Earnest Pugh’s single “I Need Your Glory” breaks through urban radio

Earnest Pugh

Gospel singer Earnest Pugh continues to make big strides in his career. His recent No. 1 Billboard gospel radio smash “I Need Your Glory” has now crossed over to the urban adult contemporary radio charts. This week the song moves up to #23 on the Mediabase Urban AC chart and No. 30 on Billboard’s Adult R&B Airplay chart. 

“It’s an honor to be embraced by Urban AC radio,” Pugh says in a news release. “This milestone in my career solidifies my belief that in bad times people gravitate to The Good News and good ole hard work pays off!”

A Memphis native who was mentored by Grammy Award winning choir leader O’Landa Draper back in the 1990s, Pugh released his first solo CD in 2006 and showed off his five-octave vocals on the radio hit “Wrapped Up, Tied Up, Tangled Up.” After years of making respectable forays into gospel, Pugh finally hit it big in 2009 with his No. 1 smash “Rain on Us.” He followed-up with other radio chart smashes such as “The Great I Am” and “Perfect Peace” before hitting No. 1 again with “I Need Your Glory.” For more information, go to
