“O’Lord” Is Fifth Song From Debut Album To Hit Top 5
NASHVILLE, TN. (January 26, 2018) Centricity Music artist Lauren Daigle’s “O’Lord” is Christian music’s Number 1 song in the country, making it the third No. 1 single from her RIAA-certified Gold, debut album, How Can It Be. The song not only hit No. 1 on the Mediabase Christian Audience Chart, but also the Mediabase AC Published and Nielsen NCA and AC Monitored charts.
“Wow! Five singles in. Who would have known? I’m so grateful that people are still connecting with these songs,” Daigle reflected. “’O’Lord’ is a song” that is for the darkest times. If it has brought any hope, then it has served its purpose. Thank you to my team, the radio programmers, and the listeners for making space in their hearts and giving ‘O’Lord’ a chance.”
The response to “O’Lord” reflects the mass impact Daigle’s music has had on listeners since she released her first EP in 2014. Each of her radio singles, “How Can It Be,” “First,” “Trust In You,” “Come Alive (Dry Bones),” and “O”Lord,” earned Top 5 status, with “First,” “Trust In You,” and, now, “O’Lord” reaching the No. 1 spot.
This milestone follows recent accolades for Daigle. At the end of last year she won the 2017 American Music Award for Favorite Contemporary/Inspirational Artist and her Christmas album Behold stood four weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Christian Albums chart, one year after its release.
“O’Lord” marks another great chapter for the singer-songwriter, who has garnered Grammy nominations, Billboard Awards, Dove Awards, Forbes “30 Under 30” listings, among other forms of acclaim. How Can It Be currently stands at No. 2 on the Billboard chart, three years after its debut.
