Hit-single, “Who Am I,” by Casting Crowns continue to dominate radio charts of multiple formats. The single claims three No. 1 positions on Christian Radio and Retail Weekly’s radio charts. This a historical time for the group who claimed the categories for Adult Contemporary, Christian Hit Radio and Inspirational chart positions simultaneously. "Who Am I" is also No. 1 in three categories of R&R's Adult Contemporary Monitored and Adult Contemporary Indicator charts, as well as, the Inspirational chart. "Who Am I" is also No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Christian AC chart and Hot Christian Singles and Track chart, and on PDAdvisor AC, CHR and Inspirational charts.

Even though the album has been released for 8 months, the band’s songs have been continuously climbing and is now the fastest-selling album for new artists for the past 2 years. The album is selling over 400,000 copies and reaching gold status.

KLOVE music director Jon Rivers notes, "We shouldn't be surprised by Casting Crowns as they prove once again that in what they do, after Jesus, the audience ‘rules.' Great music and a powerful message will always cry out to be heard and so it has been. We are so proud of them."

Chuck Finney, program director for Salem Communications and KLTY/Dallas adds, "This song has had a huge impact on our listeners with its profound lyrics and amazing message. ‘Who Am I' just keeps getting better and better every time I hear it."

Terry Hemmings, Provident Music Group CEO and President, noted, "Everything associated with this band so far has not only exceeded our expectations but has truly amazed us. I'm most encouraged by the humility of the band members and their strong commitment to use this platform and success to teach the gospel to our youth and to minister to all of us as believers."
