NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Popular Southern Gospel artist The Freemans have earned their latest #1 song.
The group’s current single – “Three Rugged Crosses” – is resting at the #1 spot on the April 2009 issue of the Christian Voice Magazine’s Southern Gospel Top 100 Chart.
Darrell Freeman of The Freemans said, “Radio has been very supportive of this song, and we know that it is having a great affect on fans of Gospel music. Marty and Rick Funderburk did a great job writing this song.”
“Three Rugged Crosses” has been having a resounding impact at Southern Gospel radio. In addition to reaching the #1 spot this month in Christian Voice Magazine, the song peaked at #2 on the SoGospelNews.com Top 40 Weekly Chart and has charted for 35 consecutive weeks on that chart – making it the longest running song in the chart’s history.
The song also reached #1 on the GospelMusicTimes.com Top 40 Fan Chart. The GospelMusicTimes.com Top 40 Fan Chart is the Southern Gospel industry’s only chart that is based solely on the votes of the fans.
“Three Rugged Crosses” was written by Rick and Marty Funderburk and is found on their latest album – Eyes On the Prize. That album has spawned off the record-breaking #1 hit “He Chose Me” as well as the hit single “Cast In the Sea” and ministry driven “I Need a Drink.”
The Freemans are currently preparing to record their follow-up to Eyes On the Prize. The album is slated to release later in 2009.
