Multi-platinum selling MercyMe took part in today’s historic moment as the Orrin G. Hatch—Bob Goodlatte Music Modernization Act was signed into law.
“It’s a history making day for all of our fellow music creatives as the Music Modernization Act was signed. We were honored to bear witness to the signing of this game changing legislation. We thank Congress and the President, but also the many songwriters, artists, composers, industry groups and more who united to safeguard music for years to come.” – MercyMe
It continues to be a landmark year for the multi-platinum selling MercyMe. 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 also released this year followed by the unveiling of I Can Only Imagine – The Very Best Of MercyMe. MercyMe was recently named Top Christian Artist at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, was the top winner at the fan-fueled K-LOVE Fan Awards including a win for Artist of the Year and just received their seventh AMA nod. The group is the current GMA Dove Award Winner for Artist Of The Year.
