I’ve listened to Christian music for about 12 years. Originally, I bought those compilations that you could buy at Walmart (featuring mostly Joel Engle…look him up if you don’t remember him). Eventually, I got bored with it. So, I moved on. After a couple years listening to almost exclusively secular music, I returned to the Christian music world.
I started listening to Casting Crowns. They were great. I loved pretty much everything about them. Their first two CDs helped me get through a tough 8th grade, and my love for them continued (and intensified) in high school. I actually got to see them in concert during my freshman year.
It was amazing. When they first came out and started singing, I freaked out. Like legit fan-girl stuff (well, I guess fan-boys are a thing too). The concert was great…it was basically a church service. They’re a band focused on the message of their songs and reaching people. But that’s not what the point of this post is.
