The Top 5 Female CCM Artists

Every year, Finney Media Research tests library songs from CCM artists with listeners across the United States. Listeners decide this ranking from research we’ve gathered across North America.  

We thought it would be fun for you to see the Top 5 Female Artists from our research recently. If you’re playing them, terrific! If you’re not, perhaps it’s time for a second look:

  1. Lauren Daigle
  2. Kari Jobe
  3. Tasha Layton
  4. Katy Nichole
  5. (tied) Anne Wilson & Francesca Battistelli

We’ve seen a resurgence of top testing songs by women in the past few years, including Katy Nichole’s debut. Francesca Battistelli and Kari Jobe continue to score well. But the real story in the Top Five is the dominance of Lauren Daigle. The way we do our Artist Scoring rewards artists with lots of high testing songs. Lauren scores are so much higher than the others that her score total, driven by lots of hit songs with high scores, is larger than all four of the artists behind her!

Coming in February: The Top 5 Male Artists in nationwide CCM Music Research during 2023. There are changes this year in the list! Be sure you’re playing these artists and grow your listenership.
