The Charismatic Country-Rock Singer/Songwriter, Whose Latest Single “Make It Into Heaven” Takes A Giant Leap Into The Top 3 on PowerSource’s Christian Country Top 100 Chart, Will Join Morgan For Six Dates In July and August

Earlier this year, Steve Richard’s infectious song “Stomp” became an anthem for the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA), rocking the house across the country and on the air as wrestlers entered the ring.

Now, the charismatic country-rock singer/songwriter (www.steverichardmusic.com), who is joining genre superstar Craig Morgan on the road for six dates in July and August, has a new, loftier stomping ground—PowerSource’s Christian Country Top 100 Chart, where his latest single “Make It Into Heaven” takes a quantum 21-slot leap into the Top 5.

The track placed at #24 in June and is #3 on the July chart, just behind hits by Tracy Lawrence and Kathy Joy Bell and ahead of Del Way, Tommy Brandt and Phil Vassar.

Richard is set to open shows for Morgan starting at the Crawford Country Fair in Cuba, Missouri on July 18 and wrapping at the Capitol Arts Theatre in Bowling Green, Kentucky on August 27. Read the rest of this entry

This week, Greg London (www.gregorylondon.com) boasts an incredible achievement on the FMQB AC40 Radio Chart that even his superstar cohorts—including Miley CyrusRob ThomasDaughtryPinkJason Mraz and The Fray — rarely lay claim to.

The master musical impressionist, who was recently voted the “Best Entertainer In Nevada” in Nevada Magazine’s 2009 Best of Nevada Readers Survey, has not one but two songs on the chart—and, incredibly enough, both are climbing at the same time!

London’s latest single, a cover of Little River Band’s classic “Cool Change” makes a huge leap from #56 to debut in the Top 40 at #39. “Everything I Own,” his popular debut hit of the past few months, had been descending from its high of #5, but this week rises three slots from #32 to #29!

“Cool Change” is also one of the most added tracks on three key airplay charts: the FMQB AC40 chart, the Radio & Records (R&R) AC chart and the Mediabase chart.
