Christian rock group Casting Crowns began as a student worship band in Daytona Beach, Florida, in 1999. Led by singer, songwriter, and youth pastor Mark Hall, the group initially included guitarists Juan DeVevo and Hector Cervantes, violinist Melodee DeVevo, and drummer Rob Cervantes (a.k.a. Chavez). The group relocated to Stockbridge, Georgia, in 2001, adding Chris Huffman on bass, Megan Garrett on keyboards and accordion, and drummer Andy Williams. This augmented version of Casting Crowns released two independent albums on CD, both of which were well received in the Atlanta area. Both independent albums were efforts on the part of Mark Hall and the rest of the group as outreach projects for youth in the area. The group won the GMA regional songwriters competition at Palm Beach Atlantic University, West Palm Beach, Florida, in both the “Best Song” and the “Best Artist” categories in 2004. Although the group was not searching for a record label, one of the group’s albums found its way into the hands of Mark Miller, lead singer for country group Sawyer Brown, who was struck by Casting Crowns’ driving pop/rock style and Hall’s vocal delivery of his hard-hitting but devout songs. Miller signed Casting Crowns to his fledgling Beach Street Records, a division of Reunion Records with distribution by the Provident Label Group, making Casting Crowns the first artist signed to Beach Street Records.

Mark Miller took the group into the studio along with co-producer Steven Curtis Chapman, himself a popular artist on the CCM musical scene. The resulting eponymous album, Casting Crowns, was released in 2003 on the Beach Street imprint. The album quickly made them one of the fastest selling debut artists in Christian music history. The album’s third single, “Voice of Truth”, spent a record-breaking fourteen consecutive weeks at No. 1 beginning in 2003. “Voice of Truth” is also used in the trailer and the ending from the movie Facing the Giants. The album was certified platinum in 2005, and in 2011, the group received their first gold certification for a single for the song ‘Who Am I’ from their debut record. Lifesong followed in 2005, debuting at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album had three singles: “Lifesong”, “Praise You in this Storm”, and “Does Anybody Hear Her?”. “Lifesong” spent nine weeks in the top spot, with “Praise You in This Storm” remaining at No. 1 for seven weeks. Apart from being successful in the charts, Lifesong earned Casting Crowns their first Grammy Award for their work on the album in 2006. In 2006, the group released Lifesong Live, which included live performances of songs from their studio album Lifesong.

The band’s third studio album The Altar and the Door debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and No. 1 on the Hot Christian Albums chart upon its release in August 2007. Ten weeks after the album’s release date, it was certified gold by the RIAA. On September 27, 2007, the band embarked on the ‘Altar and the Door’ tour with Leeland and John Waller . The tour was highly successful, grossing $4.4 million in ticket sales.[8] Casting Crowns broke their own record in 2007 when the single “East to West” from The Altar and the Door hit sixteen consecutive weeks at No. 1. The song ended up enjoying the top spot for a total of nineteen weeks, now their most successful single to date. “Slow Fade” was also released as a single, and was included in the soundtrack of the Kirk Cameron film Fireproof. In 2008, Casting Crowns scored their eighth number one hit with “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day”, a track from their newly released Christmas album entitled Peace on Earth. On October 11, 2018, the band announced their new album, Only Jesus, scheduled for release on November 16, 2018, with a video introduction by Mark Hall and made the title track available to those on their fans list.[23][24] On October 12, 2018, they also released a second track, “Nobody”, featuring Matthew West, to fans. On October 19, they released a third track, “In the Hands of the Potter” to those on their fans list.
