MercyMe is an iconic pop Christian band with an incredible story. Growing up in Greenville, Texas, Bart Millard suffers physical and emotional abuse at the hands of his father, Arthur. When Arthur becomes terminally ill, he finds redemption by embracing his faith and rediscovering his love for his son. Years later, Bart's troubled childhood and mended relationship with his dad inspires him to write the hit song "I Can Only Imagine" as singer of the Christian band MercyMe.

Dennis Quaid portrayed Millers father in the movie I Can Only Imagine the story of Millers long route to fame in the music business. If you haven’t seen the movie, I highly recommend it. It’s truly inspiring. Amy Grant also appears in the movie.

MercyMe had scheduled a FREE concert appearance at the Amarillo Civic Center February 20 however that has been postponed to an unknown date.
