Zach Williams sings my new favorite song on the radio this week, as his “Rescue Story” becomes my 44TH # 1 smash in the nearly 3 years of this current era of my chart. It’s Zach’s 4TH Top 5 hit in a row (since “Old Church Choir”), and this is his 46TH week on my chart (combined). I love Zach’s personal “Rescue Story”. I’ve seen him in concert a couple of times, and he shares his testimony with the audience in-between his songs about his Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.
Michael W. Smith is back with his 5TH hit on my chart over the past 29 years. He hit with a trio of songs that crossed-over onto many secular Top 40 radio stations back in 1991 and 1992 with “Place In This World”, “For You”, and “I Will Be Here For You”. He also hit with “Surrounded” in September 2018. I really like this song a lot ! K-LOVE added it to their active playlist a couple of weeks ago, and I think that it’s caught-on quickly with us – their listeners – because they are playing it often throughout the day and night.
With 3 new entries this week we lost 3 songs including a pair of # 1s – “Unstoppable God” (Sanctus Real) and “Nobody (But Jesus)” (Casting Crowns Ft. Matthew West). The latter returns in 3 weeks and a day when I present my Top 20 hits of the past 3 years on a special Tuesday blog post on the day after Presidents’ Day here in the U.S. (That marks the 3RD anniversary of the resurrection of my weekly hit music chart.)
This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again next weekend – with 4 new entries on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest.
