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 May 17TH 2020:
- “I Will Fear No More” – The Afters [# 2 last week / 17TH week on chart]
- “Alive And Breathing” – Matt Maher [3 / 10TH]
- “Almost Home” – MercyMe [# 1 / 22ND]
- “Keep Me In The Moment” – Jeremy Camp [6 / 5TH]
- “Love” – We Are Messengers [5 / 3RD]
- “Great Things” – Phil Wickham [7 / 4TH]
- “(I’ll) Never Let You Down” – Hawk Nelson Ft. Hunter & Tara [4 / 8TH]
- “Amadeo (Still My God)” – Ryan Stevenson [- / 1ST]
- “No Impossible With You” – I AM THEY [- / 1ST]
- “The Father’s House” – Cory Asbury [- / 1ST]
# 1 This Week In:
2019 – “Alive” – Big Daddy Weave
2018 – “The Way (New Horizon)” – Pat Barrett
2017 – “Oh My Soul” – Casting Crowns
I have a new # 1 smash this week, as MercyMe pull back from the top spot after 12 weeks. The Afters score with their 2ND consecutive # 1 smash in the timely “I Will Fear No More”. It’s their follow-up to “Well Done” – which was my Christmas # 1 in 2018. Going back even further The Afters scored a # 4 hit on my chart in January 2008 with “Never Going Back To OK”. While that song was tracking Hawk Nelson were spending 10 weeks in a row at # 1 with “Friend Like That”. #RETRO
Currently # 1 on Christian Top 40 radio from coast to coast is Cory Asbury’s “The Father’s House”. It finally reaches my chart after hovering just below my Top 10 for the past several weeks.
This is my final weekly chart prior to summertime. As I’ve done for many years now I’ll be tracking in greater detail every song that’s on my chart during the 16 weeks of summer starting on Memorial Day Weekend and ending on Labor Day Weekend here in the U.S. (Normally it’s 15 weeks, but Memorial Day occurs on its earliest possible date this year while Labor Day occurs on its latest possible date. That gives us an extra week of summer.) On the Tuesday after Labor Day I’ll publish a special chart featuring my Top 10 hits of the entire summer.
This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again this upcoming weekend – with 5 new entries on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, Monday, and a special post on Tuesday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest.
