Nashville, TN (August 6, 2019)
Five-time GRAMMY®-winner, Steven Curtis Chapman, celebrates this chart-topping success of his Deeper Roots: Where the Bluegrass Grows album at a recent “No. 1 Song” party in Nashville.
The project has earned the multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter his first No. 1 on the iTunes Country Albums chart, second No. 1 Billboard Bluegrass Album and 49th No. 1 single with “Dive” featuring Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame member Ricky Skaggs.
Deeper Roots, released via Chapman’s SCSEE Music Label, serves as the sequel to Chapman’s 2013 Billboard No. 1 Bluegrass Album Deep Roots, released exclusively with Cracker Barrel. Along with Skaggs, Chapman was also joined by Gary LeVox of Rascal Flatts for a collaboration on “‘Til The Blue,” written by Chapman, Lori McKenna and Barry Dean.
The homage to Chapman’s rural Kentucky roots, which showcases Chapman’s “effortless ease with which he segues into the bluegrass genre, picking and grinning with the best of them” (Andrew Greenhalgh/CCM Magazine), includes a mixture of familiar hymns like “Life Is Like A Mountain Railroad” and “I’ll Fly Away,” fan-favorite hits including “Cinderella” and brand-new songs such as “‘Til The Blue” and “Where The Bluegrass Grows.”
