Great News! Advent Hymn Charting at #7 for Adds on Christian AC Radio

In preparation for the Christmas Season

Each year in late Summer/early Fall, artists like myself begin sending music out to radio stations, hoping the songs will become a part of those station’s annual Advent celebrations. Last week my song Advent Hymn (Watching, Waiting, Longing) went out to over 1500 radio stations internationally. Those stations, through streaming and downloading, caused it to chart at #7 for streams and #14 for downloads. I could hardly believe my eyes, but there it was charting with amazing artists like Trisha Yearwood, Phil Wickham, Casting Crowns, Brandon Lake and so many others.

As you can imagine, this is really exciting news for me. I’m grateful to my friends at Lifeway Worship for publishing this song and helping me to share it in so many new places this year. I’m also grateful to all of the reporting Play MPE Radio Stations who are using this song in 2020.

My prayer is always that Christ’s message will be received through the words and music of my songs, and I hope you will pray for that too we approach the coming Advent and Christmas Seasons. It is always an honor to be able to tell the story of Jesus through song, and I thank you for being a part of helping me to present the message.
