Frankin, Tenn – Provident Label Group pop/rock band Building 429 has officially broken a radio record. Their brand new single, “Impossible”, received an astounding 95 radio adds on add date, making this an all time first for the band.

“Everyone has that story of when something out of the ordinary happened in their career,” shares Andrew Patton, VP of Promotions, Provident Label Group. “The minute I heard ‘Impossible’ I knew it could be one of those moments. And as exciting as this record-breaking add date has been, I’m looking forward to even more exciting things ahead with this song and with Building 429.”

The GRAMMY-nominated and Dove Award-winning band debuted “Impossible” during the WinterJam Tour this past winter and spring playing to a record-breaking 600,000 fans over 47 dates. “Impossible” is the first single from their upcoming album slated to release September 25th.

    It’s a supremely frustrating to be a musician and a Christian. Why? Because of songs like “Impossible”. This is easily one of the cheesiest CCM songs of the past decade and likely one of the worst of all time.

    As a musician, I just can’t support this song or this band. If CCM can’t see how terrible this song is, something is very wrong.

    As a Chrisitian, I completely agree with the message. But the nausea-inducing choice of Carman-like melodies and instrumentals buries the truth.

      Thank you for your comments. CCM Magazine has no influence and/or impact on how much a song is played on Christian radio – a completely different set of decision makers and those with influence. We hope you continue to make music, and encourage you to find your sound and make it yours … who knows, maybe we’ll be sharing a similar story about you in the near future?!

        Thanks for your response, Kevin. I must apologize….by CCM I meant the music industry and movement, not the magazine.
