    So that makes 3 people this year (that I know of) who have recorded Chain Breaker. Steve Ladd, Triumphant, and now the Vocal Band. Talk about wearing out a good song. I wonder who the next group will be to “jump on the bandwagon”.

      I don’t mind the cover versions, but I wish they’d go in a different musical direction from the Zach Williams original.

    Good point, David. Maybe kind of like the Ball Brothers did with It’s Gonna Be A Good Day. Totally different sound than the version that Gold City sang.

    Make it 4. Michael English recorded it on his new album as well…

    It’s a terrific song, but I’m surprised that this many covers have come out so swiftly. Triumphant’s is still best in my eyes – the “original cover”, if you will.

    Triumphant just announced that “Chain Breaker” will be the number one song for a second consecutive month in Singing News. That has only happened one time in the past ten years, and I couldn’t even hum a bar of the last song that did it.

    (Just to be clear, I can hum the song that did it in July-August 2007, but not the one that did it in between.)
