Penned by celebrated songwriter Dianne Wilkinson, â€œThe Father & the Sonâ€ has reached the #1 position for a second consecutive week on the AbsolutelyGospel.com (formerly SoGospelNews.com) Top 40 Weekly Chart â€“ the Southern Gospelâ€™s most watched and respected weekly radio report.
â€œThis song has instantly become one of our most requested songs in concert,â€ mentioned Chris Freeman of The Freemans. â€œThe 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!â€
â€œThe Father & the Sonâ€ is also quickly rising on other respected industry charts â€“ 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 Magazineâ€™s Top 100 Southern Gospel chart.
â€œThe Father & the Sonâ€ is the debut single from The Freemanâ€™s much-anticipated new recording â€“ 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 Freemansâ€™ website.
