Casting Crowns received two 2015 Billboard Music Award nominations. The group appears in the Top Christian Artist and Top Christian Album categories for its latest album THRIVE, which was named the best-selling record of 2014 according the Christian/Gospel Nielsen SoundScan chart. The band also still currently holds the position as Billboard’s top-selling act in Christian music since 2007.
With the addition of these new nominations, Casting Crowns has now garnered eight career Billboard Music Award nods with two wins in 2012.
The GRAMMY 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 (eight nominations).
Winners will be announced at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards which airs live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 17, 8/7c on the ABC Television Network.
