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.
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.
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.
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.
6. "Who Am I"
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.
