Eighth Day Enjoys Continued Success at Southern Gospel Radio
Group Scores 4th Consecutive Top 20 Hit
SPARTANBURG, S.C. – (May 5, 2010) – Popular Southern Gospel trio Eighth Day continues to enjoy much success at Southern Gospel radio. The celebrated trio recently scored their third consecutive Top 20 hit from their latest recording – Everything Holy – and fourth Top 20 hit of their career.
The group’s current single, the heart-tugging “Trust His Heart,” just broke the Top 20 on the upcoming June issue of the Singing News Top 80 chart – the Southern Gospel industry’s most recognized airplay report. The song rose from #25 to #20 for the report.
“We continue to be amazed at how God uses these songs,” mentioned Scott Robinson of Eighth Day. “’Trust His Heart’ means a lot to us, but more importantly it has a timely message for today’s church. ‘When you can’t see His hand – trust His heart.’ What a fantastic message!”
“Trust His Heart” follows in the footsteps of the group’s last three singles. All three previous singles broke the Top 20 as well – making Eighth Day one of the most played artists at Southern Gospel presently. The previous singles include “Rolled Away Stone” (#16), “Everything Holy to Me” (#18), and “The Veil Was Torn” (#18).
“Trust His Heart” has also had a good run on other radio reports such as reaching #12 on the AbsolutelyGospel.com Top 20 Weekly Chart (formerly SoGospelNews.com). The song has also charted on the Christian Voice Magazine Top 100 Southern Gospel Chart and been a regular fixture on the SouthernGospelTimes.com Top 40 Fan Chart.
Eighth Day will be releasing a new single from Everything Holy soon. More information on that single will be released at a later date.
