Casting Crowns' Acoustic Sessions Live tour hits Albany, Thursday, March 28 at 7 p.m.
ALBANY, Ga. — Casting Crowns, one of Christian music's most prolific bands, will take to the stage Thursday night as a part of its Acoustics Sessions Live Spring Concert tour.
With more than 2,000 tickets already sold, the event is proving to be a hot item, tour officials say.
With three Grammys, an American Music Award and 14 GMA Dove Awards, Casting Crowns is one of the world's top Christian performing groups. For eight years, the Atlanta-based group has been churning out praise and worship music.

Taking its name from the group’s brand new release, Casting Crowns – The Acoustic Sessions: Volume 1, the Acoustic Sessions Live Tour will be a special limited-run series of performances in 18 cities this spring. It’s a follow-up to the band’s hugely successful 2012 “Come To The Well” Tour which featured 40 sold-out performances to more than 370,000 people, making it one of the most successful Christian artist tours of all time.
“As a believer, all of your life has to stem from what you draw from,” says Casting Crowns frontman and principal songwriter Mark Hall. “If you’re drawing from a marriage, you’re in trouble because that person wasn’t created to complete you. If you are trying to draw from a career, you’re in trouble. If you are trying to draw from your strengths, strengths come and go. All these things are really holes, not wells. Jesus is the well.”
Thursday's concert will also feature Dara Maclean, the Texas-based Christian artist who recently released her debut CD "You Got My Attention."
According to her website, she started expressing her love of God while barely a teenager.
She was 13 when she began leading worship and singing in church. She credits The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill with "helping me discover who I wanted to be as an artist. I remember talking to my mom and dad about how she was quoting scripture in her lyrics in such a unique way. I just loved it. Not long after that, I started playing guitar and diving into writing for myself."
The concert starts at 7 p.m. and tickets, which range in price from $25 to $45, are available through Ticketmaster by clicking here, at the box office at the Albany Civic Center or by calling (800) 745-3000.
