We are excited to share that we’ve been awarded a RIAA Platinum certification for the Christmas album Peace On Earth. This marks the fifth career Platinum certification in addition to a 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. As a group, we’ve continued 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 Mark Hall.
Casting Crowns closed a busy 2016 with this certification shortly after we released the 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.”
