The Nelons’ “He Found Me” Gains Major Momentum at Southern Gospel Radio
JACKSONVILLE, Fl. – Legendary Gospel music group The Nelons have seen their latest single gain major momentum at Southern Gospel radio. The song, titled “He Found Me,” is already charting on many of the major Southern Gospel charts and has become a fan favorite as well.
“He Found Me” was one of the most added songs at Southern Gospel radio for the Singing News Magazine Top 80 chart‘s November 2009 report – making it one of the most added songs at Southern Gospel radio this month. In addition, the song recently broke the Top 10 on the SoGospelNews.com Top 40 Weekly Chart after only weeks on the chart. The song is currently ranked at #6 after only six weeks on the chart.
For the past three weeks, “He Found Me” has been the #1 fan favorite song – according to the SoGospelNews.com Top 40 Weekly Chart – giving it a major edge over older songs on the chart.
“The fans have really come out to support this awesome family,” mentioned Deon Unthank of SoGospelNews.com. “Being the fan favorite for one week is an awesome feat – but for a group to hold on to that title for multiple weeks is really something. The Nelons really have a hit song on their hands with ‘He Found Me’.”
In addition, “He Found Me” has been consistently charting on the GospelMusicTimes.com Top 100 Fan Chart – the only chart in Southern Gospel music that is purely based on the votes of the fans.
“He Found Me” was written by Dove Award-winning songwriters Wayne Haun and Joel Lindsey and group member Jason Clark and is being promoted to Southern Gospel radio by Jim Stover and Crossroads Music. The song is the debut single from The Nelons’ upcoming Vine Records release – Beside Still Waters.
Beside Still Waters has an early 2010 release date. More information on that release will be forthcoming.
