    Love Can Do by Amy Grant from The Collection is a great song, but not quite the classic that Stay For Awhile is. The Chris Eaton song is great and the Vision album is a true classic album in CCM.

    Hi, thanks so much for this post. I have been looking for old CCM rock charts online for ages but these one you posted are the only ones I have ever found. Do you have any others from the golden era of Christian Rock 1985-1995?

    There are other threads in this forum, and also check out the Jesus Music Facebook groups and search for them.

    Just stumbling across this thread now. I know it's pretty late, but I thought I should let you know that I have access to the CCM charts from 1978 to 2002. If this is something you (or anyone else in the forum) is interested in, send me a private message, and I can email you a Microsoft Access file that includes peak positions, chart runs, etc. for the various formats (CHR, AC, Inspo, Rock, etc.).
