What is the name of your band again?
It is "Mercy Me". Because when I told my Memaw that we were starting a band, she was like "Mercy me, get a real job!" And I was like: "Oh, Memaw."
And the guys were like "Did she really say that?" and I was like "Yeah, we have to name the band Mercy Me". So we called it.

This movie was a fantastic telling of Bart's life and the beginning of MercyMe. Some scenes may be hard to watch because of the violence, but the redemption story that is told is beautiful. Highly recommend seeing this movie. Great acting, wonderful singing, and an amazing story.
