MercyMe: Imagine Nation Tour
American Music Award Winning group MercyMe will be bringing their 2019 “Imagine Nation Tour” to FedExForum on March 29, 2019. The group will tour alongside fellow Grammy nominated artist Crowder and GMA Dove Award nominee Micah Tyler.
MercyMe just garnered their seventh AMA nomination following two previous wins. The current GMA Dove Awards Artist of the Year are also up for two awards at the upcoming 49th Annual GMA Dove Awards, including Artist of the Year.
Now up for a People’s Choice Award, I CAN ONLY IMAGINE, is the box office shattering film inspired by frontman Bart Millard’s real-life story behind the beloved MercyMe song. “Best News Ever” marks the newest single that took over radio stations this month. The song is found on the group’s GRAMMY® nominated release LIFER and is the follow-up to "Grace Got You" which spent seven weeks atop Billboard’s AC Monitored Chart.
It continues to be a landmark year for the multi-platinum selling MercyMe. A major motion picture based on the life of frontman Bart Millard who wrote the mega-hit song "I Can Only Imagine” after the loss of his father opened at a remarkable No. 3 at the box office this past March. Carrying the same name, Millard’s first memoir also released this year followed by the unveiling of I Can Only Imagine – The Very Best Of MercyMe. MercyMe was recently named Top Christian Artist at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, was the top winner at the fan-fueled K-LOVE Fan Awards including a win for Artist of the Year and just received their seventh AMA nod. The group is the current GMA Dove Award Winner for Artist Of The Year. Since their debut in 2001, GRAMMY® nominated, multiple American Music Award and Dove Award winners MercyMe have sold more than 9 million units in CD, single and DVD sales. MercyMe made history in 2014 as “I Can Only Imagine” surpassed 2 million digital downloads, making it the first song in Christian music to go platinum and double-platinum in the digital domain. The album containing the hit, “Almost There,” recently received triple platinum certification from the RIAA. In 2009, Billboard named MercyMe's "Word Of God Speak" the No. 1 Song of The Decade and the group the No. 1 Artist of the Decade in both the Christian Songs and Christian AC Songs categories, recognizing them as one of the industry's most notable talents. They have sold out venues throughout the US and Canada, including Radio City Music Hall, and have appeared on the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, The Today Show, CBS This Morning, FOX New Channel's FOX & Friends, CNN, ABC News and in the pages of Entertainment Weekly, The New York Times, USA Today and more. MercyMe’s eighth studio album, the RIAA Certified Gold Welcome To The New, garnered two GRAMMY® nods and four radio hits. LIFER, their latest chart-topping, GMA Dove Award winning and GRAMMY® nominated album, includes the RIAA certified gold, GRAMMY® nominated smash hit "Even If” which dominated the Billboard and Mediabase radio charts with a 19- week streak at No. 1.
