Has ApologetiX had any national hits?
Yes, believe it or not! We don't watch the national charts as avidly as we might, but we're aware of the following singles and albums charting in the major publications that publish or have published national Christian music charts, R & R Magazine, ChristianBEATS/American Christian Music Journal and CCM.
NOTE: The following list does not include how various songs have done on individual stations, but we can tell you that our very first top 40 charting song was "Read Ephesians" on WITR in Rochester NY in the mid-90's, and our first #1 charting song was "Choirboy" on WITR in Rochester NY in 2000.
