Updated: Jul 3


Go to the Top is the tenth studio album by the Christian rock duo DeGarmo & Key. It was released on June 12, 1991 by ForeFront/Benson Records. The album was produced by Ron W. Griffin.


D&K reunited after both released their solo albums in 1990. D&K developed and

published a Bible study curriculum to go with the album. They also released a video album of the same name on VHS filmed on location in their hometown of Memphis, Tennessee featuring six music videos and in between the videos, there are highlights of the city of Memphis, such as Elvis Presley's Graceland mansion, the legendary Sun Studios, Beale Street and many others . There have also been some personnel changes with the band as long-time drummer Greg Morrow and second guitarist Steve Taylor are gone. Playing on the album, in addition to Tommy Cathey on bass guitar and vocals, is Roscoe Meek of Geoff Moore's band The Distance on rhythm guitar with musicians Carl Marsh and Kevin Rodell handling the drum programming arrangements.


Go to the Top peaked at number 10 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart.
