“Hymned Again”

Hello SLOBland!

Well it’s getting closer and closer to the release of my solo record “Hymned Again.” So I thought I would answer a few questions I have been asked throughout the making of this record.

1. Why a solo record? Why is it not a MercyMe record?

When you hear it, hopefully it will be clear why it is not MercyMe. I grew up listening to everything from Louis Prima to Willie Nelson, and it certainly shows on this project. Plus MercyMe demands too much in the studio like fruit only cut up in 2 inch triangles, Enya music always playing between takes and, whenever you address them, it has to start with “Your awesomness…” typical band stuff.

2. Why “Hymned Again?”

Because “Hymned-da-dee-doo-da” sounded funny.

3. What is your favorite moment on the record?

I would have to say the duet with Vince Gill on “Jesus Cares For Me.” Apparently he is trying to make it in the music biz, and was looking for a big break. I’ve got your back Vinnie. Keep your chin up! You sir are going places!

4. Is it true that my life will instantly have joy and meaning as soon as I purchase “Hymned Again?”

Well I can’t say 100% yes, but 4 out of 5 doctors have agreed that “Hymned Again” combined with flossing does make a substantial difference in one’s purpose for living.

5. Are the guys in the band cool with you using MercyMe’s blog to push your solo album?

Nope. In fact, I have been on the run for the past month tapping into the blog any chance I can get, for just a few seconds at a time, so that I cannot be traced. My goal is a “Hymned Again” blog takeover the week of the release…and then…take over THE WORLD!!!!!

6. What can we do to help in your world domination?

Assuming that asking everyone to wear a shirt that says “Bart is the King of Awesometown”, and from now on, greet each other by humming the first few bars of “I Can Only Imagine” is too much, I guess just buy “Hymned Again” the day it releases which is August 19th. Also contact your local Christian radio station and request the first single off “Hymned Again” titled “I Stand Amazed.”

So there you have it. Inquiring minds want to know! Please be sure to check out the brand new BartMillard.org to pre-order an autographed copy of “Hymned Again” today.

Thank you for your time and keep “Hymned” alive!

  1. Dear your awesomeness,
    Looking forward to the 2nd as the 1st was well… Awesome!
    Got to go pre order now!

  2. You know what is NOT awesome? Teasing me with a snippet of a song! I’d just come to terms with having to wait until August 19th, and now I’ve relapsed. Just for that, I nominate Mike to be the new King of Awesometown! (At least until I listen to the album. Then I’ll probably want you back, Bart.)

  3. By the way, I’ve pre-ordered, but the site said nothing about an autographed copy. I must have a piece of paper that your fingers touched…. It would be like awesomeness might seep into me if only I could have a piece of paper that you personally wrote upon, especially if it had the king of awesometown’s name scripted…. Wow. I cannot wait to have such an incredible gift arrive in my mailbox.

  4. Okay Cousin!!! – I loved hymned especially the song about mawmaw Ruby – the first time I heard it – I missed her all over again. But the preview for the next one with “What A Day that Will Be” – that was the song that MawMaw Ruby and I shared a passionate love for. We would sit on her front porch on Aileen Street and sing it late into the night. I remember sitting in her lap when I was young and hearing that voice sing it to me over and over. Thanks for including that one.
