The Down East Boys have reached the No. 1 spot on two Southern Gospel charts with the latest single from their album, Faithful Still (STREAM/BUY). “Amazing Amounts of Amazing Grace” is at the top of both the Singing News chart and the SGN Scoops Southern Gospel chart.
The song is the group’s fourth number one song in the last two years, following “Beat Up Bible,” “Testimony Time” and “I’d Like To Tell It Again.”
“We were blessed to record this song at a time when the message is needed now more than ever,” says lead singer Ricky Carden about “Amazing Amounts of Amazing Grace.” “Even in tough and trying times the Lord gives us amazing amounts of grace each day to sustain through uncertain times.”
The first song on Faithful Still, “Amazing Amounts of Amazing Grace” begins the album on an upbeat note, with all four group members singing with an Oak Ridge Boys country feel. Stating “Every day the Lord displays amazing amounts of amazing grace,” this song reminds listeners to not overlook God’s presence in their daily lives.
