This year has been a year of renewal and refreshment for Jeremy Camp with the release of his recent album last month "Speaking Louder Than Before." As the year comes to a close, radio and fans are speaking loud and clear in regards to the new album and radio single "There Will Be A Day."
Radio Waves in '08: With 17 career No. 1 hits under his belt, Jeremy Camp is clearly a powerhouse on the radio waves nationwide across all formats (CHR, AC, INSPO, and Rock). Jeremy is now the artist with the most consecutive No. 1 singles at AC Monitored since 2003 when R&R began their Christian chart. He also received the No. 2 Song of the Year in 2008 with "Let it Fade," which remained in that No. 1 position for more than 10 weeks. In 2008, Jeremy also nabbed No. 1 twice at three different formats.
His most recent single "There Will Be A Day" has already hit the top on three formats on AC Indicator (more than a month at No. 1), CHR and as of last week at AC Monitored. As a renowned songwriter with his radio hits, 2008 also brought Jeremy his third ASCAP Songwriter of the Year (2008, 2006, 2005).
Winning Vote in 2008: No, this isn't the Presidential election referenced here, but the fact that Jeremy Camp was voted by readers on Christianity Today's music site as the "Best Male Artist in 2008" marking it his fifth consecutive year named in this category. Jeremy won this year with a landslide as voters awarded Camp twice as many votes as the runner-up.
Speaking Louder Than Before in 2008: The pinnacle of the year for this male vocalist was releasing his fifth studio album co-produced by himself and Brown Bannister. The album debuted on Billboard 200 at No. 38 along with the No. 1 new release on the Billboard Christian chart after street week. Digital purchases shot "Speaking Louder Than Before" to No. 11 on the overall iTunes chart and No. 1 on the Christian albums chart. Billboard also labeled this album as his "best work to date," which clearly fans agree as it has moved his career sales to over three million units.
