Moses’ album, Fall Like Rain (1/22/21, Mountain Fever) continues to have staying power, remaining at #1 on Roots Music Report Top 50 Contemporary Bluegrass Album Chart. Merle Monroe’s big hit, “I’m Leaving Town Tonight” (2/11/21, Pinecastle), jumped seventeen positions from #18 to #1 on the Bluegrass Today Weekly Airplay Chart (the single also recently landed at #1 on the Monthly Airplay Chart for April 2021). And Sideline’s gospel single, “When the Son Rose Up That Morning” (3/5/21, Mountain Home/Crossroads) stayed at #1 on the Bluegrass Today Gospel Weekly Airplay Chart for the second consecutive week.

In addition to Merle Monroe’s #1 spot, Syntax Creative label clients represent half of this week’s Top 10 on the Bluegrass Today Weekly Airplay Chart (Pinecastle Records: Merle Monroe; Mountain Home Music Co./Crossroads: Steve Gulley & Tim Stafford, Chris Jones & The Night Drivers, and The Grascals).

Dark Shadow Recording artist Becky Buller earned the top spot in April’s Bluegrass Unlimited Top 30 Chart with the first single from her latest LP Distance and Time (10/30/20), “The Barber’s Fiddle” (3/27/20). Syntax bluegrass clients represent fourteen of the Top 30 this month.

A week after earning her first Billboard #1, JOKIA and her single “Yahweh” (2/21/20, DarkChild Gospel) slips one spot to #2 overall on the Gospel National Airplay Chart.
