“As a boy from Kentucky who grew up on Bluegrass music, to get to make a Bluegrass record with some of the best musicians in the world and have my dad, my brother, my son, Ricky Skaggs and Gary Levox sing on it with me…that was a dream come true. To have that record be nominated for a Grammy…I couldn’t even dream up something that amazing! I’m so honored and so grateful!” —Steven Curtis Chapman
Deeper Roots was produced by Chapman and Brent Milligan, engineered by Milligan and Brent King, mixed by Milligan, King and Sean Moffitt and mastered by Brad Blackwood at Euphonic Masters. The homage to the Kentucky native’s rural heritage features a mixture of familiar hymns, fan-favorite hits and brand-new songs.

The platinum-selling singer-songwriter also celebrated his 49th career No. 1 on Deeper Roots as the lead single “Dive,” featuring Ricky Skaggs, topped the Bluegrass Today Weekly Airplay Chart. “Dive” was originally released on Chapman’s GRAMMY®-winning album Speechless.
