My Top 10 Hits – Week 167

Every Monday I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay. It’s the continuation of a weekly hobby that goes back 40+ years. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday April 26TH 2020:

  1. “Almost Home” – MercyMe [# 1 last week / 19TH week on chart]
  2. “Alive And Breathing” – Matt Maher [2 / 7TH]
  3. “I Will Fear No More” – The Afters [3 / 14TH]
  4. “(I’ll) Never Let You Down” – Hawk Nelson Ft. Hunter & Tara [4 / 5TH]
  5. “Your Name Is Power” – Rend Collective [6 / 16TH]
  6. “See A Victory” – Elevation Worship [5 / 12TH]
  7. “The God Who Stays” – Matthew West [7 / 23RD]
  8. “Waymaker” – Michael W. Smith Ft. Vanessa Campagna [8 / 14TH]
  9. “Keep Me In The Moment” – Jeremy Camp [10 / 2ND]
  10. “Great Things” – Phil Wickham [- / 1ST]

# 1 This Week In:
2019 – “Alive” – Big Daddy Weave
2018 – “Freedom Hymn” – Austin French
2017 – “Even If” – MercyMe

Phil Wickham returns to my chart for what appears to be an annual tradition; although, he’s a little bit early this year. His “Living Hope” was a Summer of 2018 hit, and his “Till I Found You” was a # 2 hit during the Summer of 2019. Now he’s back with his Summer of 2020 hit – a couple of months early. It’s “Great Things”, and it’s the lead-off track of his Summer of 2018 studio album, “Living Hope”. All 3 hits mentioned were actually released as promotional digital singles several weeks apart just prior to the album’s release, but their respective releases to Christian radio have been staggered since then.

Phil has used the upbeat “Great Things” to kickoff Praise & Worship at various churches where he led the music.

This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again this upcoming weekend – with 4 new entries on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest.
