HUTCHINSON, Kan. — The 2024 Kansas State Fair is thrilled to announce an evening of soul-stirring music as Casting Crowns performs with Katy Nichole. The concert is set to take place on Wednesday, September 11, at 7:30 p.m.

Casting Crowns, renowned for boiling down life’s most challenging moments into powerful proclamations of faith, is set to bring their latest album, Healer, to life on stage. Lead singer and primary songwriter Mark Hall crafted songs that speak to the struggles, fears, and uncertainties faced during the pandemic, highlighting the need for Jesus the Healer to be the center of our lives. With more than 13 million albums sold, Grammy Awards, Dove Awards, American Music Awards, and Billboard Music Awards under their belt, Casting Crowns has solidified their place as one of Christian music’s most influential bands.

Opening for Casting Crowns is rising star Katy Nichole, whose breakout year in 2022 saw her smash hit “In Jesus Name (God of Possible)” crown the Billboard Hot Christian Songs chart for a record-breaking 20 weeks. With her unabashed honesty and vocal clarity, Katy Nichole has quickly become one of Christian music’s fastest-rising artists. Her debut album, Jesus Changed My Life, showcases her journey from anxiety and depression to health and wholeness, delivering songs filled with hope and inspiration.
