Jeremy Camp is the Soloist with the Most Christian #1 Hits

Jeremy Camp has achieved a new milestone in his career. He is the soloist with the most #1 records on Billboard's Christian Airplay chart. Recently, his latest single "Out of My Hands" reached the pinnacle position, giving Camp 11 #1 hits. Camp is ahead of Chris Tomlin and Matthew West who both have 10 #1 records.

MercyMe, who has 17 #1s under their belt, is the only artist (who is not a soloist) to have more #1s. Casting Crowns ties with Camp as they have had also amassed 11 #1 records for themselves. 

\Camp revealed that his latest #1 was crafted during a difficult time in his life. "This song "Out Of My Hands" came from a time where I really battled with trust and I was holding onto things too much. This song came out saying "God, I'm sorry for trying to hold things in my own hands because I'm not in control, you're in control." And when I finally let that go, the peace came."
