Nashville, TN (November 6, 2019) - Billboard has exclusively premiered the music video for current and reigning American Music Award nominee, MercyMe's latest hit single, "Almost Home." With massive adds in its first week from key stations including WAY-FM, Sirius XM, KLTY Dallas, WRBS Baltimore, KLJY St Louis, KJNW Kansas City, KSOS Las Vegas, WGTS Washington, DC, and KFIS Portland, the track is the most added at Christian radio this week with a cumulative 50 stations reporting, and already Top 25 on Billboard's Christian Airplay Chart.
 
About the video's storyline featuring an astronaut, lead singer Bart Millard told Billboard, “It’s the idea of this guy, an astronaut just trying to live his life like a normal person, but not doing it super well with having to wear a spacesuit all the time.....we are trying to symbolize that all the people he came across in that video are there to lift him up and cheer him on and to say we’re not in this alone, and also to start pulling off the helmet and the mask, because it’s not needed.”
 
MercyMe also recently celebrated two new RIAA certifications just before playing in front of a packed crowd at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena. Members of MeryMe’s record label, FairTrade Services, met up with the band to present them with plaques commemorating two new achievements, as their debut album, Almost There, was RIAA Certified 4x Platinum and their 2018 single “Even If” was RIAA Certified Platinum.
 
Following back to back successful spring and fall 2019 Imagine Nation Tours, the MercyMe 20/20 Tour was also recently announced. Featuring Jeremy Camp and David Leonard, the tour will run February 13 through April 5, 2020. Hitting key markets including Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City and Minneapolis, the MercyMe 2020 Tour will support the band's upcoming 2020 studio project.

2019 has reaped both GRAMMY® and Billboard Music Award nominations for the current American Music Award winners, all following the box office shattering film I CAN ONLY IMAGINE inspired by frontman Bart Millard’s real-life story behind the beloved MercyMe song.
 
About MercyMe:
It continues to be a landmark time 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 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 eighth AMA nod. The group is the 2018 GMA Dove Award Winner for Artist Of The Year, and since their debut in 2001, GRAMMY® nominated, multiple American Music Award and Dove Award winners MercyMe have sold more than 9 million units in CD, single and DVD sales, garnered more than 47 No. 1 multi-format radio singles and four consecutive mainstream radio hits with “I Can Only Imagine,” (No. 4 AC/Top 25 on Top 40/Hot AC). MercyMe made history in 2014 as “I Can Only Imagine” surpassed 2 million digital downloads, making it the first song in Christian music to go platinum and double-platinum in the digital domain. The album containing the hit, Almost There, recently received 4x platinum certification from the RIAA. In 2009, Billboard named MercyMe's "Word Of God Speak" the No. 1 Song of The Decade and the group the No. 1 Artist of the Decade in both the Christian Songs and Christian AC Songs categories, recognizing them as one of the industry's most notable talents. They have sold out venues throughout the US and Canada, including Radio City Music Hall, and have appeared on the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, The Today Show, CBS This Morning, FOX New Channel's FOX & Friends, CNN, ABC News and in the pages of Entertainment Weekly, The New York Times, USA Today and more. MercyMe’s eighth studio album, the RIAA Certified Gold Welcome To The New, garnered two GRAMMY® nods and four radio hits. LIFER, their latest chart-topping, GMA Dove Award winning and GRAMMY® nominated album, includes the RIAA certified platinum, GRAMMY® nominated smash hit "Even If” which dominated the Billboard and Mediabase radio charts with a 19-week streak at No. 1.
