A Couple of Things
I saw the Ken Barne's article about my chart position. He is right that I've been at #19 for a couple of weeks. However, from what I'm being told, there's nothing to be worried about with where we're at. With the way that Christian Radio works, there are stations that will not add a song until they have gotten testing back. And every radio station involved will not put the song into heavy rotation until the testing has come back. Testing usually takes about 6-8 weeks from when they add the song. Our single's release date was Feb 22...so, we're just now getting research back for the stations that added week one or the stations that started testing week one.
We are hearing that testing is coming back out-of-this-world good, so the team around me feels pretty confident that we'll see the single start to climb again in the next few weeks. If you look at Matthew West's single, he was on the chart for close to 20 weeks before he broke the top 5. We've only been on the charts for 6 weeks. It just takes time. If you look at the top 20, no one is moving up substantially except the huge artists like Third Day. We're doing great right now!
Secondly, I'd love to have you all post reviews of the album street week. Just 2-3 paragraphs would be great. On May 6, I'll start a discussion thread that will be dedicated to your reviews.
Thirdly, I just posted another Theological Digression. So, check that out.
Fourthly, I posted another Adventures of Sligh. So, check that out.
