Bands of Note: Casting Crowns

Some bands just inexplicably got it right, whatever 'it' is. Somehow, they have managed to make music that is appealing in a multitude of ways. One of those bands, in my opinion, is Casting Crowns.

A band since 1999, where they served as a youth worship team, Casting Crowns has already made some major achievements and continues to make more even now. With multiple platinum albums and videos, a GRAMMY award, a number of radio hits, an American music award (2007), and a number of other honors, it is easy to see how swiftly and completely this group has swept the world of Christian music.

If you've ever heard Casting Crowns' music, you will probably agree with me that their message in their lyrics is fantastic. Since hearing "Who Am I" many years back, I have been amazed by how spot on the lyrics are to real issues of the Christian world. To me, they accurately portray the way the general Christian population has strayed from God's original plan and the need for all of us to recenter our lives on Christ and spread his love to others. From songs of encouragement and strength like "Voice of Truth" to more serious, mellow songs such as "Slow Fade", Casting Crowns presents a wonderful message in a way that is pleasing to the ear and in most cases, extremely uplifting to listen to.

Casting Crowns' newest CD, "Until the Whole World Hears" (2009) has received much praise and radio play on stations like KLOVE and AIR1, however, their older CDs still remain classics and are among the most played Christian music songs. If you haven't already, I highly suggest checking out Casting Crowns' music, as they really seem to have a good thing going.
