Posted: Friday December 16th, 2016
Multi-platinum selling and GRAMMY-award winning band CASTING CROWNS has been awarded RIAA Platinum certification for their Christmas album Peace On Earth. This marks their fifth career Platinum certification in addition to their 2x multi-Platinum album, two RIAA Platinum DVDs, seven
RIAA Gold albums, four Gold DVDs, one RIAA Platinum single and five RIAA Gold certified digital singles. The group continues to hold the position as
Billboard's top-selling act in Christian music since 2007 with more than 10 million album sales.
"We are so thankful our songs are being heard and that we can be a small part of keeping Christ in Christmas around the world through our music," shares
frontman Mark Hall.
Casting Crowns closes a busy 2016 with this certification as they released their newest studio project The Very Next Thing in September to much
acclaim and praise. The Very Next Thing is full of intimate songs as well as upbeat, fresh sounding tracks that will meet the listener with lyrics
that impact with a strong message song after song. The group's latest offering produced their 11th No. 1 radio single with the debut track "One Step Away."
Casting Crowns has also just completed the first leg of their headline tour with more than 35 dates across the country and will continue in 2017 starting
in February with more than 40 dates. Click here for dates in the new year.
