Every Monday night I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay. But due to the Memorial Day holiday yesterday I’m doing it on Tuesday. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday May 26TH 2019:
- “Born Again” – Austin French [# 3 last week / 13TH week on chart]
- “Church (Take Me Back)” – Cochren & Co. [4 / 14TH]
- “Resurrecting” – Elevation Worship [7 / 7TH]
- “Alive” – Big Daddy Weave [1 / 11TH]
- “Greatness Of Our God” – Newsboys [2 / 14TH]
- “Is He Worthy ?” – Chris Tomlin [6 / 8TH]
- “Confidence” – Sanctus Real [5 / 14TH]
- “Prize Worth Fighting For” – Jamie Kimmett [9 / 7TH]
- “Greater Things” – Mack Brock [10 / 2ND]
- “Scars” – I AM THEY [8 / 3RD]
# 1 One Year Ago This Week:
“The Way (New Horizon)” – Pat Barrett
# 1 Two Years Ago This Week:
“Live Like You’re Loved” – Hawk Nelson
Austin French scores his 2ND consecutive # 1 smash here on my chart, and he does it in a much different way than his debut smash “Freedom Hymn”. That was a short-lived (8-weeks overall) hit that debuted at # 3, went to # 2 a week later, and then ascended to # 1 in its 3RD week where it stayed for 4 weeks in a row. This time he spent 13 weeks to reach # 1 with “Born Again”, and it stopped at every chart position along the way except for # 8 and # 2.
♫ I was down on my luck. I was stuck. I was running ’round broken-hearted. I was sinking so fast. I couldn’t last. Falling apart. And You could’ve ran away. Leaving me there in my shame. Leaving me fighting my pain. But You made a better way. ♫
Great lyrics for a great song. It’s the theme song for my fantastic journey !
Summer has begun, and I’m continuing my annual tradition. I’ll be crunching the numbers all summer long, and on a special compilation chart on Tuesday September 03RD I’ll present my Top 10 hits of the Summer Of 2019 based on the 15 weekly charts between now and then.
This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again next weekend (which starts in just 48 hours) – 4 new entries on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest.
