David Crowder and his band score my new # 1 smash this week with their simple yet catchy track “Good God Almighty”. It’s Crowder’s 3RD # 1 smash on my chart following “Forgiven” in May 2017 and “Red Letters” in March 2019. A couple of years ago I saw Crowder LIVE in concert for the first time. He and his band opened for my favorite band MercyMe in Tampa. Crowder put on a rockin’ set that had his longtime fans enjoying the experience – and newer fans like myself singing along and moving to the music.
3 new entries this week are led by newcomers Brian & Jenn Johnson of Bethel Music. Their “God Of Revival” is emerging at U.S. Christian Radio where it’s currently BUBBLING UNDER just outside the Top 30. Here’s an extended version of the song featuring Phil Wickham who cowrote it with Brian Johnson. It was recorded LIVE at a church conference in 2019:
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.
