Time for another update on some of our Night of Joy 2016 artists.

Casting Crowns, a Night of Joy favorite, has had a HUGE year this year and it’s only getting bigger. They have a gigantic new album coming out this year called “The Very Next Thing” and a fall tour kicking off right after Night of Joy Sept. 22nd and goes through Dec 4th.

According to the Band, “The Very Next Thing” is a collection of intimate songs as well as upbeat, fresh sounding tracks with impactful lyrics centered around identifying and acting on what’s right next to you.

If you haven’t heard the new single, “One Step Away,” it’s spectacular!

We caught up with the CC crew recently as they flew through Central Florida to chat with them about Night of Joy memories and this year’s event at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

This year, Night of Joy guests will have more options than ever with two nights of Contemporary Christian music, ample seating at indoor and outdoor venues, amazing performances on multiple stages, including Champion Stadium, and opportunities for fellowship and fun. We also have ticket options that allow you to maximize your park time doing rides and then maximize your concerts and time together at night – plus you pick your park!
