Here’s What Rob Wagman is Saying…

“Maverick City “Promises” is proving a pattern we’ve seen in the past with Elevation’s O Come To The Altar and Rattle or One Sonic Society’s Great Are You Lord, where the consumption of the past, and familiarity in the church will WORK FOR YOU and NOT against you as the singles work their way to radio.” – Rob Wagman’s Moneyball Chart
