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 – this week’s chart:

It is the 4TH anniversary of the unexpected start of the 3RD era of my weekly hit music chart. At the start of 2010 the longest consecutive era of my chart came to a slow and bitter end after a little over 14 years. Fast forward to almost exactly 7 years later, and I attended my 2ND TobyMac concert up in Tallahassee Florida. If you’ve ever been to a TobyMac concert then you know that while Toby is the headliner – there are 4 or 5 other veteran and emerging artists on the bill that put on great sets. A typical TobyMac concert is about a 4-hour experience, and it’s hard to wind down and go to sleep after all of that energy in the arena. That 4-hour experience in 2017 was one part of the resurrection of my chart that weekend. The other part is that I discovered K-LOVE – the national Christian hit music radio station that weekend. I’ve been listening nonstop ever since.
TobyMac’s “Love Broke Thru” was my # 1 smash on that very first chart back after 7 years. Exactly 2 years later We Are Messengers were at # 1 with their smash “Maybe It’s OK”. That occurred at my 3RD TobyMac show.
Last night I was at my 4TH TobyMac show at the BB&T Center in Sunrise Florida, and We Are Messengers were 1 of the veteran artists on the bill. I’ll write all about it on a future Thursday post here on my blog.
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.
