CASTING CROWNS ANNOUNCE THE THRIVE TOUR, LAUNCHING THIS SPRING WITH SPECIAL GUESTS LAURA STORY AND FOR KING & COUNTRY



thrive-tour-casting-crowns-2014Multi-Platinum selling group Casting Crowns will embark on a brand-new 40-city tour this spring in support of the band’s highly-anticipated studio album, THRIVE (releasing January 28, 2014). The THRIVE Tour will feature GRAMMY®-winning worship leader Laura Story and reigning GMA New Artist of the Year for KING & COUNTRY. The tour launches Feb. 20, 2014 in Lexington, Ky., and will continue throughout the spring visiting major markets, including Charlotte, Raleigh, Tampa, Minneapolis, Greenville, Houston, Orlando and Grand Rapids, among others.

In the past year, Casting Crowns has garnered numerous accolades including three GRAMMY® nominations, an RIAA 2x multi-Platinum certification and multiple RIAA Gold certifications, with total album sales surpassing 8 million. Building on that momentum, The THRIVE Tour is sure to not disappoint, with a set list that includes Casting Crowns’ biggest hits – spanning more than a decade of ministry – in addition to selections from the group’s new release, THRIVE (Beach Street/Reunion Records), the band’s first full-length effort in two years.

The songs on THRIVE are an extension of what lead singer/songwriter Mark Hall has been teaching his students at Eagle’s Landing First Baptist Church in Atlanta, where he serves as youth pastor. The heart behind the project is for these songs to encourage believers to dig down into the roots of who they are in Christ so that they are fully equipped to reach out and share their faith with others. Following this theme, half of the songs on the album are focused on “reaching out,” while the other half are dedicated to “digging deep.”

Tickets for all tour dates are available at www.CastingCrowns.com. In addition, special VIP add-on tickets are available at most shows and include a pre-show Q&A with Casting Crowns and an autographed copy of THRIVE.

The THRIVE Tour is partnering with Christian humanitarian organization World Vision ( www.worldvision.org). World Vision provides assistance to approximately 100 million people in nearly 100 countries by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. Casting Crowns has helped to generate more than 70,000 child sponsorships for World Vision to date.
