Lauded songwriter and producer Ben Glover has achieved his 40th No. 1 career single. Hitting this career accolade with Crowder‘s “Good God Almighty,” this is Glover’s second No. 1 with Crowder, after hitting the chart pinnacle for the first time with him in 2014 with “Come As You Are.”
Over twenty years after moving to Nashville to pursue music, Glover, who writes for Capitol CMG Publishing, is both a Grammy award-winning songwriter and GMA Dove award winner, as well as an NSAI awards recipient and ASCAP’s Christian Songwriter of the Year for five years since 2010. Co-writing MercyMe’s No. 1 “Even If,” additional chart-topping hits from Glover include songs recorded by award-winning artists Mandisa, Chris Tomlin, and for King & Country. With more than 400 songs penned to his name, other artists who have recorded his songs are The Backstreet Boys, Amy Grant & James Taylor, Joy Williams, NF, Thompson Square, Trace Adkins, Marc Broussard, and Clay Walker, to name a few.
Glover also co-wrote “Hard To Love” with country artist Lee Brice, which began a creative relationship between the two, eventually leading Glover to produce Lee’s latest album, Hey World.
“I came to Nashville over twenty years ago, had a five-minute artist career, and got dropped a couple of times early on,” Glover shares. “If you’d have told me then that I would someday be celebrating 40 No. 1 songs, I’d have thought you were either crazy or had some magic elixir that would allow me to live 500 years so I’d have enough time to do it. I’m just grateful I’ve had so many opportunities through the years to get to this place. I couldn’t have accomplished this sort of thing without the artists, producers, and writers willing to work with me and the champions who went to bat for me to convince all those people it would be worth it.”
“We couldn’t be more proud of our long relationship with Ben and getting to celebrate this incredible and unprecedented milestone with him,” says Brad O’Donnell, co-president of Capitol CMG. “Ben has always had an ability to draw out an artist’s unique voice and help them write their best songs. And now with ‘Good God Almighty,’ he’s done it again.”
Glover resides in Brentwood, Tennessee with his wife and two children.
