Singer/Songwriter Daryl Boyer has something to be thankful for this week. He is happy to announce his single, “Never Looking Back” has suddenly jumped from #19 up to #3 on the Christian Music Weekly’s (CMW) Christian Country Chart. The heartfelt song, originally released to Christian AC has found an unexpected home on Christian Country shows and stations across the USA. The single debuted at #19 on the CMW chart, holding that spot for three weeks and then suddenly surged all the way up to #3 last week.
Boyer, whose sound has been compared to Third Day, Zach Williams, and Jason Gray released his previous 2016 album, The Cleansing to glowing reviews and media coverage in such outlets as Breathecast, Hallels, UK’s Crossrhythms and “Never For Nothing”, is currently prepping for the release of his next album, Love Reigns in 2018.
Boyer will be featured on a one hour live radio interview on Tuesday, November 28 at 6am PST/9am EST on Today’s Christian Country KYMS with Kay Poland to talk about the success of his new single, and what God is currently doing in his life.
Recently, Boyer was also honored to take part in the “Puerto Rico Disaster Relief Benefit Concert” on October 28, sponsored by WXGN 90.5 FM and Word of Life Christian Fellowship in Ocean City, New Jersey.
“Never Looking Back” expresses the themes of “knowing that God can take your pain and redeem it with His perfect love and calming Presence, and surrendering yesterday to Christ opens a door to a brighter tomorrow” reflects Boyer, who both penned and performed the song.
With strong currents of contemporary southern rock running through the guitar and potent vocals, the AC/Rock ballad, “Never Looking Back” tells the story of a woman turning to prayer at key crisis moments of her life, while the bridge affirms “You see the Lord declares us priceless, while the world declares us weak, By the precious blood of Jesus, we find victory.”
Boyer has contacted Grammy nominated producer, Jim Allison (Reba McEntire, LeeAnn Rhimes, Gretchen Wilson and Billy Ray Cyrus) about producing the next single.
“It is important that in the difficult seasons of life we learn to draw near to the Lord and His promises. We must let His love, and comfort carry us through as our Savior and deliverer.” reflects Boyer about the themes in the song.”As we let it go and trust Jesus, He will restore us. He just simply asks us to keep our eyes on Him. In all my years of striving, I have suddenly seen the success that God has orchestrated, trumping all my efforts. My faith and hope is fixed in a truly amazing God.”
AC and Christian Country Radio can listen and access the single through PlayMPE.
“Never Looking Back” is available for purchase on iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon Music. and at the artist’s website.
