Multi-platinum selling group Casting Crowns holds the position as Billboard’s top selling act in Christian music since 2007. They wrapped up 2013 with three GRAMMY® nods and a RIAA 2x multi-Platinum certification, multiple RIAA Gold certifications and more. But when it comes to the heart and soul of Casting Crowns (who recently celebrated 10 years together), the root of their message is to share the gospel and disciple believers to not just survive in life, but to thrive. In conjunction with the mission, the band is premiering the emotionally powerful song “Broken Together” off their latest record Thrive. The video premieres today, May 20th, 2014 on Focus On The Family’s homepage and social pages.
“Broken Together” is a raw ballad on family dynamics and the importance of being committed to one another regardless of the circumstances. The video releases as Casting Crowns wraps up their multi-city “Thrive Tour” with special guests Laura Story and for KING & COUNTRY. The band will hit the road again for the second leg of the “Thrive Tour” in the fall with Mandisa and Sidewalk Prophets.
Thrive, which was released earlier this year, is the band’s seventh studio album. It peaked at No. 2 on the overall iTunes® album chart and debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. Accompanying the release was Mark Hall’s newest book through Zondervan, “Thrive – Digging Deep and Reaching Out.”
