Casting Crowns with Jamie Kimmett @ Beaver Dam Amphitheater | Beaver Dam | Kentucky | United States
 CASTING CROWNS, Billboard’s top selling act in Christian music since 2007, returns to the Beaver Dam Amphitheater on Friday, June 19, 2020-7PM.  Joining them will be Jamie Kimmett. Ticket prices range from $19.50 to $49.50 and go on sale Saturday, December 14, at 8AM CST.  Beaver Dam Amphitheater now offers Reserved Gold Circle Tables, Reserved VIP seating in the lower arena, PIT General Admission tickets, and General Admission lawn seating.
With 11 million albums sold to date—including one RIAA Double Platinum Album, five Platinum and seven Gold records, and two Platinum and four Gold DVDs—Casting Crowns remains Billboard’s top selling act in Christian music since 2007. The award-winning group – consisting of Mark Hall, Melodee DeVevo, Brian Scoggin, Megan Garrett, Juan DeVevo, Chris Huffman and Josh Mix – got its start as a youth group worship band originally based in Florida. Today, each of the seven members remain active in ministry at their respective churches
Their chart-topping songs—including “Who Am I,” “Voice of Truth,” “Praise You In This Storm,” “Just Be Held” and “Only Jesus”—have earned them nine No. 1 hits at radio and four RIAA Gold certified digital singles. In addition, Casting Crowns has appeared on “Good Morning America,” NBC’s “Today,” CNN, MSNBC, “Fox News,” “Fox & Friends,” “Huckabee” and more. They also had their debut performance at Carnegie Hall in January 2015.
Singer-songwriter Jamie Kimmett’s talent for writing truth-fueled songs comes from a deeply personal place. His enthusiasm for sharing scripture and, ultimately, the hope that transformed his own life, spills over into his every interaction.  Through a series of divine appointments, Kimmett’s heart was transformed to an all-encompassing love for Jesus, a love that’s woven throughout his songs and performances offering a picture of a man completely changed by the love of Christ.

The race will start June 20 in front of the Alamo in San Antonio and finish in Greenville, S.C., on June 28.  Teams and cars from Japan, England, Germany, Canada and every corner of the U.S. will participate in their vintage automobiles that date back as far as 1916.  

Visit Owensboro and partners are so excited for this unique event!  These racers are coming from all over the world to experience our city!  When the Great Race pulls into a city it becomes an instant festival!  The riverfront will have an exciting atmosphere not only for the racers but for the entire community to come downtown to view the incredible cars while enjoying live music and having great foods and drinks!   Not only will this event be a great opportunity for the residents to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime car spectacle, it will also have a nice economic impact for our hotels, restaurants and shops!

This will definitely be a “busy week” for Owensboro with ROMP,  per Chris Joslin, Executive Director Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame and Museum, “we are happy to share our property with the Great Race as the Road to ROMP”!  

The Great Race began 37 years ago, it is not a speed race, but a time/speed/distance rally. The vehicles, each with a driver and navigator, are given precise instructions each day that detail every move down to the second.  Each are scored at secret check points along the way and are penalized one second for each second either late or early.  As in golf, the lowest score is the winner!
