'Word of God' From Husband & Wife Duo Alabaster Grace Debuts at #4 on Louder Than The Music Singles Chart

Oct 24 2021

"Word of God," the latest radio single from husband and wife duo Alabaster Grace, debuted at the No. 4 position and has spent two weeks in the Top 5 on the Louder Than The Music Singles Chart.

The song has been in good company, sharing the top chart positions with singles by Martin Smith (former Delirious frontman), Moriah (Top 10 Billboard charting Christian recording artist and the wife of Joel Smallbone of for KING & COUNTRY), and seven-time Billboard Top 30 charting songwriter and indie artist Devin Williams.

"I am so excited for 'Word of God' charting," says Kathryn Livingston, Client Services Manager for Westar Media Group. "It is well deserved for a great song with an inspiring message. We're so excited for the growth of this song and Alabaster Grace."

“Great news to hear that 'Word of God' is in the Top 10 of new singles. God is ministering through Alabaster Grace," says Colleen Dick, General Manager, The Word in Praise: Contemporary Christian Music WWIP 89.1 FM.

Brad and Joanie Perry-together known professionally as Alabaster Grace-have committed their creativity, intellect, and passion to create worship music that is thoughtful, insightful, and reverent.

"Our hopes and prayers are that everyone hearing this song will be drawn close to Jesus," says Brad, an award-winning former NASA rocket scientist as well as the duo's guitarist and guitar arranger. Brad insists that while music ministry is not rocket science, it is no less important and warrants just as much thought, focus, and precision. While he used to train astronauts for their shuttle missions and was on the design team for the International Space Station, today, his focus revolves around worship.

The eclectic “Word of God” is as musically intricate as it is lyrically intriguing. Exploring Messianic rhythms as it extols Yeshua (Jesus Christ) as Messiah, Redeemer, and King, the song is thoughtfully crafted and meticulously executed.

The song was penned by Joanie, an educator as well as the duo's singer and primary songwriter, while Brad wrote the guitar parts. Together, Joanie and Brad further developed the song and crafted the arrangement along with multiple Dove Award-winning producer Chris Bevins (producer and keyboards for Selah, Salvador, Jaci Velasquez), who brought the song to life.

In addition to serving as keyboardist, Bevins, in turn, brought in some of Nashville's other finest studio musicians for the recording, including drummer Dan Needham (Amy Grant, Jeremy Camp, Michael McDonald, Sting), guitarist Mike Payne (Casting Crowns, Francesca Battistelli, Mandisa, Lauren Daigle, Natalie Grant), and bassist Jacob Lowery (Gaither Vocal Band, Seth & Nirva).

“Word of God” was birthed out of a time of Bible study, employing rich, acoustic Middle Eastern-style chord progressions that connect listeners to the Holy Land, where Christ was born, served, and eventually laid down his life for the sins of the world. Drawn from the first chapter of the Gospel of John, it reflects the awesome concept that the Word was with God in the beginning, and the Word was God.

“As I moved through the writing process, I expanded on the names of God,” says Joanie. “That ultimately led to examining what our Lord has done for us. He laid down His life for us all as the Lamb of God! The Gospel of John is just so rich. Our prayer is that people will hear the song and want to delve deeper into the Word of God. We think the Gospel of John is a great place to start.”

With its beautiful vocals, acoustic flavors, and world-infused rhythms, “Word of God” is striking a resounding chord with a world that is hungry for answers.
