“The Borrowed Tomb” Goes Number 1 for April
The Kingdom Heirs are once again atop the Southern Gospel charts with their song “The Borrowed Tomb” reaching number 1 for the month of April. The closing ballad to their album Redeeming the Time has seen a steady rise on the Southern Gospel charts and finally claimed the top spot.
While the group was overjoyed at the news, it came as a bit of a surprise. “It’s a song we love to perform at Dollywood and on the road,” commented baritone and emcee, Steve French, “and to know folks want to hear it on the radio too makes this one very special.”
For the quartet, the message of the song is more important than how it performs on the charts. “Dianne Wilkinson and Rebecca Peck wrote a powerful song that really captures why we do this – because we serve a risen Savior,” continued French. “Those two are incredibly gifted and we’re thankful they have shared some amazing songs with us.”
Gratitude and praise did not stop with the songwriters as the quartet gushed over the efforts of record company Crossroads Music, Crossroads President Chris White, Jim Stover, and countless listeners around the country. Added French, “We’ve had a great start to the year – a wonderful tour, a return to Dollywood, and now this. We’re so thankful for God’s blessings, this song being His latest.”
The song is the quartet’s second hit from Redeeming the Time – which also features October 2013′s number 1, “Just Beyond the Sunset”. You can see The Kingdom Heirs performing regularly at Dollywood now through the end of the year.
