Doyle Lawson – first bluegrass #1 in Singing News

Sing News Chart for September 2008Doyle Lawson in in a celebratory mood today. Help Is On The Way, the title track from his latest Gospel bluegrass release, has the #1 spot on the Top 80 Radio Airplay chart published in the September 2008 issue of Singing News magazine.

Not only is it Doyle’s first #1 in Singing News, but he believes that it is also the first time a bluegrass song has reached the pinnacle of this highly respected chart.

The magazine, billed as “The Voice Of Southern Gospel Music,” has published monthly for almost 40 years.

Congratulations to Doyle – and to bluegrass music – for this achievement.
