My Top 10 Hits – Week 295

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 nearly 45 years. Here’s this week’s chart – for the week ending Sunday October 09TH 2022 – the 295TH week of this current era that began on Presidents’ Day Weekend of 2017:

1 1 9 Good Morning Mercy
[4TH week @ # 1]
Jason Crabb
2 2 8 New Creation Mac Powell
3 3 16 Thank God For Sunday Morning Cochren & Co.
4 4 7 Build A Boat Colton Dixon
5 6 5 Miracle Power We The Kingdom
6 10 2 Ain’t Nobody Cody Carnes
7 5 17 Hold You Tight Dan Bremnes
8 9 2 Love Me Like I Am for King & Country Ft. Jordin Sparks
9 7 5 God Is In This Story Katy Nichole Ft. Big Daddy Weave
10 8 5 Perfectly Loved Rachael Lampa Ft. TobyMac

# 1 This Week In:
2021 – “What If” – Matthew West
2020 – “God So Loved” – We The Kingdom
2019 – “Nobody (But Jesus)” – Casting Crowns Ft. Matthew West
2018 – “Only Jesus” – Casting Crowns
2017 – “The Gospel” – Ryan Stevenson

JASON, MAC, & MICHAEL – As in Crabb, Powell, & Cochren. (Sounds like a law firm.) The trio hold firm at # 1, # 2, and # 3 this week for the 4TH week in a row. All 3 tracks sound great on the radio, and they deserve to have their volume cranked-up when they play. A casual observer to my chart may wonder when country music took over. There is definitely a country music influence to my chart nowadays, but then country and gospel music have been influencing each other for almost 70 years – since the modern rock-and-roll era began. See #Elvis.

CHARTBUSTING – Sitting just outside of my Top 10 this week (and getting ready to jump in) is the # 1 smash nationwide at U.S. Christian radio – Ben Fuller’s “Who I Am”. It’s a former # 1 smash at small-market stations, and it’s likely the next # 1 smash at large-market stations. It’s been playing since May, and it’s been available since March. And YES – it sounds like a country song. Ben Fuller actually moved to Nashville to pursue a country music career. But then Christ rescued and saved Him, and he pursued His Lord & Savior instead. He sings about it in “Who I Am”:

This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again with the new weekend – and 4 new entries – known as #TravelThursday, #RetroFriday#SundayScripture, and #Top10Monday.
