Band to attend Sunday's 60th Grammy Awards with 2 nominations
MercyMe's landmark album "Almost There" has been RIAA-certified Triple-Platinum (3 million albums sold). In addition, their most recent No. 1 hit single, "Even If," was certified Gold (500,000 singles sold).
The multiplatinum-selling band will attend Sunday's 60th Grammy Awards, where "Even If" is up for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song. Their latest chart-topping album, "Lifer," is a contender for Best Contemporary Christian Album.
"In the span of MercyMe's 23-year career, I never would have guessed that we would be celebrating our first hit along with our most recent hit," singer Bart Millard said. "We are eternally grateful for all of the support we receive."
The anticipated new movie, "I Can Only Imagine," a true story based on the life of Millard - who wrote the mega-hit song "I Can Only Imagine" after the loss of his father to cancer - opens in theaters March 16. A new theatrical trailer has been released following 40 million people viewing the teaser trailer.
Carrying the same name, Millard's first memoir is available for pre-order now and on-sale Feb. 13. The book chronicles the unexpected journey of his life and the divine inspiration behind the song, delivering a message of hope to those who seek reassurance in the face of despair. 
The "MercyMe Live" Tour will unite the band with Tenth Avenue North alongside Tim Timmons for a three-month stretch where the lineup will visit more than 20 markets, including Dallas, Nashville, Minneapolis and Atlanta.
