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 February 12TH 2023 – the 313TH week of this current era that began on Presidents’ Day Weekend of 2017:
|TW||LW||WKS||SONG TITLE||ARTIST / SITE|
|1||3||9||My Story Your Glory
[1ST week @ # 1]
|2||4||11||I See Grace||Micah Tyler|
|3||5||4||The Lord’s Prayer (It’s Yours)||Matt Maher|
|4||1||17||Who I Am||Ben Fuller|
|5||2||9||First Things First||Consumed By Fire|
|6||6||20||Love Me Like I Am||for King & Country Ft. Jordin Sparks|
|7||7||26||New Creation||Mac Powell|
|9||9||2||I Believe It (The Life Of Jesus)||Jon Reddick|
|10||–||1||I’m So Blessed||Cain|
# 1 This Week In:
2022 – “Weary Traveler” – Jordan St. Cyr
2021 – “Every Step Of The Way” – Cade Thompson
2020 – “The God Who Stays” – Matthew West
2019 – “Maybe It’s OK” – We Are Messengers
2018 – “Gracefully Broken” – Matt Redman Ft. Tasha Cobbs Leonard
MATTHEW WEST – The man who I call “my favorite singer” scores his 6TH # 1 smash over the past 6 years – more than any other artist (surpassing MercyMe). “My Story Your Glory” ascends to the top in its 9TH week on my chart. It’s Matthew’s 22ND week at # 1, and 152ND week on my chart since this current era began exactly 6 years ago next weekend. This past Friday night TBN aired a portion of Matthew’s Sunday August 21ST 2022 concert at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville Tennessee. The 90-minute special kicked-off with “My Story Your Glory”, and it sounded great. It was also awesome to see him perform “The God Who Stays” – which was my # 1 smash exactly 3 years ago. He told a funny story about how he and his Uber driver sang the song together one night as it played on the radio. (The Uber driver had no idea it was him.) Over the past 5 editions of #SundayScripture I’ve been featuring my sermon that was based on that song.
COCHREN & CO. – Michael Cochren and his band are not on my chart this week, but they are getting ready to return next weekend. His rockin’ new single “Running Home” is sitting just outside of my Top 10 this week. It sounded spectacular LIVE at the TobyMac concert earlier this month. It’s got that mid-1980s big American anthemic rock sound to it. I have a feeling that it will be a long-running track on the radio and on my chart into this Summer. Oh – and no wonder I love this new song. Matthew West cowrote it.
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.
