Show Hope Presents: “An Evening With Amy Grant & Steven Curtis Chapman” for Exclusive Run, Feb. 16 through Feb. 28.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – January 28, 2016 – Two Christian music icons are teaming up this spring, as Amy Grant and
Steven Curtis Chapman have announced plans for their first-ever co-headlining tour. “Show Hope Presents: An Evening With Amy Grant and Steven Curtis Chapman” will make an exclusive month-long run in February, opening Feb. 16, in Davenport, Iowa and hitting seven major markets across the U.S. before wrapping up in Greenville, S.C. on Feb. 28.
Fellow Nashvillians and long-time colleagues within the music industry, Grant and Chapman have both reached phenomenal career milestones as multiple Grammy® Award-winners and platinum-selling recording artists. Their recording catalogs have peppered the musical landscape for several decades with hits that have become favorites among multiple generations. And yet, the two have never headlined a tour together until now.
“I can’t believe it’s taken us this long to go on the road together,” Amy shares. “Steven is one of the greatest musical storytellers, and we’re looking forward to peeling back the years through these songs because it has been a great ride so far. We’re going to have so much fun!”
“I’m a huge fan of Amy’s so I can’t wait for this opportunity to share the stage and share each other’s songs,” Steven adds. “It’s something we’ve talked about and dreamed about doing for a long time, so I’m really excited it’s finally happening.”
