NATIONWIDE RESEARCH AT A GLANCE
We asked Contemporary Christian Music Radio listeners in multiple markets across the North America during the past few months about their favorite Christian songs. We continue to see worship titles score well. Here are the Top 5 Worship Titles . . . and the next five . . . all songs that deserve consideration if you play music.
- Chris Tomlin/Whom Shall I Fear
- Chris Tomlin/Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)
- Francesca Battistelli/Holy Spirit
- Chris Tomlin/Our God
- Matt Redman/10,000 Reasons
- Chris Tomlin/I Lift My Hands
- Phil Wickham/This Is Amazing Grace
- Chris Tomlin or Zealand Worship/Good Good Father

- Newsboys/God’s Not Dead (Like A Lion)
We believe that Tomlin guy is going to do okay. Six of the Top 10 is pretty amazing!
