Matthew West Debuts at No. 1 with "My Story Your Glory"
Matthew West earns his second No. 1 on Billboard's Top Christian Albums chart as My Story Your Glory arrives at the summit on the March 4-dated list. The 22-song set comprises of two sides: Your Story embodies the countless stories fans have shared with the songwriter over the years as well as personal experiences and the second part, Your Glory, marks the first official Gospel worship album from the "Christian music star" (FoxNews).
Some of the songs included on the project are "Me On Your Mind," an "emotional song that speaks to the personal nature of God's love" (Grammy.com), "Greatest Hits," a heartwarming collaboration with country star, Granger Smith, "heartfelt ALS Awareness anthem" (HuffPost), "Wonderful Life," and more that showcase his "songs reflect his strong faith" (Forbes). The album's title track is currently in the Top 15 on the Billboard Christian Airplay Chart at number 11 and number 13 on the Mediabase Christian AC Chart.
"In a world driven by singles, I've always loved listening to complete albums of my favorite artists," shares West. "I am drawn to the idea of a record having a theme and a story that gets told from start to finish. My Story Your Glory is a 22 song double album divided into two themes. On My Story, I share the story of my life as well as the stories of peoples' lives who have inspired me along the way. Your Glory is my first ever worship project. Each of these songs is a worshipful response to how God is at work in the stories of our lives. In a lot of ways, I feel like I write a 22 song mission statement, a declaration to remind myself why I'm here on this earth and what really matters. It's my story for His glory."
