A Glorious Christmas Tour will launch on the heels of brand new holiday offerings from both Casting Crowns and for KING & COUNTRY. Casting Crowns will release the EP It's Finally Christmas (Beach Street/Reunion) on Oct. 20, while A for KING & COUNTRY Christmas LIVE (Word Entertainment), recorded live by the duo in Phoenix, Ariz., is slated for an Oct. 27 release. Brand new songs from these projects and previous holiday recordings, as well as some of their biggest hits, will be showcased through the dynamic, powerful performances that have endeared both Casting Crowns and for KING & COUNTRY to millions of fans worldwide, setting the stage for an unforgettable holiday experience. 

"To us, the holiday season is the most magical time of the year, celebrating the most beautiful attributes of humanity -- family, gift giving and God descending to earth as a baby boy," say for KING & COUNTRY's Joel and Luke Smallbone. "It's ours and Casting Crowns' hope that these 13 concerts, spanning across the USA, will help usher in for us all... a truly Glorious Christmas." 

"Christmas has become clouded with so many different distractions that it's easy for us to forget to stop and take time to think about the true meaning -- how God saved the world through his Son, and the humble way in which he came," says Casting Crowns lead singer Mark Hall. "So we are excited to head out this Christmas season and share the stage with our good friends for KING & COUNTRY, as we celebrate what is genuinely glorious about this time of year. It's going to be an incredible night of fun, worship, and plenty of 'wow' moments. We'll be singing some familiar songs, but our hope is that folks might hear some of them as though it's the first time, and recapture the real heart of Christmas."
