NASHVILLE, TN – (October 30, 2012) – Fervent Record’s Big Daddy Weave secures the top spot on both the NCA and Christian AC Monitored charts with “Redeemed” this week. Only five other songs have captured the No. 1 spot on the NCA chart this year. “Redeemed,” their second release from Love Come to Life, hit the No. 1 spot on the Christian AC Indicator chart last month making it the band’s sixth career No. 1. The song is also a hit on YouTube as fans have driven the video up to over one million views.

“When my friend Benji Cowart and I got together via Skype to write the song ‘Redeemed,’ I had no idea even when we finished the song that God would do what He's done with this!” commented Big Daddy Weave’s Mike Weaver. “In my mind it was just some closure to a really rough season in my walk with Jesus. Only God can take what we're most ashamed of and turn it into victory! I'm so thankful for the way He's used this song in the lives of so many and I continue to thank Him daily that the words of this song are true in my life.”

Big Daddy Weave is one of the top ten most played artists on Christian radio over the past decade. “Redeemed,” written by Mike Weaver and Benji Cowart, is their third best-selling song since the band’s formation in 2002. They are currently on “The Redeemed Tour” with recording artist Aaron Shust and are scheduled to hit the following cities:

November 1: Rome Capitol Theatre, Rome, NY
November 2: Hamburg Wesleyan Church, Hamburg, NY
November 3: Davis and Elkins College Auditorium, Elkins, WV
November 4: Cornerstone Christian Fellowship, Sparta, NC
November 12: Florida Strawberry Festival Expo Building, Plant City, FL
November 14: Milligan Assembly of God, Baker, FL
November 15: West Cobb Church, Marietta, GA
November 16: Dover Shores Baptist Church, Orlando, FL
November 17: Cambier Park Naples, Naples, FL
November 18: First Baptist Church of Orange Park, Orange Park, FL

Big Daddy Weave formed when Mike Weaver, Jay Weaver, Jeremy Redmon, Jeff Jones and Joe Shirk got together at the University of Mobile, and that original fivesome continues to write, produce, and inspire together. They stepped into the spotlight in 2002 with the release of their second album One and Only, which debuted in SoundScan’s Christian Top 5 and saw the group nominated as Dove Awards New Artist of the Year. Their 2010 album Christ Has Come won a Dove for Christmas Album of the Year, and they recently released their first greatest hits compilation, The Ultimate Collection. They have been honored at ASCAP's Christian Music Awards and were chosen for the WOW Hits compilations in five of the last six years. For more information on Big Daddy Weave, please visit
