Episode 12 of the Mark Price For Three Podcast is a special one.
Our guest today is the Lead Singer of the group MercyMe, Bart Millard.
We cover a lot of ground in this episode from hoops to Bart’s favorite songs. Here’s a little more about Bart.
He has released two solo albums: Hymned, No. 1, in 2005 and Hymned Again in 2008.
He received a solo Grammy nomination in the category of Best Southern, Country, or Bluegrass Gospel Album for the latter album.
In high school, Millard wanted to become a football player, a dream which ended when he injured both ankles at a high school football game. As a result, Millard took choir as an elective.
Millard was called the Best Male Vocalist by Christianity Today in 2005, for his work on his solo album Hymned No. 1 and for The Christmas Sessions album with his band MercyMe. Millard’s Hymned No. 1 was called the No. 9 best album of the year by Christianity Today in 2005.
