# 1 One Year Ago This Week:
“Only Jesus” – Casting Crowns
# 1 Two Years Ago This Week:
“The Gospel” – Ryan Stevenson
Building 429 climbs to # 1 with their debut smash on my chart “Fear No More” – the song that I kept singing along to loud and proud in my car while driving 2,990.5 miles between South Florida and North Texas. It’s a really good song – music and lyrics. It becomes my 40TH # 1 smash since this chart was resurrected from the ashes in February 2017.
Building 429 have been together for 20 years, but they never charted during the original “Salvation Era” of my chart from 2006 to 2010. They scored a couple of big hits during the early-2010s (during my chart’s 7-year hiatus) with “Where I Belong” and “We Won’t Be Shaken”. I discovered both of those tracks for the first time in 2017 as recurrent hits on K-LOVE.
Casting Crowns end an impressive 7-week reign atop my chart. They have now accumulated a total of 18 weeks at # 1 over the past 139 weeks. I believe that they are one of my top artists since February 2017, and I should be able to confirm that soon with a special chart I’ll be producing that will #CountUp my Top 10 artists of this current era of my chart.
This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again next weekend – 4 new entries on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest.
