Third Day Simultaneously Lands Four Recordings on Rock Sales Chart

All four best-selling recordings released nationally by the
reigning Artist and Group of the Year Dove Award recipient and 2001 GRAMMY nominee, Third
Day, simultaneously landed this week on the SoundScan compiled Rock sales chart. The band’s
RIAA Gold-certified recording, Offerings – A Worship Album, held the number one position,
followed by Time in the number eight slot, Conspiracy No. 5 at number 22, and the group’s
self-titled debut, Third Day, at number 31. Combined to date, Third Day has now sold over 1.6
million recordings.
“This is a rare demonstration of product longevity and group popularity in our marketplace,” said
Robert Beeson, Essential Records president. “We continue to be awed by Third Day’s talent, as
well as their ability and desire to connect with their fans, inspiring this kind of wide-spread loyalty
and support.”
Along with this latest sales feat, Third Day has recently garnered a great deal of national media
attention. CNN World Beat ran a special focusing on Third Day Saturday, May 12, and Sunday,
May 13. The feature was secured following the band’s remarkable five Dove Award wins. A
further story about Third Day’s leading the 2001 Dove Award winners is also featured on CNN’s
World Beat website at
CNN’s web article and the broadcasted story both highlight the band’s unique success during this
year’s Gospel Music Association Dove Awards ceremony: Third Day lead the list of Dove Award
nominees with nine, and captured wins in five categories, more than any other group or artist. At
the ceremony held in Nashville April 26, the band won their first-ever awards for Group of the
Year and Artist of the Year, marking the first time in two decades that any artist has won both
categories in the same year.
With three GRAMMY nominations and 14 No. 1 songs, Third Day is poised for even greater
success as band members finish preliminary work on a new studio project, entitled Come
Together. The recording, which is the band’s first full-length studio release in over two years, is
currently slated to release November 6.
