Grammy Award winner Chris Tomlin's new single, "Good Good Father," is resonating with listeners everywhere and hasn't left the top spot on the iTunes Christian songs chart since its Oct. 2 release - already spending almost four weeks at No. 1.
On Billboard, Tomlin is holding the No. 1 spot on the Christian digital songs chart for the second week in a row as "Good Good Father" marks his fourth single to top that chart. The track also hit the top 10 on the hot Christian songs chart, making it his 22nd top 10, officially breaking the record for the most ever top 10s on that chart. The song has also shot into the top 20 on both the AC monitored and national Christian audience charts.
Last week, Tomlin debuted his second Christmas album, "ADORE: Christmas Songs of Worship," which instantly shot to the No. 1 spot on iTunes holiday albums chart. The album was recorded live at Ocean Way Studios in Nashville and features special guests Lauren Daigle, All Sons & Daughters and Kristyn Getty.
Tomlin is currently on the second leg of what's already been the biggest tour of his career, the "Love Ran Red Tour." Featuring special guests Rend Collective, the 22-city tour kicked off in Nashville earlier this month. So far, the tour has helped raise more than $700,000 for CURE International, which helps fund surgeries for children with physical disabilities in developing countries. Tomlin has partnered with CURE for the "Love Ran Red Tour" and, this season, he is giving away "ADORE: Christmas Songs of Worship" to anyone who donates $50 or more to the organization.
