Nashville, Tenn. (Jun. 5, 2018) – Multi-platinum selling MercyMe will be center stage at Friday’s FOX & Friends' All-American Summer Concert Series. The morning show concert series will also host Lynyrd Skynyrd, Scotty McCreery, TobyMac and more throughout the season (for more information click here). The morning show appearance will align with the blu-ray and DVD release of the blockbuster movie I Can Only Imagine, which is available digitally today. MercyMe recently took home the Billboard Music Award for Top Christian Artist and four K-LOVE Fan Awards for Film Impact (for the box office smash I Can Only Imagine), Group or Duo of the Year, Song of the Year for "Even If" and Artist of the Year.

 

About MercyMe:
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 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 recently named Top Christian Artist at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, and was the top winner at the fan-fueled K-LOVE Fan Awards including a win for Artist of the Year. The group is the current GMA Dove Award Winners 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 57 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 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.

I Can Only Imagine - The Very Best Of MercyMe is available at Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon and iTunes.

LIFER is available at Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon and iTunes
