For eight weeks in a row, Matthew West’s first single “More” garners NO.1 on R&R’s Christian AC chart.

“When any artist spends multiple weeks at No. 1 on any chart it is a feat,” says R&R Christian editor, Rick Welke. When a new artist, especially with today's low-count playlists, makes it to the top of a chart it is huge news. For Matthew to make it a record-breaking eight weeks on the R&R Christian AC chart at the top spot, that is an unbelievable accomplishment. ‘More’ is a massive song that has hit the bull’s-eye with Christian radio!”

Brian Dishon, Director of National Promotions for EMI CMG Label Group, comments, “With the current trend of radio to rely heavily on core artists and familiar tunes, the support given to Matthew's debut single from AC and CHR radio has been unbelievable. It is a testament to the power of a lyric to pour into the hearts of listeners everywhere and that has resulted in success on the trade radio charts.”

West’s album “Happy” features a message of love and faith in life, radiating passion and inspiring thousands of people around the nation.

As his music continuously spreads, our hope is that the listeners could live according to his songs, with a positive perspective in life, glorifying God each and everyday with this kind of love and faith.
