Casting Crowns w/ Lauren Daigle

Sunday July 22 2018!

Casting Crowns Image #1 Lauren Diagle Image #1 “You can follow God from right where you are,” Mark Hall of Casting Crowns says of the new album’s central theme. “In the condition you are in right now, you can follow Him and He will make you His.”

Casting Crowns has produced some of the most compelling songs of his generation. Songs like “Voice of Truth,” “East to West,” “Lifesong,” “Until the Whole World Hears,” “Courageous” and “Thrive.” On The Very Next Thing, the band continues to encourage and inspire believers with songs that help strengthen their relationship with God.
Lauren Diagle, one of the hottest rising acts in all of Christian music, will be joining Casting Crowns on stage! She'll be bringing her new music and an amazing voice to our stage.

The hottest artist, Casting Crowns, and a fast rising special guest, Lauren Daigle, for an evening of worship on Sunday at the 2018 Great Jones County Fair!
