Arden, North Carolina (March 25, 2021) — The Down East Boys have reached the No. 1 spot on three Southern Gospel charts with the latest single from their album, Faithful Still. “What Love” is at the top on the Singing News Power 50 Weekly Chart, SGN Scoops Southern Gospel chart, and AbsolutelyGospel.com Top 40 Weekly Chart.
“It is always an honor to see our songs reach the #1 position!” says Ricky Carden, Down East Boys’ lead singer. “‘What Love’ is a simple yet powerful message of Christ love for us. It is the message that we strive to share every time we get to sing. Romans 5:8 says, ‘In that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.’ ‘What Love’ he showed for us!”
“What Love” — which follows other No. 1 songs like “Beat Up Bible,” “Testimony Time,” “I’d Like To Tell It Again,” and “Amazing Amounts of Amazing Grace” — is from the Down East Boys’ album Faithful Still, which spreads God’s word with themes of hope, love and faithfulness.
