Nashville, TN - Casting Crowns’ Mark Hall, veteran producer/Sawyer Brown front man Mark Miller, and music industry executive Gordon Kerr have combined their talents and passions to create M2T Records (Made To Thrive).
“M2T Records is committed to spreading the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through artists who are committed to ministry through music,” said Miller.
Partnering with Provident Label Group, the label officially entered into the Christian music world earlier this month at the Christian Music Broadcasters Momentum (CMB) Conference in Orlando, Florida. Debuting their first artist, Hannah Kerr, ministry mentor and multi-platinum selling artist Mark Hall stopped during the Casting Crowns performance to bring Kerr on stage where she performed her debut single on M2T Records, “I Stand Here."
“Hannah represents everything that Casting Crowns is about,” said Hall. “She is both a product of and a true leader in the local church. I can’t wait for the world to hear her.” On stands now, Billboard introduces M2T Records, an imprint under Black River Entertainment and distributed through Provident Label Group, to the music community and shares the origins of M2T Records. “Whether it’s country or Christian or pop,” says Kerr, “the motive is to leave this world better than you found it.”
The Billboard article goes on to reveal plans for Hannah Kerr’s debut EP produced by Mark Miller to be released this fall. “I Stand Here” impacts radio today (9/21) and is digitally available at iTunes. Click the image below to watch the "I Stand Here" lyric video.
