2. Humble Beginnings
They might be one of the top Christian music acts in the world today but everyone has to start somewhere! In the beginning they boys took up resident in an abandoned daycare to practice and record music AND live in at the same time! Thankfully that was only for a season…

While we know MercyMe for all of their hit songs like “I Can Only Imagine”, “Flawless”, and “Greater” they also are famous on the internet for OTHER people’s songs! The Cover Tune Grab Bag started as a way to kill time behind the scenes of the Rock and Worship Roadshow has turned into an online goldmine!
