Hendersonville, TN — Daywind writer, Gerald Crabb, has reached a pivotal milestone that many writers can only dream of. During a reception held at BMI earlier this month, the Dove Award-winning songwriter was honored with a plaque commemorating his 25th #1 song on the Singing News Top 80 chart. The song, “I Choose Christ,” was recorded by Karen Peck & New River and reached the top position for the July 2017 charts. Crabb’s co-writers on the hit, Sue Smith and Jason Cox, celebrated milestones of their own, with their 10th & 5th #1 song, respectively.

Gerald Crabb belongs among those exceptional songwriters. As his publisher and his friend, I am so very proud of him for this truly significant achievement.
