Every Monday I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay from the previous week. It’s the continuation of a weekly hobby that goes back 40+ years. Here’s this week’s chart:

# 1 This Week In:
2020 – “Rise Up (Lazarus)” – Cain
2019 – “Fear No More” – Building 429
2018 – “Only Jesus” – Casting Crowns
2017 – “The Gospel” – Ryan Stevenson
JEREMY’S 6TH – Jeremy Camp scores his 6TH hit on my chart since 2017, as “When You Speak” finally enters after a long delay. It’s been playing on the radio every day for the past 3 months, but (honesty alert here) – I didn’t really like it all that much. I thought it paled in comparison with his previous 3 long-lasting hits – “Dead Man Walking” (25 weeks on my chart), “Keep Me In The Moment” (20 weeks), and “Out Of My Hands” (18 weeks). The former 2 were # 1 hits, and the latter peaked at # 2 for 3 weeks. “When You Speak” likely won’t last that long or peak that high, but the fact that I like it enough now for it to debut at # 6 is impressive. We’ll see how it goes.
ON THE RADIO – With K-LOVE in seasonal pledge drive mode this past week I sampled more of WGTS out of the Washington D.C. area (sounds good), and I also added The Message on SiriusXM. They play more new music and fewer recurrents on The Message. (The new Sanctus Real song at # 7 is currently in heavy rotation on The Message.) This upcoming week I’ll be checking-out The Joy FM.
This blog is # 37 worldwide on the Top 80 Christian Music Blogs and Websites in 2021 chart. Thank You for including us Feedspot !
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.
