Chart-Topper Earnest Pugh Continues His Streak At #1 On Gospel Charts

   Inspirational psalmist Earnest Pugh has a tight reign on the #1 spot on the Billboard Top Gospel Songs chart.  His song, “I Need Your Glory”, a gut-wrenching gospel ballad, has been sitting atop the charts for nine weeks now.  The lead single from his latest release, Earnestly Yours, which also peaked at number one on the Billboard Top Gospel Albums Chart, has been heard on almost every gospel radio station in the country.  The song beckons for the glory of God and showcases the gifted singer’s multi-octave range.

Not only has the song helped the artist gain four 27th Stellar Award Nominations for Artist of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, Contemporary Male Vocalist of the Year and Praise and Worship CD of the Year (for Earnestly Yours), but it’s also earned him a coveted slot on the upcoming WOW Gospel 2012.  The compilation, consisting of two CDs, includes the hottest gospel songs of the year.  The WOW Gospel series is one of the best sellers in the genre and is a feather in the cap of the artist who has seen his career skyrocket since his mega-hit “Rain On Us” hit the airwaves.
