The Freemans Score Latest #1 Hit
“The Father & the Son” Continues to Rise On Several Key Charts
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (November 24, 2010) – Southern Gospel favorites The Freemans have scored their latest #1 single with the lyric driven and poignant new single “The Father & the Son.”
Penned by celebrated songwriter Dianne Wilkinson, “The Father & the Son” has reached the #1 position for a second consecutive week on the AbsolutelyGospel.com (formerly SoGospelNews.com) Top 40 Weekly Chart – the Southern Gospel’s most watched and respected weekly radio report.
“This song has instantly become one of our most requested songs in concert,” mentioned Chris Freeman of The Freemans. “The message is resonating with listeners and the people that are coming out to our concerts. We are so grateful that radio has gotten behind this song!”
“The Father & the Son” is also quickly rising on other respected industry charts – rising from #28 to #19 for the upcoming January 2011 edition of the Singing News Top 80 Chart and coming in at #10 for the December issue of Christian Voice Magazine’s Top 100 Southern Gospel chart.
“The Father & the Son” is the debut single from The Freeman’s much-anticipated new recording – Evidence. Four years in the making, Evidence is truly The Freemans most transparent and emotional release to date. Evidence features songs that were chosen in response to four pivotal years for the group, which were mired with multiple family deaths and extremely personal losses for individual group members. Those events took the group on an emotional journey that resonates throughout the new recording.
Evidence is now available at concert events and on The Freemans’ website.
