Written by SGN Scoops on December 7, 2011 – 11:15 am -

SPARTANBURG, S.C. – (December 6, 2011) – Popular Southern Gospel trio Eighth Day are asking is Southern Gospel radio is “ready” for their brand new single.  The aptly titled single, “Are You Ready?,” is the follow-up to the group’s first ever #1 hit – “May I Never Get Over the Cross.”  This new single is a head-bobbing commercial-Country tinged tune written by Eighth Day’s own Monty Lane Allen. Scott Robinson of Eighth Day said, “Radio has already been so kind to our group. We continue to be humbled by their acceptance of us and our music. The response to ‘Are You Ready?’ has already been tremendous!” Eighth Day has already seen strong early support for the song. “Are You Ready?” will rank #30 on the upcoming January 2012 edition of the Singing News Top 80 Chart, it and made a big jump from #24 to #19 on this week’s AbsoluteyGospel.com Top 40 Weekly Chart. The song is being promoted to radio by Spin-N-Motion Promotions. Eighth Day earned a career high earlier this year as the group’s last sing – “May I Never Get Over the Cross” – reached the #1 position on the Singing News Top 80 chart – the industry’s most watched and respected radio report. The ministry-oriented single had been making waves at radio since it’s release several months ago. In addition to hit #1 on the Singing News Top 80, the song earned a career first last month as the smash-hit single reached the #1 spot on the AbsolutelyGospel.com Top 40 Weekly Chart – the Southern Gospel industry’s most watched weekly radio report. The song went #1 for the week of May 2, 2011 and continued to hold the #1 spot for three more weeks. The four week run at #1 has been bested by only one other song this year (The Dunaways’ “When There’s No Hope, There Is Grace”) and remains Eighth Day’s most successful song to date. “Are You Ready?” is the group’s sixth single from their SGN Music Award nominated project Everything Holy. All singles from that album have reached the Top 40 on both the Singing News Top 80 and AbsolutelyGospel.com Top 40 Weekly Chart.  Eighth Day was honored with news that they were named as one of the 20 most played artists of 2010. According to AbsolutelyGospel.com (formerly SoGospelNews.com), Eighth Day ranked #14 on the Top 20 Most Played Artists of 2010 list – in between mainstays and hit makers The Isaacs and The Bowling Family. The list was compiled by the AbsolutelyGospel.com Top 40 Weekly Chart year-end figures. More information on Eighth Day can be found at http://www.eighthdaymusic.com .   About Eighth Day
