GRAMMY Award-winning music group Maverick City Music has recorded and released their own version of the Christmas classic "Mary Did You Know?" The song encourages contemplation of the relationship between Mary and her son,Jesus.
With lyrics written by Mark Lowry and music written by Buddy Greene, "Mary Did You Know" was originally recorded by Christian recording artist Michael English on his self-titled debut solo album in 1991. At the time, English and Lowry were members of the Gaither Vocal Band, and Greene was touring with them. The song reached Number 6 on CCM Magazine's Adult Contemporary Chart. Lowry would record the song several times himself, most notably with the Gaither Vocal Band on their 1998 Christmas album, Still the Greatest Story Ever Told. The song has since gone on to become a modern Christmas classic, recorded by hundreds of artists over the years, across multiple genres.
Maverick City Music is a multi-racial, multicultural, genre-bending group that brings hope to all, regardless of whatever race, gender preference and faith. Launched in 2018 after hosting seventeen songwriting camps, which brought together more than 100 Christian artists and songwriters, Maverick City Music is a group comprised of breakout artists including Tony Brown, Jonathan Jay, Chandler Moore, Brandon Lake, Naomi Raine, MJ George, Harold Brown, Lizzie Morgan and Aaron Moses. Recently winning their first GRAMMY for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album and completing a historic televised performance on the show, Maverick City Music was also nominated across four categories at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards earlier this year.
