Alert, alert, alert. WOW Hits’s facebook page released the official cover of WOW Hits 2019 Deluxe Edition (as seen above), so I guess that means the official track listing is not too far away. Usually, for a album release of WOW Hits around September/October, the official track listing is around August sometime. So, not too long to go. With reference to hits and everything that has been released til now, what do I reckon should be on WOW Hits 2019? Read on to find out. Happy predicting! You can also read about our previous predictions, here, here, here and here!

Around a year ago I released my predictive list of who I reckon would have been recognised at the 2017 Dove Awards. While many predictions were spot on, others were wayward, but like with any prediction, figuring out what are the biggest songs, albums and everything else within the year can be a big feat. And its obvious nominations will always favour some artists and bypass others. That’s just the nature of it. And so, you can see the official nominations and the winners of the 2017 Dove Awards on the official website. And right now, what is the time again? Yes, around this time last year we posted Dove Award 2017 predictions (not for every category, but for a handful), and so around this time in March 2018, we unveil a handful of Dove Award 2018 predictions. Yes, I’m sure some predictions of ours will be wide of the mark, but I’m sure others will be spot on…just not sure which will be which.

Like it or not, WOW Hits is pretty much the most talked about Christian album release each year. Every year around September/October, we see Capitol CMG, Word Label Group and Provident Label Group come together to release a compilation of that year’s most charted music. And thus we are into the year of 2018 (just in the first week of January) and what does this mean? That the date for WOW Hits 2019 is coming closer. And with new songs releasing as singles from artists both new and old coming out each week, we as a site thought it would be fitting to start off 2018 with a WOW Hits 2019 prediction (our first prediction of WOW Hits 2019, which we released at the end of October 2018, can be viewed here!). Below are 39 songs that are currently getting success (or some that I think could get success in the future) that I think are shoe-ins for WOW Hits 2019 if it was collated now. But who am I to think that this version is final? There’s another 6-7 months before the official list releases. And I’m sure by that time, artists like Chris Tomlin, Francesca Battistelli, for KING AND COUNTRY, Brandon Heath, Third Day, MercyMe, Matthew West and Newsboys (all of which are absent from this WOW Hits 2019 prediction) are sure to be included in the official WOW Hits 2019 track list…so I guess, this list that I’m about to unveil is far from perfect…but it’s very solid if the WOW compilation were to be made now. Thus, what I have said before still stands now- maybe not just one 2 disc compilation at the end of the year cataloging the year’s best in CCM? Maybe 2 volumes (each with 2 discs) per year? Without further ado, here below is 365 Days of Inspiring Media’s second track list prediction for WOW Hits 2019, slated to release sometime in September/October 2018!

Hi everyone, how has your week been? Seeing that it’s late October yet again, and this time last year, we posted our first WOW HITS 2018 predictions, it’s time for us to predict…you guessed it, the track list for WOW Hits 2019. In fact, I’m sure you all are thinking about which songs are shoe-ins for next year’s compilation even now! Because, let’s be frank and honest here, WOW Hits has always been and will always be the most talked about Christian compilation album released in any year. So, what better time than now to make a prediction of WOW Hits 2019…sure probably half of my predictions will be correct (or maybe even less than half)…but, who knows. WOW Hits has always been known for placing dated songs on the annual WOW albums… So without further ado, here’s my stab at the tracklist for WOW Hits 2019. Some are independent artists, some are signed, some songs aren’t singles (yet!), but mind you, all of this is just speculation! Anyway, stay tuned to more predictions later this year and into next year! Happy predicting!

As you can see from the picture above (of which I sourced from Integrity Direct), the WOW Hits 2018 cover has officially been released…therefore the track listing for it shouldn’t be that far behind. We already know six artists that are certainties on the WOW compilation- Casting Crowns, TobyMac, Natalie Grant, Matt Maher, Chris Tomlin and for KING AND COUNTRY. So let us have a crack at guessing the other 33. So without further ado, here below is my final predictions for WOW Hits 2018 (Deluxe Edition). Feel free to comment below. Happy predicting (I fully expect the WOW Hits 2018 Deluxe Edition track list to be revealed sometime this coming week!).

So…it’s been about a couple more months since the last WOW Hits 2018 prediction. Gee, doesn’t time fly, right? Anyway, during that time, there have been many radio singles that have come and gone, and some that have been on the airwaves for the longest time ever (in a good way!)
Even though we already made a predicted list 3 times already for WOW Hits 2018 (you can view them here, here and here!), there’s plenty of new songs that have been revealed over the past while, so without further ado, here’s my next stab at WOW Hits 2018, and stay tuned to the final WOW Hits 2018 predictions in mid July! Happy predicting!

This is a special post. Normally when we post predictions, we have shared what we believe to be a likely list of songs to be included on WOW Hits albums, annual compilations released each year encompassing that particular year’s radio hits. And while we may never really get it all right, predictions can be very fun, especially figuring out which songs are ‘worthy’ of selection throughout the year. Now for this type of post- predictions for the Dove Awards. The Dove Awards are an annual ceremony honouring Christian music, recognising the outstanding achievements of songwriters, producers and songs within a window of time (usually a year). Established in 1969, the Dove Awards encompasses awards presented across a myriad of musical styles- from pop and rock, to worship and rap/hip hop. While my predicted list of nominees don’t show us all the full 40-something categories, I have decided to state my two cents worth on a fair few categories myself. While this list is merely a prediction, I reckon some of my category predictions (rock/contemporary album of the year… or even inspirational movie of the year) are spot on. Feel free to comment below, about which albums/songs etc you think could be nominated for certain categories in the upcoming Dove Awards, hosted in October 2016. Enjoy reading below and happy predicting!
