Casting Crowns Earn US No.2 Chart Position With New Album 'Come To The Well'

Oct 27 2011

Casting Crowns have scored a huge chart success with the release of their new studio album 'Come To The Well'. The album was the second biggest selling album overall in the USA last week, according to the Billboard 200 album chart, and the number 1 selling Christian album. On iTunes 'Come To The Well' was number 3 on the overall album chart and number 1 on the iTunes Christian Albums chart.

The band's fourth studio album sold an extraordinary 99,138 copies in it's release week, making it the highest new entry at Number 2 in the Billboard Top 200, only beaten by Adele's '21' which sold 106,000 copies. The chart success led to an article mention on Billboard's website, and even congratulations from celebrity blogger Perez Hilton who wrote, "A tip of the hat to these fine folks this morn'. Some of you might be more familiar with Christian rockers Casting Crowns than we are, but the band themselves must have a rather devoted following... Congrats guys! You're quite blessed!"

'Come To The Well' includes the new single 'Courageous', which landed at number 1 on the iTunes Christian Songs chart last week as well, and also appears in the new action-packed movie 'Courageous', from the creators of the 'Fireproof' movie.

01. Courageous
02. City on a Hill
