MercyMe emerged in the contemporary Christian music scene in 1994. The band member lineup is composed of singer and main songwriter Bart Millard, Nathan Cochran on bass, Michael John Scheuchzer and Barry Graul on guitars, and Robin Troy "Robby" Shaffer on drums. The band released a couple of independent albums before landing a record deal with INO Records. In 2001, MercyMe dropped their major-label debut, Almost There, featuring the crossover hit, “I Can Only Imagine.” The track made waves on Christian radio stations and topped the local charts. The song also became a sleeper hit, entering the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 2002. Sixteen years later, the song topped the Christian Songs chart after being adapted into a film.
After the success of their major-label debut, MercyMe continued to record and release chart-topping albums. The band consecutively topped the US Christian Albums chart seven times. The band’s latest album, Inhale (Exhale), was released in April 2021, peaking at number 3 on the US Christian Albums chart.
MercyMe has won numerous awards, including a Billboard Music Award for Top Christian Artist, eight GMA Dove Music Awards, two ASCAP Awards, and two American Music Awards.
