Singer, songwriter and worship leader Matt Maher has the most popular Christian Christmas song this holiday season. Maher's "Glory (Let There Be Peace)" was the #1 song on Billboard's Christian Airplay over the Christmas weekend.
"At the heart of the holiday season is the announcement of peace on earth, and to not be afraid," Maher says. "More than ever, we all need the message of peace, and a life not governed by fear... I am so grateful to everyone at radio for the support this holiday season."
According to Billboard, Maher's song jumped from #11 to #1, making this the biggest surge since Big Daddy Weave's "Redeemed" bounded 12-1 on the chart dated Jan. 12, 2013. "Glory" is Maher's second Christian Airplay No. 1, following "Because He Lives (Amen)," which topped the April 4, 2015, chart. The singer-songwriter has collected seven top 10s, starting with his debut, "Your Grace Is Enough" (No. 4, 2008).
