Top Songs by Casting Crowns


Casting Crowns is a fan favorite with Dove Awards, a Grammy and eight straight #1 songs at radio.

There are so many songs that Casting Crowns has put out that touch people where they live that it is hard to pick favorites, but these are mine.

1. "Praise You In This Storm"

Casting Crowns - Lifesong

Full of passion and a sense of worship, "Praise You In This Storm" is a song that everyone and anyone can relate to because we've all had storms in our lives and we've all needed to be reminded that as long as there is life, there is hope.

The song was certified as a Gold single by RIAA on September 26, 2011. It spent seven weeks at #1 on the Hot Christian Songs chart and 5 weeks at #1 on the Hot Christian AC chart.

2. "Father, Spirit, Jesus"

Casting Crown - Lifesong

The catchy "Father, Spirit, Jesus" could easily become the next big thing in corporate youth worship. It's easy to sing along with, has lyrics that really tap you on the shoulder as a reminder of what worship should be, and has enough of a rock sound to keep your attention.

3. "Your Love Is Extravagant"

Casting Crowns
Beach Street Records
God's love for us is truly an extravagant thing. It's a love that defies logic and knows no bounds. Casting Crowns puts that sentiment to words in ways that we simply can not.

4. "Just Another Birthday"

Casting Crowns - Come To The Well

Megan Garrett shines on "Just Another Birthday." A song about how painful it is to be a child of divorce with no dad to be there to share your special day, it ends with a reminder that God can free us from any pain.

5. "Stained Glass Masquerade"

Casting Crowns - Lifesong

"Stained Glass Masquerade" reminds the church that none of us are perfect, but when we try to act as though we are, while in church with our peers, we become "Happy plastic people under shiny plastic steeples with walls around our weakness and smiles to hide our pain."

6. "Who Am I"

Casting Crowns
Beach Street Records

The 2005 Dove Pop/Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year asks the question ...

"Who am I, that the Lord of all the earth
Would care to know my name
Would care to feel my hurt?"

It reminds each of us that we are who and what we are not because of anything we've done but because of what Jesus did for us.

The song was certified as a Gold single by RIAA on July 26, 2011. It spent spent 6 weeks at #1 on the Hot Christian Songs chart and 3 weeks at #1 on the Hot Christian AC chart.

7. "Glorious Day (Living He Loved Me)"

Casting Crowns - Until The Whole World Hears
Beach Street Records

"Glorious Day (Living He Loved Me)" serves as a reminder that Jesus died for our sins, but that wasn't the end of the story. He beat death and (one Glorious Day) will come back.
