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 January 08TH 2023 – the 308TH week of this current era that began on Presidents’ Day Weekend of 2017:
|TW||LW||WKS||SONG TITLE||ARTIST / SITE|
|1||1||12||Who I Am
[5TH week @ # 1]
|2||6||4||First Things First||Consumed By Fire|
|3||5||21||New Creation||Mac Powell|
|4||3||15||Love Me Like I Am||for King & Country Ft. Jordin Sparks|
|5||2||18||Miracle Power||We The Kingdom|
|6||4||12||Then Christ Came||MercyMe|
|7||8||6||I See Grace||Micah Tyler|
|8||9||4||My Story Your Glory||Matthew West|
|9||10||2||For The Love Of God||Andrew Ripp|
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2023 – After a 1-week hiatus due to “My Top 22 Of 2022” chart last week – I am back with my 2ND new weekly chart of 2023 – and 1ST to be published online. 2023 will mark the 6TH anniversary of my chart since the restart / resurgence in February 2017. This is the 3RD era of my chart. The 1ST era was born in The United Kingdom in November 1985. The 2ND era started in October 1995 – 3 years after the 1ST era ended. I enjoy compiling my weekly chart. It continues a lifetime hobby that started when I was a kid growing up in Lanham Maryland – listening to Casey Kasem on “American Top 40” and following along via the pages of Billboard Magazine.
FIRST THINGS FIRST – Consumed By Fire are at # 2 this week – surging 4 notches from # 6 last week. 2 weeks ago it appeared to be stalled-out at # 10. It kind of got lost in the shuffle during the couple of weeks leading-up to Christmas when Christmas music consumed the radio airwaves. Once December 26TH hit – the surge was on for this truly remarkable hymn to our Lord + Savior Jesus Christ.
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.
