GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan, April 29 /Christian Newswire/ -- Wayburn Dean's rapid success with his fourth solo single, Through The Rain continues to prove that there has never been a better time to be an independent musician. During the first week of release the song tied as the "Most Added" song with multi-million selling artist Stephen Curtis Chapman on the Radio & Records (R&R) Soft AC/ Inspirational chart. Through the Rain has now jumped from number five to number three on both the R&R charts and the Christian Radio Weekly (CRW) charts.
"It has been said that at any given time, individuals are headed toward a storm, in the throws of a storm, or just coming out of a storm," says Dean. "When I'm on the road traveling, I see so many people going through tough times, whether it's financial challenges, loss of loved ones, or relationship issues; people are hurting. Through The Rain was an opportunity to write songs that would touch the soul and encourage people to draw near to God in these uncertain and fearful times."
Dean's vision with the CD was to inspire listeners on a deeper level with a fresh new sound. Over 350 stations throughout the country are playing Through the Rain, with an estimated audience of well over a million listeners. The CD features 10 songs including What Will Be Your Legacy, a poignant reminder that we all have an individual journey, but only one chance to write a lasting story.
Through the Rain is available now in three of the largest Christian bookstore outlets across the nation, including Lifeway Christian Stores, Parable Christian Stores, and Family Christian Stores. It can also be downloaded from iTunes or Walmart music downloads. Individuals interested in learning more can visit www.wayburndean.com.
