The Harris Family released the second song from their Created to Worship project just one week ago, and today it sits at the top spot of the Radio Music Week Top 100 Southern Gospel Chart. Only You Can Wear The Crown, written by Clay Winskie and Neil Dumas, is the second consecutive #1 from this album. Members of the group would like to extend a special thank you to the DJ’s and Program Directors for their warm reception to the album and especially to this song. “This was one of those songs that just captured our hearts from the very first time we heard it,” says Sue Harris of the group. “We were hopeful that the song would have a similar impact on others, and it has! To watch those in our audience connect with this song and join us in a spirit of true worship is an unexplainable blessing to us.”
Charles Brady, of Radioactive Airplay adds, “This is a powerful and worshipful song that you could easily confuse as a song coming from a top tier group, but I believe that God put it into the hands of the group that was supposed to have it. It has quickly become a radio top pick and from what I know about The Harris Family, it defines and demonstrates the real passion for worship and love for the Lord that this family has. Producer Art Bain, did a stellar job of arranging and producing every single song on this Created to Worship project. It is simply incredible!”
Sue says she has to agree with Charles’ comments about what a great song it is. “We knew that God’s hand of blessing was upon us when this song landed in our inbox from Chris Binion, the publisher of the song. Songs like this do not always make their way into the hands of groups like The Harris Family. Chris has been a true friend to this ministry and he has never held out on us in order to put a song into the hands of a group that would no doubt sell more CDs or earn him more royalties through radio play. He just shares what he has and allows God to take care of the rest. I respect him so much for that. And not to change the subject, but Kristen, who is featured on this song, simply hit the vocal out of the park! I honestly don’t think you could find a singer out there who could sing it any better than she does. Some songs just ‘fit’ us, and this one is right in her wheelhouse!”
