Billboard Music Awards

Multi-Platinum Selling Band A Top Nominee At This Weekend’s K-LOVE Fan Awards

MercyMe earned a Top Christian Artist win at last night’s 2018 Billboard Music Awards! The top honor marks the first win for the band who has garnered a dozen BBMA nods throughout the course of their career thus far. Additionally, the multi-platinum selling band eclipsed all categories for their genre at this year’s show with recognition in the Top Christian Album (LIFER) and Top Christian Song (“Even If”) categories. 

“We never set out to write, make music & tour for an award, but to have Billboard send this honor our way means a great deal to us,” shares the band. “It has been unreal to see the Lord use the power of music and stories to permeate lives. Thank you to Billboard for being so kind to us throughout our career, especially with this award, and thank you to the fans for sharing in this journey with us.”

MercyMe is a top nominee at the upcoming fan-voted 2018 K-LOVE Fan Awards with four nominations including Film Impact (for the widely successful blockbuster I Can Only Imagine), Group or Duo of the Year, Song of the Year (“Even If”) and Artist of the Year. The super group will also perform on the show, noting a special performance with Trace Adkins. The 2018 K-LOVE Fan Awards will take place on Sun., May 27, capping a weekend full of rare experiences for listeners. Marking the show’s first appearance on television, TBN will broadcast the 2018 K-LOVE FanAwards on Thurs., May 31 at 8 p.m. ET. 

“Grace Got You” Feat. John Reuben is the latest MercyMe single to resonate at radio, currently charting in the top 10 at AC Monitored, Christian Airplay and AC Indicator along with top 20 at Hot AC.

The 5X GRAMMY® nominated band wrapped the “MercyMe LIVE” Tour selling out 16 markets including Nashville, Columbus, St. Louis and Minneapolis with Tenth Avenue North and special guest Tim Timmons earlier this year. MercyMe will reprise the line-up with longtime friends Tenth Avenue North for “The Imagine Nation Tour” this fall with 20+ markets on the docket.

It continues to be a landmark year for the current GMA Dove Award titled “Artist Of The Year.” 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 released last month. I Can Only Imagine – The Very Best Of MercyMe is available now. MercyMe was recently named Top Christian Artist at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards. The group is a top nominee at the upcoming fan-fueled K-LOVE Fan Awards with four nominations.

    “ I Can Only Imagine”, movie & the song move me so much. That’s because from the movie you learn the origin of the meaning of the song. How awesome! Please keep inspiring us.

    i attended Mercy Me concert 10/4/18 in Indianapolis Ind. Been to over 32 concerts in life this was best of top 3! Out of this world! I’m wearing the cds out! Exactly what I needed at this very time in my life! Far exceeded my expectations! Would definitely see them again! And Fifth Ave N. was outstanding as well! I bought the three cds available of Mercyme. Almost fainted I got to buy them at $5.00 each. Ever since I left concert I’ve been devastated that I didn’t think to buy a bunch for gifts!! Huge regret! Some day in future I’ll have the money to where paying full price won’t even be an issue. I actually felt kinda bad only paying $5.00 each for the three cds. MERCY ME ROCKS!!! WHAT A GIFT TO THE WORLD! I will be on a high from this for long time!
    I wanted to ask if there would be anyway possible I could buy the same three cds for $5.00 each through the internet although concert is over? I am interested in buying a lot! I am currently also looking into buying them used so I can afford to buy as many as I’m wanting. I hope its not rude or inconsiderate of me to ask this question. I will totally understand if your answer is no. But I couldn’t resist at least asking. MY PRAYER FOR BOTH GROUPS IS THAT GOD BLESSES THEM AND THEIR FAMILIES BEYOND THEIR IMAGINATION FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES!! Its no wonder they were awarded group album artist of yr 2018! WOW!
    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to read this respond at a convenient time.
    Sincerely, Angie Leslie 10/7/18
