Nashville, TN.... December 16, 2021 - Multi-platinum, award-winning band MercyMe is celebrating the RIAA Gold Certification of their 2017 album LIFER. Fair Trade Services' Founder/President Jeff Moseley and Senior VP of Marketing & Promo Dan Michaels, along with Scott Brickell and Kim Davis from the band's management, BrickHouse Entertainment, recently presented commemorative plaques to band members Bart Millard and Mike Scheuchzer at their studio outside Nashville. This is MercyMe's seventh RIAA Certified Gold album, joining 6 previous Gold Certifications and one Triple Platinum Certification. To note, all three singles from Lifer ("Even If," "Grace Got You," and "Best News Ever") hit #1 on Billboard National Christian Audience, AC Monitored, and AC Indicator charts. 
Closing out 2021, MercyMe's latest best-selling album, inhale(exhale) and more landed on several Billboard year-end charts, along with many previous albums as well. As a band, they garnered Top Christian Artists (#8), Top Duo/Group (#4), Top Christian Albums Artists (#8), Top Christian Digital Songs Artists (#4) and Hot Christian Songs Artists (#16) positions. Their current single “On Our Way” is Top 10 on the Billboard National Christian Audience chart and climbing. 
For a limited time, MercyMe is excited to have launched co-branded Topps trading baseball card with Music City Baseball and the Nashville Stars. Available now through January 1, 2022, through Music City Baseball's dedicated partnership with the Negro League Baseball Museum, 50% of all proceeds will be donated to the museum.

Millard, who grew up in Texas as a Rangers fan, is one of Music City Baseball's trusted Music Advisors working to help bring Major League Baseball to Nashville.

 "I love the fact that it's Music City and I love the fact that there's an advisory board of musicians behind this," said Millard. "I think it's crucial. One thing that sets us apart from other cities is the people advocating for this team. I've never seen a city that's more certain of its identity and what it's capable of. And people get it. It's already a destination place for so many people and to add baseball to that? It's a no-brainer."

As a musician who grew up as a passionate baseball fan, Millard was an ideal partner with the group because he understands the beauty of baseball. "We are proud to have Millard on our team. He already has shown enthusiasm in our efforts and provides valuable insight in our overarching goals as we continue to create community excitement over our initiative," said John Loar, Managing Director of Music City Baseball. 
MercyMe will continue their inhale (exhale) tour into the new year. Tickets to the newly announced spring 2022 leg are on sale now at The 2022 tour will feature Rend Collective and special guest Andrew Ripp.
