This Greenville, TX band has been cranking out number 1 hits and gold and platinum albums for almost 20 years. Their early mega-hit I Can Only Imagine did more than launch their careers - it changed the Christian music culture.

On the Upcoming Album: “At 41-years-old, I feel like I am just starting to grasp who I am in Christ,” says lead singer Bart Millard. “I grew up in a somewhat legalistic environment where the harder you try, the better God likes you. It was about two years ago a dear friend of mine reminded me I cannot do enough great things to make Christ love me more than He already does. Not to mention, I can’t sabotage this relationship and be taken from His hand. In other words, all the work was truly done on the cross and I cannot mess it up! This is not a new season in my life, it is my life! Everything has changed from this point on, and I want to tell this to anyone who will listen and be the first to welcome them to the new!”

Funny: The group’s name originated during Bart’s time as a youth ministry intern in Florida. Bart’s grandmother exclaimed, “Well mercy me, why don’t you get a real job?”

Little Known Fact: Bart Millard was a footballer in high school until he sustained an injury to his ankle. He took up choir in school as an elective and never stopped singing.

Album: Welcome To The New (April 2014)
