Moneyball National Chart

Chart Explain 11/16/2020

Just when it appeared Chris Tomlin had parked himself in the #2 spot until Christmas music took over, Tomlin had a surge that catapulted him to the #1 spot as Zach Williams slips a tad to #2.

Tauren Wells continues showing forward momentum, climbing to #4, while Graves Into Gardens stumbles slightly to the 5th spot.

Evidence from Josh Baldwin is on the brink of climbing into the Top 10, this week at #11.

All of the songs in the Top 15 are healthy, and there are a couple songs below 15 showing huge promise, including Casting Crowns, Andrew Ripp and Matt Maher’s version of Run To The Father.


The Moneyball Chart Methodology

Instead of one chart that focuses specifically on airplay, the Moneyball Chart combines airplay with sales, streaming and research for the purpose of finding the Momentum in Music, which is most times the differentiator on songs that stall and the ones that continue to chug along.

The Moneyball Chart is created based on a points system, where each column of information can add a maximum of up to 10 points for that column, with the points from each column adding to the overall totals.

The Moneyball Chart is an indicator of songs that are working; songs that are bearing fruit and therefore the Moneyball Chart, may have drastic differences from the charts you have become accustom to, revealing some artists and titles in a higher position much earlier than they show up on the airplay charts, and also, often songs that have moved to recurrent on most of our playlists continue to show fruit indicating that we may have retired those titles too early.

The Moneyball system works Nationally, or locally, so if you are interested in seeing what this information looks like specific to your station, specific to your market and your competitive situation, let us create a custom sample for your station specifically.  Email Rob Wagman [email protected]
