TobyMac’s new album is #1 on pop charts

English: Toby Mac

TobyMac has done something no overtly Christian artist in the Christian music scene has been able to do since Bob Carlisle hit the #1 spot on the Billboard 200 album chart in 1997: he scored the #1 slot of all albums for sale recently with “Eye On It.”

Other artists from the Christian music scene have done well on the “mainstream” charts, but only took their albums to the #2 slot recently– Casting Crowns, Red, and David Crowder Band.

TobyMac going to #1 will get a lot of people who’ve never heard of him and his band to say, “Who is TobyMac?”
