Christian Music News, New Christian Music News "Silver Bells," featuring the dynamic trio made up of multi-platinum GRAMMY® winners Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith, along with Marc Martel, takes the No. 1 spot at national Christian radio this week. The reimagined version of the 1951 Christmas classic climbed to the top of Billboard's Monitored AC and Mediabase AC Christian charts.  In addition, the track was the number one most added AC song three weeks straight, with nearly 90 stations playing the single, and has the biggest audience for a new Christmas song. Check out the exclusive premieres for "Silver Bells" on People.com (video) and Parade (audio) magazine.  

"We had so much fun recording 'Silver Bells' and being able to perform it live together during the Christmas tour has been extra special," says Smith. "For the song to go No. 1 as well, that's just something we never expected but sure are grateful for, and are so happy the fans are enjoying it too." 

"I haven't had this experience in ten years," adds Grant. "What a fun way to end the decade with a No. 1 song recorded with two friends." 

"What a mind-blowing honor, not only to have the chance to record with Amy and Michael, but to also have that song reach No. 1," says Martel. "This is my first, and what a perfect end to an amazing year!" 

In addition, Grant and Smith recently reunited to co-bill their popular Christmas circuit this holiday season. Joined by special guest Martel, the multi-city tour was presented by Balsam Hill® and showcased selections spanning the artists' expansive repertoires and combined the vast collection of critically acclaimed holiday albums between them.
