Reunion Records/Beach Street Records recording artist Casting Crowns received its third career American Music Award last night for "Favorite Artist -- Contemporary Inspirational." The award was presented during the AMA live broadcast on ABC Network television at L.A.'s Nokia Theater. Hillsong United and Newsboys were the other two nominees. 
 
Thrive, Casting Crowns' latest album release, hit #1 on the Billboard Contemporary Christian Albums Chart and #6 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart on its recent street week.
 
The record breaking group is currently on the fall leg of its highly successful Thrive Tour, including a sold out performance at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colo. The band will also perform at New York's famed Carnegie Hall on January 24, 2015 as part of a full weekend with fans.
 
Casting Crowns is one of the most successful Contemporary Christian artists, also crossing over onto the mainstream charts with one double Platinum album (CASTING CROWNS), three Platinum albums (THE ALTAR AND THE DOOR, LIFESONG, CASTING CROWNS) and six Gold albums (COME TO THE WELL, UNTIL THE WHOLE WORLD HEARS, PEACE ON EARTH, THE ALTAR AND THE DOOR, LIFESONG and CASTING CROWNS).  Having also released four Gold DVDs and four RIAA Gold certified digital singles; the band currently holds the position as Billboard's top-selling act in Christian music since 2007.
 
The AMA, GRAMMY and Dove Award winning group features Mark Hall, Melodee Devevo, Brian Scoggin, Megan Garrett, Juan Devevo, Chris Huffman and Josh Mix, who have been recording and touring for more than 10 years -- since they heard their first single on the radio in 2003.  Casting Crowns has been honored with three American Music Awards (seven nominations), a GRAMMY Award for its 2005 album LIFESONG (six nominations), 17 GMA Dove Awards and two Billboard Music Awards (four nominations).
