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 March 05TH 2023 – the 316TH week of this current era that began on Presidents’ Day Weekend of 2017:

STEVEN CURTIS CHAPMAN – An incredible phenomenon occurs this week. Mr. Chapman scores his 50TH # 1 smash at U.S. Christian radio with “Don’t Lose Heart”. The man has been charting on the radio for almost as long as this chart has been in existence – since the mid-1980s. It was a slow climb to the top. It was originally released to radio last July, and it stalled-out along the way before picking up steam early this year. It’s a rare re-entry on my chart – having originally spent 8 weeks on it back in August and September and peaking at # 4. An amazing 23 weeks after falling off my chart – it’s back at # 9. This is actually a new version of the single with country musician Michael Tenpenny assisting.
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.
