Bryan Duncan's Solo Career:
Opting to stay with Light Records, Duncan recorded two albums before moving to Myrrh for two more releases. In 1989 he switched to Word Records, releasing two more albums before his 1993 release, Mercy, made his shining star go super nova! Five number one hits from Mercy with another five number ones in a row made Bryan Duncan a household name in Christian music.
Over the next 10 years of his contract with Word, Bryan was playing an average of 200 shows a year and getting extremely burned out, fighting addiction and depression on every front.
