Top 10 Worship Songs Predicted To Debut In The Next CCLI Top 100

Posted on March 14, 2018

The CCLI Top 100 is a go-to song list for many artists, publishers and worship leaders alike. Churches report their song usage twice a year, and then CCLI puts out a list of the top 100 songs. The CCLI Top 100 list is unique from the PraiseCharts Top 100 in a number of areas. Most importantly, CCLI reports when a song is used, where as PraiseCharts is just tracking when a song gets purchased. Furthermore, the PraiseCharts Top 100 is based on results from the last 365 days, and is updated regularly.

The CCLI Top 100 list is updated twice a year, and reflects six months of reporting. At any particular time, the CCLI Top 100 list is usually six to twelve months behind.  Because of this, we have an opportunity to analyze the most recent list from CCLI, compare that to the most current list from PraiseCharts, and highlight the most popular songs in PraiseCharts that are missing in CCLI. This gives a great insight into the kinds of songs that are shaping the progressive nature of contemporary worship all over the world. Here is a list of the top ten PraiseCharts songs from the last year (as of March 14, 2018) that are missing from the latest CCLI Top 100 list (updated Fall 2017). We predict that these songs will show up for the first time in the Spring 2018 CCLI Top 100 song list.
