Best Of 2012 – Contest Winner, Most Played Radio Songs

wilburn2011familytiesisaacs2011whycantwe250I want to thank the 16 individuals who participated in the contest trying to guess what I would choose as the top five albums of 2012.  Of all 16 participants there was only one individual who was able to guess four out of five.  No one scored a perfect five and only one individual guessed four of five.  Congratulations to Wayne H for guessing the Perrys, Hoppers, Anchormen and LeFevre Quartet.  He wins two albums of his choice from my list of 48.

As I posted last year, I also wanted to use this post to list the 40 most played radio songs by yours truly for the year.  I listen to tons of Southern Gospel music in a year and at the start of each year I create playlists that track total number of listens of radio singles for that year to determine at year’s end what my most played songs were.  Here is the result for 2012.

  1. “Jesus Will” – Wilburn & Wilburn (Family Ties)
  2. “Waiting In The Water” – Isaacs (Why Can’t We)
