Phillips, Craig and Dean have reached another major milestone in their career, as their No. 1 single, “Revelation Song,” has received RIAA certified Gold status. The honor is bestowed on any recording that has sold 500,000 units. The single was No. 1 for 17 weeks on Billboard’s AC Monitored chart and also reached No. 1 on Billboard’s National Christian Audience chart, AC Indicator chart and Soft AC chart. The group’s label, Fair Trade Services, will present the trio with the official gold plaque later this month to mark the noteworthy event for the Dove-Award winning song.
“This significant achievement is a testimony to the enduring impact Phillips Craig and Dean have had on Christian music,” says Jeff Moseley, President, Fair Trade Services. “It is remarkable for a group with this legacy to continue to forge new paths for the future instead of resting on their laurels. These men, combined with this incredible song, have created a classic for generations to come. We are happy to celebrate with them and the writer of this song, Jennie Lee Riddle.”
“Years ago when Phillips, Craig and Dean started, I could not have imagined that we would still be making music 23 years later, much less that radio and the our listeners would still be playing and listening. It is an honor to have achieved this accomplishment and to have relevance at this point in our career. We are thankful to God, the wonderful people who still download and listen to our music, and to Christian radio for giving us a voice for all these years. Thanks to Fairtrade for their support, to Bernie Hermes for an incredible arrangement, and to Jennie Lee Riddle for a great song to sing.” – Phillips, Craig and Dean
