Singer/Songwriter Daryl Boyer's single "Never Looking Back" topped the Christian Music Weekly's (CMW) Christian Country Chart at #1 last Wednesday. This is the first #1 song for the artist, who is currently at work on his next album, Love Reigns.
The heartfelt song, originally released to Christian AC found an unexpected home on Christian Country shows and stations across the USA, debuting at #19 on the CMW chart and climbing to the top spot last week. "Never Looking Back" tells the story of a woman turning to prayer at key crisis moments of her life, while the bridge affirms "You see the Lord declares us priceless, while the world declares us weak, By the precious blood of Jesus, we find victory."
Boyer, whose sound has been compared to Third Day, Zach Williams, and Jason Gray released his previous 2016 album, The Cleansing to glowing reviews and media coverage in such outlets as Breathecast, Hallels, UK's Crossrhythms and Never For Nothing, is currently prepping for the release of his next album, Love Reigns in 2018. Although his first single from the album surged to #1 on the Christian Country charts, Boyer's music is diverse, with elements of rock, AC, and worship overtones.
He has recently announced an ongoing campaign with the popular crowdfunding platform Indiegogo for his friends and fans to assist in raising the funds needed to finish and release Love Reigns, of which "Never looking Back" is the first hit single.
"The concept of Love Reigns is about redirecting a skewed sense of what love looks like in the world's eyes, to God's view of love. Love like the Father's love is unconditional and does not seek to satisfy self. The love of God sacrifices a self gaining mentality. Once we know that the Father loves us unconditionally for who we are as sons and daughters we are able to let go of a mindset that chases measuring up.", Boyer reflects.
"The real measurement of love flows from the Father's presence in and through us. Therefore Love Reigns as the Father's love is known in and through us. With this album we intend to break down the understanding of pure and unconditional love, the way the Father wants to see it expressed. I am excited to share this album, with these new songs with the world, to see the truth of God's love released and revealed in a greater way", Boyer affirms.
