Casting Crowns Nominated for 2015 American Music Award

Yesterday Casting Crowns was nominated for the second straight year for an American Music Award in the “Favorite Artist – Contemporary Inspirational” category. This is the group’s seventh nomination, and last year they won the award for the second time.

The 2015 American Music Awards will be broadcast live from Los Angeles’ Nokia Theater L.A. on Sunday, November 22nd on ABC. The AMAs are a fan-voted award show with winners determined by votes cast online as well as via Twitter. The voting is now open, and fans can vote by clicking on the AMA site.

Last night, Casting Crowns performed a powerful version of “At Calvary” backed by a 200+ member choir at the 46th Annual GMA Dove Awards. The televised awards show including their performance will air on TBN on Sunday, October 18 at 9 pm CT.

The GRAMMY-winning and multi-Platinum selling group will release their new live project, A Live Worship Experience, on November 13th (Beach Street/Reunion). A Live Worship Experience was recorded live this summer at Eagle’s Landing First Baptist Church, which is Casting Crowns’ home church and where frontman, Mark Hall, has remained a full-time youth pastor for more than 20 years. The group is currently on tour with special guest Lauren Daigle – see the complete list of the tour dates below.

In their career, Casting Crowns has been awarded one RIAA 2x multi-Platinum album, four RIAA Platinum albums, two RIAA Platinum DVDs, six RIAA Gold albums, four Gold DVDs and four RIAA Gold certified digital singles. This incredible group also holds the position as Billboard’s top-selling act in Christian music since 2007.
