Heirline Takes “Not the Man I Used to Be” to #1 on Christian Voice Magazine’s Top 100 Southern Gospel Chart
SILVER LAKE, Ind. – A testimonial song written by John Dotson (of The Dotsons) reached the #1 spot this month on Christian Voice Magazine’s Top 100 Southern Gospel chart. The song, titled “Not the Man I Used to Be,” was recorded and released as a single to Southern Gospel radio by hit-makers Heirline.
“Not the Man I Used To Be” is the second #1 hit for Heirline on this specific chart from their latest recording The Reason That I Sing. The Dotsons have also recorded the song, and it continues to be one of the group’s most requested tunes.
“I am continually amazed at how God uses this song,” mentioned John Dotson. “People relate to this song so well. We were excited when Ernie Dawson & Heirline decided to record it – and now to see that people are connecting with it on a national level means even more to us!”
Heirline’s version of “Not the Man I Used To Be” reached the #1 spot on Christian Voice Magazine’s Top 100 Southern Gospel chart this month (April 2010 issue).
The Dotsons’ Still Small Voice released last summer. Still Small Voice features production work from Eddie Crook (tracks) and Adrian Payne (vocals). Seven of the project’s 12 tracks were written by John Dotson, including the title cut “Still Small Voice.” The duo also put their touch on classics like “Rise Again,” “Soul Fillin’ Station,” “God Delivers Again,” “He Broke the Chains,” and “Here Today, Gone Tomorrow.”
