Countdown to Christmas:
ARTIST OF THE DAY
This Greenville, TX band has been cranking out number 1 hits and gold and platinum albums for almost 20 years. In fact, it was 12 years ago that they wrote and recorded a song that transformed Christian music. You might have heard of the tune "I Can Only Imagine."
Charts: MercyMe's 7th studio album The Hurt & The Healer debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 top albums. That's not just Christian albums - that's every album!
Funny: The group’s name, “MercyMe”, originated during Bart’s time as a youth ministry intern in Florida. Bart’s grandmother would exclaim, “Well mercy me, why don’t you get a real job?”
Little Known Fact: Bart Millard was a footballer in high school until he sustained an injury to his ankle. He took up choir in school as an elective and never stopped singing.
Sailing: You can join MercyMe for a 7-day cruise to the Caribbean next January for their 2nd Annual Rock & Worship Boatshow!
