With eight GMA Dove Awards and a host of other accolades under their collective belts, Christian supergroup MercyMe seems to just get more humble and grounded every time we speak to them – even as the hit records continue to roll in, like with their latest Christmas release “MercyMe, It’s Christmas.”
We caught up with the guys at a recent event where we got their thoughts on their music, Disney memories and their Night-of-Joy-history-making performance at this year’s event. (This year will see them become the artist with the most performances in the event’s history.)
Night of Joy at Walt Disney World Resort is enhancing its offerings, with the concerts being held for the first time ever at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. This year’s artists represent one of the best lineups in all of Contemporary Christian Music with 18 top performers and groups.
