While on tour last year, the great city of Roanoke, Virginia declared October 11th, MercyMe day. We were so excited thinking that every October 11th would be MercyMe day, only to realize that MercyMe day was just on October 11th of the year 2007.
They gave us the official certificate during the concert around 9:00 PM. Our set finished an hour and a half later at around 10:30PM. In other words, by the time we knew we were given our own “day” we had about an hour and a half ’til midnight to enjoy it. I think it is safe to say it was the greatest hour and a half of our lives.
