The Top 5 Testing Songs

Every year, Finney Media Research tests library songs from CCM artists with listeners across the United States. 

We thought it would be profitable for you to see the Top Five Testing Songs from our recent research plus the next five songs. If you’re playing them, terrific! If you’re not, perhaps it’s time for a discussion about playing them.  

Top 5 Testing Songs

  1. MercyMe – Greater 2014
  2. Hillsong Worship – Who You Say I Am 2018
  3. Phil Wickham – House of the Lord 2021
  4. Chris Tomlin – Whom Shall I Fear 2012
  5. Casting Crowns – Nobody 2018

    . . . and the next 5

  6. Matt Redman – 10,000 Reasons 2012
  7. Lauren Daigle – You Say 2018
  8. Newsboys – We Believe 2013
  9. Cody Carnes – Ain’t Nobody 2022
  10. Phil Wickham – This Is Amazing Grace 2013

A noteworthy fact before we say more on this list: For the first time since the movie came out, I Can Only Imagine is not among the Top 10 testing songs. But take a deep breath and don’t pull it off the air. It’s at no.15.  

The most notable thing on this list is the surge in testing on worship songs. Hillsong Worship at no. 2. Tomlin at no. 4. Redman at no. 6. Carnes at no. 9. Wickham at no.10. Our listeners love worship songs and, if anything, the scores are climbing.
