ABOUT CASTING CROWNS “HEALER” ALBUM

Boiling down life’s most challenging moments into digestible proclamations of faith is a
cornerstone of the Casting Crowns brand. Singable truths that point to Jesus is what they’ve
always been about and always will be about. But when setting out to write songs for their latest
album, Healer, lead singer and primary songwriter Mark Hall was faced with a brand-new
challenge. Like the rest of the world, he was stuck at home in the middle of a pandemic. Mark
knew, given the circumstances, he needed to write songs for the moment. But the moment
loomed so large, so global, it seemed an impossible task. Mark chose to stick to his signature
straightforward truth and did the only thing he could do – he wrote from the heart. As he began crafting songs speaking to his own struggles, his own fears and uncertainty, an undeniable theme emerged.

“I was walking through the world being shut down, just like everybody else. I’ve been a youth
pastor for over twenty years and here I was counseling teenagers who’d just lost their senior
year, lost their friend groups, felt hopeless for the future. As I started working on this record, I
realized all the songs I was writing dealt with healing in some way, something we all need. And
more than that, we need a Healer. This whole album is about healing, about how God meets us
where we are and what His healing looks like.”

Healer, while sonically diverse, drives home one main idea - the need for Jesus the Healer to be
the center of our lives. The title track, a sweeping. big-voiced plea-turned-prayer, speaks to the
things we often try instead of turning to the Healer. “The point of this song is that healing is not
going to come from the people we’re voting for or the people we’re following on screens,” Mark says. “It’s only going to come from Jesus. He is the Healer.” “Desert Road,” a harmony-filled tune that plays like a Casting Crowns classic, speaks to those moments when God’s plan isn’t clear, but we’re still called to follow. It’s about the journey of getting past yourself and realizing God knows what He’s doing, that He’s already at the end of the road looking back on it. “When you feel like you’re not in control, it can feel like no one’s in control,” Mark shares. “When we can’t see the plan, we start wondering if there even is a plan.
Sometimes He calms the storms and sometimes He rides them out with us. We have to learn how to let go of how we feel and learn to lean in to Who we know.”

Mark 2 tells the story of a group of friends who brought their one friend to Jesus for healing.
When the crowd was too large, they lowered their friend through the roof of a house to reach
Jesus, and Jesus healed him. Inspired by that story, Mark wrote “Anything But Easy,” a song
about bringing our loved ones to Jesus, no matter the obstacle or circumstance. “The healing
we’re praying for in people’s lives, God may be saying, I’m ready to heal their heart but I’m
going to do it through how you love them. That’s the question I’m asking myself. Do I love my
friend enough to push through the awkwardness or them pushing back and not wanting to hear it, in order for them to have the truth?”
