Best Radio Songs Of The 1980’s: #7

Lets continue the countdown of Southern Gospel’s best radio songs of the 1980’s with the song ranked 7th.

The Hemphills were at their peak in the early 1980’s garnering (4) #1 songs from the years 1980 to 1984.  Joel Hemphill was already recognized as one of Southern Gospel’s greatest songwriters by this point.

The biggest song of the group’s career came from the 1980 album, Workin’.  By December 1980, “He’s Still Working On Me” claimed the top spot on the Southern Gospel radio singles chart.  It would go on to spend eight months at #1.

Penned by Joel, “He’s Still Working On Me” is still sung in many children’s Sunday school classes every Sunday morning.
