They ended their exciting post with the ever-tempting question "If you could ask for anything from Casting Crowns what would it be?"
Their followers immediately took the comment section and began shooting their requests.

Casting Crowns began as a student worship band in Daytona Beach. At the center of Casting Crowns is Mark Hall, who was orginally leading a band of people that consisted of his youth group.
The band's first major release was certified platinum. Their next album secured them a Grammy Award and every album since has been in the top five of the Billboard 200 charts. In September 2013, the band released "All You've Ever Wanted," the first single from their forthcoming CD Thrive.
Thrive is scheduled to come out January 28, 2014.
