Already hitting No. 1 on iTunes’ Rock chart and No. 6 on the overall Albums chart, the recording’s lead single “Born This Way” also speeds its way into the Top 35 at Active Rock and becomes a Christian Top 10 Rock hit. NASCAR also cranks up the song’s volume on ESPN beginning tomorrow and through mid-December as the single continues to roar up the radio charts while picking up nearly a quarter-of-a-million views and 3,700+ likes on YouTube.
