Dating to the June 2003 launch of the Christian Airplay chart, tobyMac moves into a tie for the fourth-most leaders with Chris Tomlin and Matthew West. MercyMe has the most (17), followed by Jeremy Camp and Casting Crowns (11 each).

TRIBBETT'S THIRD NO. 1 Meanwhile, Tye Tribbett adds his third No. 1 on Gospel Airplay as "Anyhow," which he co-authored, pushes 2-1, up 3% in plays.

It's Tribbett's second consecutive Gospel Airplay leader, after "We Gon' Be Alright" led for a week last September. Before that, he hadn't topped the list since 2006, when "Victory" began a three-week reign that September.
