MercyMe's "I Can Only Imagine" has been a staple in Christian music for many years, making waves on Christian as well as secular charts (the song still holds a top 10 place on iTunes' Christian & Gospel charts). In March of 2018, audiences will have the chance to see the story behind the popular song on the big screen. The movie, simply titled I Can Only Imagine, will follow the story of lead singer Bart Millard through some of the real-life experiences that inspired the classic song.

MercyMe recently shared a link to the movie's first teaser trailer along with the theatrical release date of March 16, 2018. Directed by the Erwin Brothers, the same film makers who brought us October Baby and Mom's Night Out, the movie's talented cast includes Dennis Quaid as Bart's dad, Broadway performer and actor J. Michael Finley as Bart, and country music singer Trace Adkins as "Brickell."
 


In addition to the movie news, Bart Millard was recently nominated for songwriter of the year for the 48th GMA Dove Awards. MercyMe, who will be performing live at the awards this October, was also nominated for "Artist of the Year," "Song of the Year" ("Even If"), "Pop/Contemporty Song" ("Even If"), and "Pop/Contemporary Album" for their newest release Lifer.
