Success of Arena Spring Trek Calls For Fall Continuation

Nashville, Tenn. (May 13, 2019) - Pittsburgh, Charlotte, Louisville, Tulsa, Austin and Ft. Worth are among the stops planned for the fall continuation of the “Imagine Nation Tour.” Multi-platinum selling MercyMe will spearhead the run alongside fellow GRAMMY® nominee Crowder and GMA Dove nominee Micah Tyler. Recent radio favorites “Best News Ever,” “Grace Got You” and “Even If” are housed on MercyMe's most current album LIFER, and will be among the hits included in the evening of music. 2019 has reaped both GRAMMY® and Billboard Music Award nominations for the current American Music Award winners. The tour also comes on the heels of the box office shattering film I CAN ONLY IMAGINE inspired by frontman Bart Millard’s real-life story behind the beloved MercyMe song.

About MercyMe:

It continues to be a landmark season 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 on Mar. 16, 2018 (Lionsgate, Roadside

Attractions). 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 named Top Christian Artist at the 2018 Billboard

Music Awards, scored their sixth GRAMMY® nomination, was the top winner

at the fan-fueled K-LOVE Fan Awards including a win for Artist of the Year and

won their seventh American Music Award. The group was the 2017 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, garnered more than 58 No. 1 multi-format radio

singles and four consecutive mainstream radio hits with “I Can Only Imagine,”

(No. 4 AC/Top 25 on Top 40/Hot AC), “Here With Me” (No. 4 AC), “Homesick”

(Top 10 AC) and “So Long Self.” 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 charttopping, GMA Dove Award winning and GRAMMY® nominated album,

includes the RIAA certified gold, GRAMMY® nominated smash hits "Even If”

and "Grace Got You."
