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:

2017 – “Word Of Life” – Jeremy Camp
MATTHEW WEST – Yesterday on #SundayScripture I revealed that I saw him LIVE in concert in Southwest Florida this past Friday night. He opened for Casting Crowns; although, he is worthy of being a headlining act on his own with a catalog of nearly 20 years of hits. I’ve only known him as a singer for the past 245 weeks, but he’s done amazing over these past 4 years and 8 months. “What If” is his 6TH hit, and 4TH # 1 smash. (His other 2 hits peaked at # 2.) This is his 124TH week on my chart – and 19TH week at # 1. I got to sing and dance (at my floor seat) to “What If” as Matthew sang it LIVE as the 3RD hit of his set.
CHART BUSTING just outside of my Top 10 this week is the new one from MercyMe. It’s “On Our Way”, and it was intended for Sam Wesley, as he cowrote it. But his dad – Bart Millard – loved it so much that he wanted it to be a MercyMe song. So he let Sam sing on the song and receive credit (and compensation) for doing so. Now it’s a Christian Top 20 hit from coast to coast, and it feels so good with its uplifting sound. Sam performed it with his dad and the MercyMe band LIVE in concert, and our Tampa audience was dancing along.
