Highlights from Tuesday, Nov 17, 2009
Before their show in Brandon last Friday, we sat down with Mark Hall (lead vocalist and songwriter) and Juan and Melodee DeVevo of the band Casting Crowns. These guys are such a solid band! The conversation was fun, goofy, meaningful and encouraging. So, we thought we'd share the whole thing!
Ready? (As always, left click to listen to streaming audio, right click to download the mp3 audio files.)
- Mark Hall talks about the new CD and "release week."
- Mark shares where he got the inspiration to write the songs.
- Hear what happens in concert when the band plays "Glorious Day."
- Mark on raising kids and passing the faith to the next generation.
- Melodee and Juan on the incident with their son, Jesse, and the quarter.
- Mark talks about the guitar-driven title track, "Until the Whole World Sings."
- Melodee plays a 200 year-old violin! Hear about it and how it compares to Juan's guitar.
- Mark's facial hair is very deliberate, but not for reasons you may think.
- Okay, now it's getting TOO personal! Mark Hall shares his love of stools. Really.
- And finally, the band talk about their "Casting Pounds" challenge and how it's going.
