Nashville, TN (February 13, 2019)
Swift momentum continues for the hammer-swinging, tune-singing viral sensations The Singing Contractors as fans and critics resonate with the infectious duo’s uplifting release Working on a Building, Hymns & Gospel Classics with Gaither Music Group. The collection of unique renditions of beloved hymns and gospel classics debuted at No. 1 atop Billboard’s Music Video Chart across all genres, while also snagging the No. 1 spots on Nielsen SoundScan’s Christian Music Video chart and Southern Gospel Album chart. The album also secured the No. 2 slot on Nielsen SoundScan’s Christian Albums chart.
“We were on different job sites doing trim work and fixing drywall when we received the call about our DVD and CD going No. 1! It was so shocking that we both had to put the hammers and nail guns down for a moment and simply absorb the moment,” said Josh Arnett of The Singing Contractors.
“We are in disbelief yet we are so thankful,” added Singing Contractors’ Aaron Gray. “It’s unbelievable what God can do! It’s just as unbelievable that people want to hear two guys who wear big beards belt out a few tunes!”
Their recent chart success comes on the heels of their guest appearance on Fox & Friends, where the duo performed an a cappella version of their title track, along with a heartrending version of the patriotic tune “God Bless America.”
