Christian Rock Sensation, MercyMe, will host a PRESS ONLY REHERSAL EVENT at 11:45-1 on Wednesday, February 6th at McCann Steel/Axiom Studios/Steel Mill at 10 Quality Way in Nashville, TN 37207, to share their upcoming tour, The Rock & Worship Roadshow. This divine journey spreads its wings on February 7th at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, WI and continues to 20 concert arena with nine blessed contemporary Christian artists.

Joining MercyMe on this sanctified tour is gold album and Grammy nominated artist
Jeremy Camp along with Tedashii, Kutless, Family Force Five, Luminate, Rhett Walker Band, Adam Cappa, and Tim Timmons. The biblical melodies and lyrics shared on this tour will make you rise to your feet, confirming that music, to and for God, is the sole focus of the group.

Grammy-nominated, American Music Award and multiple GMA Dove Award winners MercyMe will be a main feature of the Rock and Worship Roadshow. Their seventh studio album, The Hurt & The Healer, has hit the Billboard 200 top albums chart, landing at No. 7. MercyMe formed in 1994 and first gained mainstream recognition with the crossover single, “I Can Only Imagine” which elevated their debut album, Almost There, to double platinum certification. Since then, the group has released six additional studio albums (four of which have been certified gold) and a greatest hits album, 10. The group has also had 13 consecutive top 5 singles on the Billboard Christian Songs chart, with 7 of them reaching No. 1. MercyMe has won 8 Dove Awards and has had numerous Grammy Award nominations. The band consists of vocalist Bart Millard, keyboardist James Bryson, percussionist Robby Shaffer, bassist Nathan Cochran and guitarists Michael Scheuchzer and Barry Graul.

The spiritual journey will also be captured on film by Nashville’s own, MountView Creative, who will join the tour to give audiences an in-depth vision into what a worshipful life on the road is like, and will be doing so with some of the latest technology in filmmaking. MountView’s crew will document the devotion behind the artists, with cameras rolling, to capture all aspects of this major tour grounded in worship.

“From catering to lighting rigs, audio load in and life on a bus…it takes a village to pull everything together for an artist to walk on stage and put on an amazing show for fans,” says MountView Creative Executive producer Ryan Smith,. “We are thrilled to be putting together the first ever feature length Christian documentary that will give a behind the scenes look at a major tour.”
