MercyMe’s “The Hurt & The Healer” Dominates at Radio

Now Spending One Month in No. 1 Spot on Billboard’s Christian AC Chart 

Nashville, TN, June 28, 2012: Proving their unparalleled ability to connect with listeners, Grammy-nominated, American Music Award and multiple GMA Dove Award winners MercyMe have been standing tall in the top spot on the Christian AC chart for a solid month now, with their multi-week No. 1 smash “The Hurt & The Healer.”

As the lead single from the studio album of the same name–the band’s seventh project–the song has also snagged the No. 1 position for multiple weeks on other charts including AC Indicator, National Christian Audience and the Soft/AC Inspo chart. In addition, MercyMe have released a live performance video of the track, filmed during a recent tour stop.

This success at radio caps off the month following the release of their newest album via Fair Trade Services, which was met with overwhelming critical praise, including the following:

“With all of their success, MercyMe might have thought getting ‘comfortable’ would be the easy route. But this latest album shows that the band continues to push itself to greatness. They tackle difficult subjects and stretch themselves musically…this is their best project to date.” – CCM Magazine

“All the way around, Healer is sure to please, with enough diversity and pathos to continue to provide encouragement and inspiration to the fans who have made MercyMe one of the most beloved acts in Christian music.” – Crosswalk

“Full of heart, melody, and sure to find a massive radio time, The Hurt and the Healer stays the course. The strength of one of the most eminent bands in Christian music has always been their ability to have fun. MercyMe don’t take themselves too seriously, leaving them able to provide musical insight for full radio-friendly impact.” – Worship Leader

As the band celebrates their new album, MercyMe will visit markets across the country throughout the summer. More information about tour dates can be found on MercyMe’s official site.

  1. I just wanted to say to God be the glory on all the songs on this album but the one that was especially God inspiring to me was Take the Time with Bear Rhinehart all I can say is it was awesome you speak volumes by allowing God to work with the broken parts of individual lives to help personalize your songs and make them even more powerful than ever! Bart I’m proud of you for listening to God’s heart and allowing Bear Rnehart use his talents with the band continue to allow God to speak through you you all. God continues good works through you all because you lay it all at his feet first and as you see God is blessing the band in abundance through your brokedness!

  2. I couldn’t have said it better Jill.
    I have been cranking this album in my car ever since buying it a few weeks ago. And that song with Bear on it is definitely one of my favorites. And like you said, the lyrics of the song minister really powerfully.
