Craig Morgan’s “The Father, My Son & the Holy Ghost” Goes to No. 1 on iTunes With Some Help From Blake Shelton, Ellen DeGeneres & More

Mission accomplished, Blake Shelton.

Country music’s most powerful social media influencer implored his 20.6 million Twitter followers to help Craig Morgan’s touching new song, “The Father, My Son & the Holy Ghost” reach No. 1 on the iTunes Country chart. And it worked.

From Sept. 9—the date of Blake’s first tweet referencing the tune—to Sept. 12, the song moved from No. 75 on the iTunes Country Songs chart to No. 1.

The tune also reached No. 1 on the all-genre iTunes Top Songs chart.

Blake mentioned Craig’s song in more than 20 tweets. He also got some of his famous friends involved via Twitter, including Ellen DeGeneres, Carson Daly, Meghan Trainor and more.

The new tune, which Craig penned and produced, honors his late son, Jerry Greer, who passed away after a boating accident in July 2016 at the age of 19.

“Come on everybody this song deserves to be number 1 at least on iTunes,” said Blake via Twitter on Sept. 9. “Tweet your friends, tag the song. All people need to do is hear it once. They will want to own it. This song deserves to be recognized.@cmorganmusic

“Ahhhhh!!!!!!! Y’all did it!!!!! Y’all did!!!” said Blake via Twitter on Sept. 12. “You gave @cmorganmusic and this song the shot it deserves! It’s a #1 Country song on @AppleMusic!!!”
