Did you catch it? Did you happen to see MercyMe perform their hit song, "Say I Won't" on TBN's Huckabee Show?
In case you missed it, we have that performance right here!
MercyMe's performance on Huckabee was made to promote the release of their latest album, inhale (exhale), which hit retail outlets on April 30th.
“It was two years and one month to the day that we started writing for this new record until we finally finished,” Bart Millard says. “‘Almost Home,’ which is the first single, will be out a year and a half before the record releases. We would have had it done a year or so ago, but when the pandemic hit, it slowed everything down. We practically re-wrote the album two or three different times.”
The band began writing and wound up with more than 40 songs. Millard admits having the new record to focus on offered a welcome sense of purpose during pandemic life, and the opportunity to inhale (exhale). “One reason we’re calling the album inhale (exhale) is we all just want to sit back for a second and take a deep breath and be like, ‘Okay this is what matters. This is what matters,’" Millard concludes. "I’m grateful that messages like that seem to resonate with people on a consistent basis because there is hope in that, and if they can still get fired up about what’s to come then not all is lost.”
