Formed up in 1994 out of Edmond, Oklahoma, the five-man band (lead vocalist Bart Millard, percussionist Robby Shaffer, bassist Nathan Cochran and guitarists Michael Scheuchzer and Barry Graul) has first gained mainstream recognition with the crossover single, “I Can Only Imagine” which elevated their debut album, “Almost There,” to triple platinum certification.
Since then, the group has released eight additional studio albums (six of which have been certified gold) and a greatest hits album.
