Family Music Group, the radio promotion division of Butler Music Group, is celebrating a successful month on Gospel radio. With the release of several national charts, FMG artists had tremendous success. On the Singing News Top 80 chart, seven artists made the list starting with Tim Livingston at #13 with “Headed For Higher Ground.” The Old Time Preachers Quartet have another hit song with their second release to radio, “Wavin This World Goodbye,” rising quickly to # 27. The Williamsons have become one of the most played artists on radio and their most recent single, “I’ve Got To Tell Somebody,” has given them another Top 40 hit coming in at #29.
Jason Davidson is quickly becoming a breakout soloist. His current single, “He Came Searching For Me” is currently at #52. Aaron & Amanda Crabb sits at # 68 with “I’ve Seen What He Can Do.” Bama Blu-Grace is having a tremendous month. Their single “How Does It Feel To Be Home” took the #1 spot on the Bluegrass Gospel chart and also crossed over onto the Southern Gospel chart at #75. The Coffmans rounded out the Southern Gospel chart success with “I Will Fear No Evil” landing at #79.
In addition to the Bama Blu-Grace #1 song, Walking By Faith rose to #5 with “I Am Redeemed,” Heaven’s Mountain Band’s “Who’s Waiting For Me” climbed to #6 and the King James Boys followed close behind with “Somebody Prayed For Me” landing at #8.
The success continued on the SGNScoops chart with seven artists making that list as well. Tim Livingston claimed the #13 spot on this chart also and Jason Davidson secured his first Top 40 with “He Came Searching For Me” coming in at #30. Heaven’s Mountain Band found success on the Southern chart with “I Went Under The Blood” landing at #47. Rounding out the SGNScoops charts were the Williamsons, the Old Time Preachers Quartet, and Sherry Damron.
