Flyleaf is the new kid on the block this week and they join Matthew West, who is still at #1.
The official Top Christian Hits Chart is compiled by checking and averaging Christian charts and top play lists from all over the U.S. such as Billboard, Cashbox and Air 1 to find the most popular songs.
We first heard this exquisite ballad in July and four months later, it's still as glorious and sincere as it was then - just more popular. The second radio single from Love Come To Life, the acoustic background gives a solid sound to absolute truth that we all need to hear - we are redeemed by the blood of the lamb.
In week #21, after sitting at #1 for four weeks (here and on five other charts), "10,000 Reasons (Bless The Lord)" comes to us from last summer's 10,000 Reasons. Written from inspiration that came from Psalm 103, the popular song has a raw feel that brings pure passion to the table.
We first saw "Losing" 18 weeks ago and it was pretty clear that this song would be a hit. The single is from the August release, The Struggle. With 73 radio adds the first week the song was in rotation, this song is pure Tenth Avenue North, doing what they do best - and it ain't losing!
In week #8, "Life & Favor" features the stories (and voices) of James Fortune, Isaac Carree & Lejuene Thompson. Classic Kee, the song is off of Life and Favor, the first release from Pastor Kee's new label, Kee Music Group. Personal testimony is the key here - we've all got one and, as the song reminds us, deliverance is our testimony and our story.

After debuting 19 weeks ago at #6, "Me Without You" spent weeks trading places with Matthew West in the top spot before slipping out of the running. The lead single from tobyMac's latest release, Eye On It, made records. When it hit the radio in late May, it was the most-added single on Christian AC and CHR radio for the week.
In its fifth week, "I Need A Miracle" comes to us from Third Day's latest release, Miracle. Getting lost in a world of that is full of sorrow and pain is a path that we've all walked down. Going to God and crying out to Him is the only answer because He is the only one who can right the ship in the storm.
The title track from Cheri Keaggy's February release is in week #8 in the charts. Experiences are to be shared and "So I Can Tell" is Cheri sharing what she knows about Jesus -- not because she read about Him or heard about Him, but because she has lived in His grace and mercy firsthand.
Debuting this week, "New Horizons" is the title track off of Flyleaf's latest CD, which is also the last release that will have Lacey Sturm behind the mic. Pat Seals, bass player, described the track best when he said it gives, "a feeling of looking toward the unknown future with hope."
