COLTON DIXON'S "BUILD A BOAT" IS THE LONGEST RUNNING MEDIABASE CHRISTIAN AC #1 SONG OF 2022, SPENDING 7 CONSECUTIVE WEEKS IN THE TOP SPOT SO FAR

“To anyone who had anything to do with this song, thank you,” Dixon recently told Billboard. “Even more than having my No. 1 across these formats, I’m so grateful that so many people have applied the meaning of this song to their own story. Faith looks crazy sometimes, but the reward waiting on the other side far outweighs the sacrifice.”

Colton Dixon's "Build a Boat" is the longest running mediabase Christian AC #1 song of 2022, spending 7 consecutive weeks in the top spot so far. Here's what some of the top PD's in the country are saying - 

Four straight months as the #1 testing song on JOY FM! Clearly St. Louis has connected with this singable anthem about stepping out in faith.”
 -Jeremy Louis / 99.1 Joy! FM/ St. Louis, MO
 
“‘Build A Boat’ quickly became a hit from the moment we started playing it. A catchy tune that you can’t help to sing along to – with lyrics that hit just right – ‘Build A Boat’ is a smash and easily in our top five songs this year at WayFM! 
– Steve Shore / WayFM Network
 
“‘Build A Boat’ is literally a perfect song at the perfect time. We may be landlocked here in DFW, but my listeners are all aboard the Colton Dixon boat.”
- Mike Prendergast / 94.9 KLTY / Dallas, TX
