My Top 10 Hits – Week 322

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 April 16TH 2023 – the 322ND week of this current era that began on Presidents’ Day Weekend of 2017:

1 1 13 The Lord’s Prayer (It’s Yours)
[8TH week @ # 1]
Matt Maher
2 4 11 I Believe It (The Life Of Jesus) Jon Reddick
3 3 18 My Story Your Glory Matthew West
4 2 20 I See Grace Micah Tyler
5 5 9 Running Home Cochren & Co.
6 6 7 This Is Our God Phil Wickham
7 7 3 Easy To Praise Patrick Mayberry
8 8 3 Fingerprints Dan Bremnes
9 1 Desert Road Casting Crowns

# 1 This Week In:
2022 – “See Me Through It” – Brandon Heath
2021 – “Good God Almighty” – Crowder
2020 – “Almost Home” – MercyMe
2019 – “Confidence” – Sanctus Real
2018 – “Freedom Hymn” – Austin French
2017 – “I Have This Hope” – Tenth Avenue North

CASTING CROWNS – My favorite band from McDonough Georgia are back on my chart after a nearly 2½-year hiatus – since “Start Right Here” towards the end of 2020. “Desert Road” is from their album “Healer”, and it’s their first song from that album to hit my chart. “Scars In Heaven” is also from that album, but it stalled just outside of my Top 10. “Crazy People” is a fun song from the album that received airplay on some Christian radio stations. They perform that song towards the end of all of their concerts, and it’s an audience favorite to get crazy with.

“Desert Road” has been playing at some Christian radio stations for almost a year now; although, it’s a recent add at #CountUp favorite K-LOVE. Every time I hear it – I like it more. When they performed it LIVE in concert this past Thursday night – I was singing along with them from 7 rows back.

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.
