Casting Crowns at the Expo

Casting Crowns is coming to the East Kentucky Expo Center, March 24, 2017. Tickets will be on sale Friday, December 16! Show begins at 7:00 p.m. Featuring special guests Danny Gokey and Unspoken.

“The Very Next Thing” Tour supports Casting Crowns’ newest studio album, The Very Next Thing, (Beach Street/Reunion). This marks the group’s 15th release and eighth studio album since the label debut release in 2003. With more than 10 million records sold, Casting Crowns has held the position of Billboard’s top-selling act in Christian music since 2007.

Casting Crowns began in, serves in and continues to be rooted in the local church. It is at the local level that they are walking along with people in ministry and where the inspiration for albums are formed.

“Because we have the honor of walking with people in our churches, we get to see what people are going through – the issues that are impacting everyone now,” shares front man Mark Hall. “It is in these situations that ideas are born for what we all need to hear right here right now.”

The Very Next Thing is full of intimate songs as well as upbeat, fresh sounding tracks that will meet the listener with lyrics that impact with a strong message song after song.

Hall shares the inspiration behind the new album and title. “We are all in different stages of ‘next.’ There’s a next step from where you are right now. We all feel like there’s a stage that we have to reach to move on to what is next – but God has you right here right now for your ‘next,’ and all of these songs touch on that idea.”

Casting Crowns continues to impact audiences with their powerful lyrics and live show as they have performed for more than six million fans. In addition, more than 85,000 child sponsorships have resulted through Casting Crowns’ live shows. For more information on “The Very Next Thing” Tour, visit

About Artists Collaborative Theatre

Artists Collaborative Theatre is located in the beautiful Appalachian mountains of Eastern Kentucky. We are in Elkhorn City, gateway community to the Breaks Interstate Park. Our first production was an amazing production of The Kentucky Cycle, July 2002. ACT built its company focusing on quality with local talent. ACT was awarded Coal Severance Tax funds to build a $400,000.00 black box theatre. In 2008, the new facility opened to feature year round, balanced season of six productions per year, sixteen performances per production, free educational program serving over fifty children per semester, along with educational outreach. We are a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization, and we celebrated our 10th Anniversary of service to our area in July of 2012! Artists Collaborative Theatre is the most awarded community theatre in Kentucky, winning state, regional, and national awards.
