Christian group Casting Crowns is celebrating over 10 million albums sold since its label debut in 2003 as it looks forward to a new studio album.

“It is a rare honor to be in a position to congratulate an artist on the milestone of selling 10 million albums in their career,” states Terry Hemmings, President/CEO Provident Music Group. “The fact that Casting Crowns has done so, and in a relatively short period of time, clearly speaks to the power of the songs and the message this band has communicated over the last 13 years. It’s a testimony to the impact of their hard work and dedication to ministry. We are so grateful to walk alongside Casting Crowns and be part of sharing their music with the world.”

The band’s upcoming studio album, The Very Next Thing, will release Sept. 16 on Beach Street/Reunion. The new project marks the group’s 15th release and eighth studio album.

Casting Crowns will launch the The Very Next Thing Tour this fall, presented by Compassion International and Museum of the Bible. The tour will feature label mate Matt Maher and special guest newcomer Hannah Kerr.
