In a nation in need of healing, Chuck Murphy's "Peace Be With You" is resonating with fans as holds steady as the #1 Billboard Heatseeker Album in its 7th week on the charts!
"Peace Be With You" is a song that starts off talking about a sibling rivalry. I quickly realized, as I was writing, it is also about our communities and our world. I have never lived any place in my life that did not need God's hand; the wish or blessing of peace; and for people to leave the places they visit, live, and work better than they found them. – Chuck Murphy
The song resonated so true to Murphy, it became the title track for his album, an album which broke into the Billboard Top 200 Chart at #197 in its 5th week of chart-topping successes. Holding steady at #1 on the Heatseeker Album Chart and #3 on the Americana/Folk Album Chart, it is obvious Chuck's message is one people across the nation need and want to hear.
