The popular "Rock & Worship Roadshow," has announced the 2016 line-up and once again, MercyMe, the band that founded the Roadshow, won't be appearing.

Back in 2014, the first year that they didn't appear, Bart Millard explained their absence om a press release, saying, "The Roadshow still remains our vision and baby, but we thought it was time for us to take a year off and allow other great bands like Skillet and Third Day to join in the fun.

We know fans will continue to support The Roadshow with these great artists. And, don’t worry, we’ll be back on the tour again." And they were -- last year, Bart and the guys were back on the Roadshow stage.

Much like in 2014, there won't be a shortage of great music at all. In 2016, Newsboys, Jeremy Camp, Mandisa, Phil Wickham, Family Force 5, Audio Adrenaline, Danny Gokey, Citizen Way and Shawn Groves are all appearing to deliver a wonderful night of music and fellowship. (Danny Gokey and Citizen Way will be rockin' the pre-show party!)
