MercyMe closed 2017 on a high note with a GRAMMY nomination for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song for “Even If” and for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for Lifer, after the wrapping of their successful headlining “Lifer Tour.” Also this year, MercyMe has accumulated three GMA Dove Award wins, including the Artist of the Year title, and their sixth American Music Award (AMA) nomination. Much of the fanfare stems from their most recent No. 1 album, LIFER, which debuted earlier this year, and includes “Even If,” which dominated the Billboard and Mediabase radio charts with a 19-week streak at No. 1 and the movement-infused “Happy Dance.”

The much-anticipated new movie, “I Can Only Imagine,” a true story based on the life of Bart Millard, who wrote the mega-hit song “I Can Only Imagine” after the loss of his father to cancer, opens in theaters on March 16, 2018.
