Nashville, Tenn. (November 19, 2013) - After 22 No. 1 singles and over 6 million albums sold, GRAMMY®-nominated, American Music Award and Dove Award winning band MercyMe is shaking things up with their brand new single and music video, "Shake."

Filmed on the downtown streets of Huntsville, Ala. with dancers from the North Alabama Dance Center and over 100 local extras, the energetic music video premiered on K-LOVE's website last Tuesday, racking up over 200,000 views in less than a week.
