# 1 One Year Ago This Week:
“Gracefully Broken” – Matt Redman Ft. Tasha Cobbs Leonard

This week marks the 2ND anniversary of the start of the 3RD era of my hit music chart. The original era lasted not quite 7 years (1985-1992), and the 2ND era was alive for a little over 14 years (1995-2010). After an over 7-year hiatus I quietly resurrected my chart with a single song – TobyMac‘s “Love Broke Thru”. It was the # 1 and only song that week exactly 2 years ago.

That (Sunday) night 2 years ago I saw TobyMac (and friends) LIVE in concert in Tallahassee Florida. This Friday night I’ll be seeing TobyMac (and friends) LIVE in concert again – here in South Florida. Toby’s friends this time around will be Jeremy Camp, Jordan Feliz, Ryan Stevenson, We Are Messengers, and Aaron Cole. I am so looking forward to this show. I’ve got a great seat on the floor just 8 rows from the stage. Needless to say I probably won’t be seated for very long. I’ll be singing and dancing in Row H.

The day after that TobyMac concert two years ago is the day (Presidents’ Day) that I discovered that K-LOVE is a national over-the-air radio network with a station back home in South Florida. The next day (Tuesday) I headed home, and about 100 miles from home I tuned-in to K-LOVE for the first time ever. I’ve been listening ever since then. It’s great that their signal comes from a 100,000 watt / 1,000-foot transmitter that’s just 5 miles from my home. (I can actually see it from my home.)

That one-song chart exactly two years ago became a Top 3 the following week, a Top 5 the week after that, and a Top 10 in its 4TH week. This 3RD era of my hit music chart is known by me as the “K-LOVE Era”.

This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again next weekend – 4 blog posts on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest.

The Major’s Top 10 Hits – Week 104

Every Monday night I post my all-new Top 10 Christian hit music chart based on personal preference and influenced by radio airplay. Here it is – for the week ending Sunday February 10TH 2019:

  1. “Maybe It’s OK” – We Are Messengers [# 2 last week / 11TH week on chart]
  2. “Best News Ever” – MercyMe [3 / 8TH]
  3. “Nobody Loves Me Like You” – Chris Tomlin [1 / 15TH]
  4. “Red Letters” – Crowder [5 / 8TH]
  5. “Forever On Your Side” – NeedToBreathe [6 / 7TH]
  6. “Even Then” – Micah Tyler [4 / 26TH]
  7. “Known” – Tauren Wells [7 / 27TH]
  8. “God Only Knows” – for King & Country [9 / 2ND]
  9. “Never Alone” – Tori Kelly & Kirk Franklin [10 / 2ND]
  10. “Look Up Child” – Lauren Daigle [- / 1ST]

# 1 One Year Ago This Week:
“Gracefully Broken” – Matt Redman Ft. Tasha Cobbs Leonard

We Are Messengers finally reach # 1 on my chart with their 3RD hit single in a row. “Magnify” peaked at # 2 in 2017, “Point To You” hit # 3 in 2018, and now “Maybe It’s OK” becomes the 30TH # 1 smash of this 3RD era of my chart. That makes it my favorite song on the radio right now. I’ll be singing along loud and proud when they perform it LIVE right in front of me at the upcoming TobyMac concert here in South Florida.

Micah Tyler does something amazing this week. His former # 1 smash “Even Then” spends its 26TH week on my chart. A year ago this week his former # 1 smash “Different” fell off of my chart after 26 weeks. Micah is getting ready to go on a 9-week nationwide tour with MercyMe, and I’ve got a floor seat for their Tampa Florida show in May.

Tauren Wells sets an all-new longevity record during this 3RD era of my chart, as “Known” spends its 27TH week on my chart. I’m still singing along to this song at home and in my car.

I’m fully known, and loved by You.
You won’t let go – no matter what I do.
And it’s not one or the other.
It’s hard truth and ridiculous grace.
To be known – fully known, and loved by You.
I’m fully known, and loved by You

# 1 One Year Ago This Week:
“Gracefully Broken” – Matt Redman Ft. Tasha Cobbs Leonard

No new entries last week for the unpublished chart during my hiatus, and two new entries this week. “God Only Knows” is sort of a surprise follow-up radio single to “joy” for Joel & Luke. I was actually expecting it to be the title track of their new album “Burn The Ships” (which I really like). Maybe it’ll be the next radio single later on in 2019.

One of the many highlights of my trip in the Caribbean last week was walking in to Rusty Fish at the West End of Roatán Honduras, and hearing Christian hit music blaring loud and proud all throughout the store – specifically Jordan Feliz. It put a big smile on my face. Check out their web site to see their mission to save the world in multiple ways.

# 1 One Year Ago This Week – “Lions” – Skillet

The 100TH week of the 3RD era of my personal hit music chart brings a brand new # 1 smash from a familiar artist. Chris Tomlin scores his 2ND # 1 smash. It’s the follow-up to His “Resurrection Power” which peaked at # 3 last summer which was the follow-up to his # 1 debut smash “Home” during the previous summer (2017).

We Are Messengers inch closer to the top with a track that has really grown on me over the past month-and-a-half. I’m really looking forward to seeing them LIVE in concert here in South Florida next month at the TobyMac show. I have a floor seat just 8 rows from the end stage near the middle. I’ll be required to sing and dance all night long !

Hillsong United’s latest “Not Today” reaches my Top 5 for the first time – in its 17TH week. Fun Fact:  It spent 10 non-consecutive weeks at # 7. I love when it comes on the radio. I always sing along to it.

Today marks the end of a full year in my return to WordPress. I left this platform behind during the early-2010s to tweet and put up a wall (on Facebook). This blog actually started on MySpace back in 2007, and then I modernized it to WordPress towards the end of that same year. This past year of blogging was my most satisfying (and most read – worldwide) since the peak of my original WordPress run a full decade ago. It was more active than every year of blogging during my ill-fated run on Facebook. I have all of you – who read this blog – who like it – who follow it – who tell their friends about it – to thank – for supporting this rejuvenation of my ministry. Let’s keep this forward momentum going. Let’s continue to glorify our everlasting God !

This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again next weekend – 4 blog posts on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest.

# 1 One Year Ago This Week – “Lions” – Skillet

My first new weekly chart of 2019 looks pretty much like my last new weekly chart of 2018. There are no new entries, and only one hit makes upward momentum – “Maybe It’s OK” – the 3RD big hit in a row from We Are Messengers. Their “Magnify” hit # 2, and their “Point To You” hit # 3 in 2017. I get to see them LIVE in concert next month at the TobyMac show !

Next Monday night I’ll present my 100TH weekly chart of this current era that began on Presidents’ Day Weekend of 2017 – the night of the last TobyMac show that I attended. I’m not planning anything special. It’ll just be another new weekly chart. That’s the way this chart was born again. No fanfare. No planning. It just happened. God’s Glory.

This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again next weekend – 4 blog posts on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest.

  18. “No Matter What” – Ryan Stevenson Ft. Bart Millard [# 3 for 1 week]

# 1 Of 2017 – “Broken Things” – Matthew West

What a great year for God’s music. What a great chart to represent His music. Not a lot of surprises there. When “Do It Again” and “Grace Got You” became summertime anthems and finished as # 1 and # 2 on my special “Summer Of 2018” chart – they pretty much clinched # 1 and # 2 for the entire year.

MercyMe also had the # 2 smash of all of 2017 with “Even If”. Both “Even If” and “Grace Got You” fell 8 points shy of the # 1 spot for their respective years.

This chart was compiled by awarding 10 points for each week at # 1, 9 points for # 2, and so forth and so on down to 1 point for # 10. The points are then added, and the hits are ranked.

There were 13 # 1 hits in 2018, and all but 1 of them made the Top 18 – “Lions” (Skillet). It was a holdover from 2017, and its run at # 1 was actually at the end of its chart life.

This concludes another weekend of blog posts. I’ll do it again next weekend – 4 blog posts on Thursday, Friday, Sunday, and Monday. I don’t blog on Saturdays. That’s my day of rest.
