Four time Grammy-nominated and six time Dove Award-winning family group Karen Peck & New River has laid claim to its latest #1 hit single. It was announced this week that the group’s current single, “Calling“, will lay claim to the #1 spot on the upcoming January 2017 Singing News Top 80 chart.
Karen stated, “Our hearts are so blessed by the kindness of our precious DJ friends for playing our music. Thanks to all of you for calling your local radio stations and requesting our songs.“
In addition to the Singing News Top 80, “Calling” recently spent four weeks at #1 on the AbsolutelyGospel.com Top 40 Weekly Chart, the industry’s most watched and trusted weekly radio report.
“Calling” is the third single from New River’s Dove Award-winning project Pray Now. The project’s debut single, “Pray Now”, also reached the #1 spot on all the major charts in the Southern Gospel industry, including the Singing News Top 40 and AbsolutelyGospel.com Top 40 Weekly Chart.
Karen Peck & New River has had a banner year in 2016. The group recently won two GMA Dove Awards for Southern Gospel Artist of the Year and their single “I Am Blessed” winning Southern Gospel Song of the Year. The group also took home two Diamond Awards last month, and this past April was awarded two Absolutely Gospel Music Awards.
The group is in the early planning stages for a new recording. It is tentatively scheduled for an early Spring 2017 release.
