“Everyone knows that unity is one of the most powerful forces in the world,” said Shane Quick, Premier Productions owner. “These bands coming together represent that very force. The prayer is that this tour exemplifies the unity of the body of Christ. One body and one voice. This tour is going to be a once-in-a-lifetime event. Never before have we seen these bands tour together. It’s a can’t-miss experience.”
Casting Crowns, a seven-piece band from Georgia, debuted their first album in 2003. From the very beginning, the local church has been the base of the band’s music. “Because we have the honor of walking with people in our churches, we get to see what people are going through – the issues that are impacting everyone now,” said Mark Hall, lead singer and primary songwriter. “It’s in these situations that ideas are born for what we all need to hear right here and now.” Casting Crowns has since released 12 albums, achieved 18 Gospel Music Association (GMA) Dove Awards, and won a Grammy while continuing their ministry and mission around the world.
