In a resurgence of momentum, "There Will Be One Day," the current single from Dove Award-winning recording artist and speaker Cheri Keaggy's current CD, the independently released So I Can Tell, has hit the Top 10 on the  Christian Music Weekly (CMW) INSPO chart. The single also sits at No. 14 on the Billboard Christian Soft AC/INSPO chart. The  new top charting positions return the single to an upward climb after the song hitCMW's Top 10 and Billboard's Top 20 in May.

"Cheri Keaggy's song 'There Will Be One Day' is getting such a great response from our listeners. Everyone can relate to this song because we all have things we struggle with or are dealing with and this song reminds us that there is coming a day with no more sorrow, no more cancer, no more pain, no more loss," says Rodney Baylous, program director at Joy! 102.5 WOLC, in Princess Anne, Md. "Cheri's song is one of true hope that our listeners are responding to because it remind us that all our problems will be replaced when we see Jesus and spend eternity with Him!"

"Every so often, a song comes along that is lyrically strong and scripturally well-versed, matched perfectly to an inspiring and pleasantly hummable tune, and performed so well by the artist that it almost seems obvious the song was created by and for her to sing. Such is the case with Cheri Keaggy and 'There Will Be One Day,'" comment Paul and Vickie Hafer of The Lighthouse FM 89.3/105.9 in St. Mary's, Ga. 

So I Can Tell is Keaggy's first CD since her independent 2007 release, Because He First Loved Us. Keaggy draws on the encouragement of Scripture and her utter reliance on the comforting power of God to create an honest, engaging recording that is reflective of her emergence from a difficult season in life.

"When God has brought you through something, when He's shown up in God-sized ways, you can't help but testify," says Keaggy of the new songs. "This is my 'beauty from ashes' project."

So I Can Tell was released on the 18-year anniversary of Keaggy's 1994 Sparrow Records release, Child of the Father.
