~ MercyMe Announces the ‘Together Again Tour’ with Crowder and Andrew Ripp in October ~
GRAMMY®-nominated band MercyMe has announced the line-up and routing for their fall “Together Again Tour.” Joining the band to hit 16 cities in October are past tourmates Crowder and Andrew Ripp. Tickets go on sale May 12th in most markets at mercyme.org.
This spring the band has been touring across the U.S. in support of their latest best selling project, ALWAYS ONLY JESUS, which feature’s the No. 1 hit “Then Christ Came” and their new single, “To Not Worship You,” coming May 19th.
About the song, lead singer Bart Millard said, “I think with this song, I better realize what being still and knowing that He is God means. A lot of times when we have doubt or we’re questioning stuff, I think ultimately it’s because we’re not stopping and remembering who God really is. When you take the time to remember who God is, then it’s easy to ask, ‘who are we to not worship him?’”
Who Is Mercy Me?
It continues to be a landmark time for the multi-platinum selling, GRAMMY® nominated, multiple American Music Award, Billboard Music Award and Dove Award winners MercyMe. They were recently named Billboard’s Top Christian Artist of the 2010 decade, and in 2020 received their eighth American Music Award nomination.
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). In conjunction with the movie release, Millard penned a memoir and the band released a collection of hits titled I Can Only Imagine – The Very Best Of MercyMe.
