American Music Awards

Hello S.L.O.Bs!!!

So we received some awesome news today. You’re very own MercyMe has been nominated for an American Music Award!!!! For those who may not know, the cool thing about being nominated for one of these is that YOU GUYS pick the winners. Unlike other awards that are decided by industry type folks, and big wigs, the AMA goes to the artist/band, that the fans vote for.

So now, we put it to you… can you help us win the 2008 AMA??? As always, there is some stiff competition with our friends in Third Day and Casting Crowns, so we’re just honored to be in the running at all. But all brotherly Christian love aside… wouldn’t you like to say you helped us beat them?!?!?!?

That’s right Mark Hall and Mac Powell, today we officially start the “AMA Smackdown!” If in fact we win… we will write an original song thanking you all and perform it as a Cover Tune Grab Bag.

S.L.O.Bs UNITE!!!!

    Done! Good luck guys!!

  • islandchick

    Oh nooooo! It’s like asking me to pick a favorite child, how does one decided whose music blessed them the most? Can’t you guys all just merge and form :

    “MercyCastingDay”, “ThirdMercyCasting”,or “CastingThirdMercy”

    It would make things so much easier. However since you’ve sweetened the deal with the promise of a special CTGB, my vote is yours. I hope my children never find out I can be bribed :-)

    Where do we go to cast our vote? :) Congrats! Looking forward to seeing that powder blue tuxedo. ha!

  • Brenda E

    Hmmm, what to do…what to do….
    Mark Hall said if we picked them then we’d all get free t-shirts and Mac Powell said they’d name a new CD after us SLOBS.
    so…Could you get us all on the Music Boat??? : )

    They need a new award for best website for fans, believe me, you guys make it fun and got it won handsdown!

    God has blessed us all through all of you, so I like the MercyCastingDay idea!

  • Brenda E

    P.S. When they call your name MM, remember to not stick out your tongue, jump up and flex muscles or plant your thumb on your nose wiggling your fingers at them. People are watching…looking for Jesus…people are watching…

  • Stacey

    I having trouble trying to vote and yes it is a tough choice but i will vote for Mercy Me. So anyways i will keep trying to summit my vote.

  • Brenda E

    See? Just think of all us SLOB’s on that boat. What a great time it would be!!!
    We’d even get matching T-Shirts!

  • Rebecca T :P

    OH YEAH!
    Lets beat the “CastingThird-” part!!!

    You know what, pple? if you have a hard time choosing MercyMe over Third Day and Casting Crowns….

    it’s true, you guys did say something about t-shirts- and we’re still waiting, so, how about getting on that? if making a SLOB t-shirt is really all that difficult, then at least hold a contest and let US design it.

  • Rebecca T :P

    OH YEAH!

    T-shirts are coming…we’re still trying to find the right SLOB logo…we promise!!!!!

    wahoo, I need a new MM shirt, errr um SLOB shirt. ;) You guys haven’t been in town in a long time and your online store isn’t working (at least I can’t get it to work). haha. btw, I watched a portion of the concert tonight on MMtv…despite some minor techincal difficulties, it was sooo awesome to be able to watch it. Like I said, I’m having MM withdrawls. One year is the longest I’ve gone since seeing ya’ll, but you come around either. :(

  • http://www.whatsthislifefor.org Toby

    Let me just say that MMTV is an IV drip of goodness for me. Being in Germany makes it kind of tough to see you guys live and to have this alternative is awesome!! Watched you guys in MD last night (this morning) and felt like I was right there!!
    Now then, if you guys could start doing morning concerts so it’s not 3 am my time, that would be great!! :-)

    Thanks for sharing!!

  • Brenda E

    Thanks Mike : )
    Gotta agree with Toby, this is so much fun to have the blog site. I could go see a CTGB concert! But I loved the praise offered to God at your real concert also and it was just what I needed to be in the midst of.

    Just voted guys!!! :) Rooting for you!

  • Beth M.

    AWESOME! Just voted for you guys! You’ll win NO DOUBT ABOUT IT!! Are you going to be performing there as well? Please consider coming to the Downingtown PA area! Lots of MM fans here! What do we need to do to get you closer?? We’ve traveled to Hershey, Penn State and Philadelphia to see you guys…want to go to the Hagerstown MD show but getting overnight babysitters isn’t easy! Oh well!! I’ll watch the next best thing…on line! Looking forward to the next CTGB! They are hilarious!
    Your MM groupie fan from Downingtown :)
