Nashville, TN - (October 20, 2020) -- GRAMMY ® winning artist Chris Tomlin lands his 17th career #1 single this week as "Who You Are To Me," featuring Lady A, from his #1 album Chris Tomlin & Friends, reaches the top spot on Billboard's Christian Airplay chart. The song was written by Chris, Charles Kelley, Dave Haywood, and Hillary Scott of Lady A.

"I've always said there are good songs, great songs, and God songs," Chris shared with Billboard's Jim Asker today. "When Hillary, Dave, Charles and I sat down to write, "Who You Are To Me" basically wrote itself. Now seeing how the song has grown so quickly and how it is impacting lives it is clear that this is one of those God songs. Personally, this song is so meaningful for me and I am so grateful to radio for the love and support."

"Being a part of this incredible project with Chris has been one of our greatest joys this year!," shared Hillary of Lady A. "We knew when we wrote this song with him that it felt special to us, but we've been truly floored by the response and support from the fans and radio to take it to #1. We're so grateful to Chris and his team for believing in this song and helping share its message."
