NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 6, 2013) - Less than one month after going for adds at Christian inspirational radio stations throughout the U.S., 'Don't Waste The Heartache' from new artist Victoria Griffith has taken the top spot on the Christianradiochart.com chart.

"Don't Waste The Heartache," the second single from Griffith's debut CD, Wellspring In The Wilderness, was written by Michael Puryear, who also produced the project, and Geoff Thurman. The song was released to radio May 6.

"My heart is overjoyed that I have a second No. 1 single," Griffith says. "I'm so grateful that Christian radio is embracing my music! I am truly speechless about this news!"

"I love working with Victoria. Not only is she doing well at radio, but the programmers love the honesty and sincerity that pours from her heart," says Jeff McLaughlin of A-Sides Radio Promotion, the company promoting the single at Christian radio. "When you put Christ first, He will do the rest and that is exactly what is happening with this artist. 'Don't Waste The Heartache' is another well-deserved No. 1 hit from Victoria Griffith!"

Wellspring In The Wilderness released independently March 5, the week that Griffith attended the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) annual conference in Nashville. While at NRB, the vocalist was interviewed by numerous Christian media outlets, including Campus Crusade for Christ Radio, The Christian Post and Sonoma Christian Home. Griffith left Nashville and rounded out her Street Week activities with appearances on WATC-TV's flagship show, Atlanta Live in Atlanta, and Niteline on WGGS-TV in Greenville, S.C. She then traveled to the Pittsburgh area where she appeared on Cornerstone Television Network's His Place, Focus 4 and World-Wide Worship interACTIVE.

Griffith's successes with her new CD come after a circuitous life path that included learning she was pregnant while recording the 10-song CD, followed soon after by the news that she had a brain tumor which required immediate removal. Thankfully, Griffith emerged successfully on the other side with a riveting testimony and a CD filled with songs that exude hope and grace, and perfectly showcase the singer's stunning, country-inflected vocals.

About Victoria Griffith:
Griffith, who as a child was "discovered" by her cousin's voice teacher when she tagged along to a singing lesson, is known throughout her home state of Alabama for her powerful voice. After college, she began teaching English, but kept hearing "a still, small voice" telling her not to give up on the musical talent God had given her. "It was more of a a gentle but irresistible tug at my heart," Griffith explains. "It was an undeniable sense that this was something that I needed to do."

Supported by the blessing and encouragement of her husband, Griffith embarked on the adventurous journey of faith that would culminate in the release of her stunning debut CD, Wellspring In the Wilderness.
