MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – Sunday Edition, one of Nashville’s favorite groups, has landed their second #1 hit on the GospelMusicTimes.com Top 40 Fan Chart.
The group’s current single, “He Bore a Cross,” reached #1 on this week’s issue of the popular fan-based chart. The group previously had a #1 on the chart with their hit song “Naaman” – which spent three consecutive weeks in the top spot.
“We are continually in awe at the response that this song has received,” mentioned Deon Unthank of Sunday Edition. “This song has been really special – creating many career milestones for our group – and this is just another added blessing for us!”
The GospelMusicTimes.com Top 40 Fan Chart is the only chart in the Southern Gospel community that is determined solely by votes from fans of the genre. In addition to “He Bore a Cross,” the group’s previous single “Absolutely Free” is also charting on the Top 40 at #15 this week. That song peaked at #3 on the chart earlier this year.
In addition to the GospelMusicTimes.com Top 40 Fan Chart – “He Bore a Cross” has seen a resounding impact on almost every chart in Southern Gospel music. The song is currently #44 on the October 2009 issue of the Singing News Top 80 Chart. The song also broke into the SoGospelNews.com Top 40 Weekly Chart – this week charting at #18. “He Bore a Cross” is also charting on the Top 100 charts for Christian Voice Magazine and PowerSource Magazine.
Sunday Edition released this special edition single in conjunction with BSA World Records. “He Bore a Cross” was produced by Glen Bates and written by Bates and Glen Ashworth specifically for the up-and-coming trio. The group will be recording a follow-up single with BSA World Records later this month for a late December/early January release to radio. The new song will see production work from Bates as well.
“He Bore a Cross” is being promoted to radio by Phillip Emery (DJ Man Promotions), Theresa Dillard (TS Promotions), and Tony & Kim Hudgins (Spin-N-Motion Promotions).
Sunday Edition has been recording vocals for a brand new album.
