Why is the Single a Keeper?

Originally released in 1999, “I Can Only Imagine” remains to be on the top list of the most-played Christian & Inspirational songs. Conceived in Millard’s heart, the track continues to lead millions of orphaned souls to the embrace of the heavenly Father. What’s the magic behind it? It’s honest. Honest songs are always sure-winner for fans. Most producers might disagree, but that’s the plain truth about today’ feature.

In the movie, we’ve seen how Millard struggled to do away his pain by leaving his father. His manager (played by Adkins), urged him to “stop running” and to instead use the “pain” to build himself up. That turned out to be sound advice for Millard. God opened more doors of opportunities for him through the conception of his song.

Trace Adkins Thoughts on the Film, “I Can Only Imagine”

In CBN’s interview, Adkins admitted that as much as he was familiar with Mercy Me’s hit, he didn’t know the story behind it. But when he read the movie script, Adkins signed up for it and did portray the role well of the band’s manager.

He further stated that the part of the film when the song’s played is something that will remain in him for life.

“Nobody is beyond redemption.”
