|Tomlin’s Arriving Reaches #1, Charts 2 Top 10 Hits At Once
04 April 2005
Chris Tomlin’s third studio album, ARRIVING, has gained momentum to reach #1 on the Top Christian Albums sales chart for the very first time more than six months after its original release date according to SoundScan. The much-loved disc has also notched another rare feat: two simultaneous Top 10 radio hits.
Tomlin, a premier songwriter known for penning modern worship favorites such as “Forever,” “We Fall Down,” and “Famous One,” issued ARRIVING last September to national acclaim. The project topped the Praise & Worship Album sales chart upon release, received high marks from Knight Ridder News Service and ChristianityToday.com, and gained a 2005 Dove Award nomination for Praise & Worship Album of the Year. Tomlin was also invited to be a special guest on Steven Curtis Chapman’s All Things New concert tour. (Chapman duets with Tomlin on ARRIVING’s “Unfailing Love”).
ARRIVING is led by the #1 smash, “Indescribable,” which remains a Top 10 radio hit nearly eight months after its initial release. Now, the album’s second single, “Holy Is The Lord,” is a Top 10 hit as well; the tracks are at #9 and #3 respectively on the latest Radio & Records Adult Contemporary chart.
In relation, ARRIVING has shot all the way back up at #124 on this week’s Billboard magazine Top 200 Albums chart (encompassing all genres) and become Tomlin’s fastest selling album to date.
