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 December 18TH 2022 – the 305TH week of this current era that began on Presidents’ Day Weekend of 2017:
|TW||LW||WKS||SONG TITLE||ARTIST / SITE|
|1||1||9||Who I Am
[2ND week @ # 1]
|2||3||12||Love Me Like I Am||for King & Country Ft. Jordin Sparks|
|3||4||15||Miracle Power||We The Kingdom|
|4||2||12||Ain’t Nobody||Cody Carnes|
|5||5||9||Then Christ Came||MercyMe|
|6||7||18||New Creation||Mac Powell|
|7||6||19||Good Morning Mercy||Jason Crabb|
|8||10||3||I See Grace||Micah Tyler|
|9||–||1||My Story Your Glory||Matthew West|
|10||–||1||First Things First||Consumed By Fire|
# 1 This Week In:
2021 – “Weary Traveler” – Jordan St. Cyr
2020 – “Every Step Of The Way” – Cade Thompson
2019 – “Dead Man Walking” – Jeremy Camp
2018 – “Well Done” – The Afters
2017 – “Control (Somehow You Want Me)” – Tenth Avenue North
UPS & DOWNS – On my penultimate chart of 2022 there are a lot little moves up and down – including for King & Country moving up to # 2 for just the 2ND time ever, and first time in 3 years – since “Burn The Ships”. Also – We The Kingdom’s “Miracle Power” – continues its amazing resurgence – up to # 3 this week after dropping to # 10 at the end of October following a previous peak at # 4.
FIRST THINGS FIRST – I love a debut artist – especially one who I’ve never heard of before. I started hearing this song on K-LOVE a couple of weeks ago, and I’ve liked it from the start – its melody and its lyrics. Consumed By Fire are the Ward Brothers – Caleb (age 29), Jordan (33), and Joshua (37). They grew up in northeastern Oklahoma in their parents’ church – eventually leading Praise & Worship. Now they’ve got their breakthrough single on the radio from coast to coast.
This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again with the new weekend – and 4 new entries – known as #TravelThursday, a special Christmas edition of #RetroFriday, #SundayScripture, and the final #Top10Monday of 2022.
