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 August 02ND 2020:

|4||7||7||There Was Jesus||Zach Williams Ft. Dolly Parton|
|5||4||16||Keep Me In The Moment||Jeremy Camp|

This week marks a milestone for my weekly chart. With this 181ST chart week it surpasses the complete 180-week run of the “Salvation Era” of my chart that began on August 27TH 2006 and ended on January 31ST 2010 (3 years and 5 months).
The “Salvation Era” began on the Sunday after my Lord + Savior Jesus Christ rescued and saved me almost 14 years ago. He used music to lift me out of the pit of despair – out of the mud and the mire. He gave me a new song to sing – a hymn of praise to our God. This chart – already in its 21ST year of existence at the time – immediately flipped from Mainstream Top 40 – to Christian Top 40. It lasted 180 weeks before waning. (This chart went on a 7-year hiatus after that.)
This current “Resurrection Era” (or “K-LOVE Era”) continues on into the future. I enjoy sharing the music each week that I’m currently singing along to and dancing to in praise and worship to my God. I sing and dance for Him.
Zach Williams scores his 5TH consecutive Top 5 smash over the past 3 years with his latest “There Was Jesus” – a duet with Dolly Parton that the two recorded together in the studio last Summer. It looks like it’s headed to # 1 nationally at U.S. Christian radio. It’s already # 1 at small-market stations.
Colton Dixon returns to my chart for the first time in nearly 3½ years, and it’s already his highest-charting hit ever, as “Miracles” makes its debut at # 7. Here’s the official music video of this catchy track:
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.
