A Live Worship Experience was recorded live during summer 2015 at Eagle's Landing First Baptist Church, which is Casting Crowns' home church and where frontman, Mark Hall, has remained a full-time youth pastor for more than 20 years.
A Live Worship Experience features a combination of favorites from Casting Crowns as well as worship songs currently being sung in churches across the globe. Top worship songs included are "Great Are You Lord," "Good Good Father," "Here's My Heart," "Called Me Higher" and "No Not One." Casting Crowns' tracks include "Thrive," "You Are The Only One," and "Just Be Held.""Casting Crowns comes from, serves in, and has always been firmly rooted in the local church," shares Jason McArthur, VP A&R, PLG. "So it seemed only natural to record them worshiping in their own church environment, lending their incredible sound to songs the church at large is familiar with each week."

Flawless Live Worship| Posted December 03, 2015
Iconic Georgia-based group Casting Crowns has been a household name in the Christian music world since 2003, with good reason. The group has released successful album after successful album, and Mark Hall's knack for tackling real-world thoughts and emotions (as well as his own personal battles) through song is astounding and noteworthy. Although the band has released two live albums from various tours, the one thing they've yet to do is a live fully worship-focused album. Recently, they finally waded into those waters with A Live Worship Experience, and the result was worth it.
A Live Worship Experience, like everything Casting Crowns puts out, provides a little something for everyone. There are emotionally hard-hitting songs such as "Just Be Held," "The Well" and "You Are The Only One," which provide reminders that God is the only One who holds our entire lives in His hands--a truth that is immensely comforting. There are also moments of energetic worship, such as "No Not One," which has the traditional high-energy tempo of contemporary worship while expressing the uniquely great love of Christ.
The band also featured three covers on their worship album: "Good Good Father," "Great Are You Lord" and their own version of David Crowder Band's "Here's My Heart." These three songs are fantastic for the worship set, played in typical Casting Crowns style-- simple, musically organized, but powerful nonetheless, making these covers a great addition.
The band ends the set with two of their newest hits, "Jesus, Friend of Sinners" and "Thrive," as well as with a monologue from Mark Hall talking about the first song. These two songs are great live, with "Thrive" being an interesting journey into the folk-pop style which graces the radio these days-- something that another song on the album, "Called Me Higher," also explores.
Casting Crowns has delivered yet another spectacular album-- this time, it's live worship, and it's definitely worth hearing.
