Steven Curtis Chapman, Gospel music’s most awarded artist, continues bringing home the hardware with his 59th Gospel Music Association Dove Award Tuesday night for Bluegrass / Country / Roots Album of the Year, Deeper Roots: Where the Bluegrass Grows.
Co-produced by Chapman and Brent Milligan, Deeper Roots: Where the Bluegrass Grows, landed at No. 1 on the iTunes Country Albums chart and is Chapman’s second No. 1 Billboard Bluegrass Album. Recently, Chapman celebrated his 49th No. 1 single with “Dive” featuring Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame member Ricky Skaggs.
Chapman, a five-time GRAMMY®-winner, released Deeper Roots via his SCSEE Music Label. Deeper Roots serves as the sequel to Chapman’s 2013 Billboard No. 1 Bluegrass Album Deep Roots, released exclusively with Cracker Barrel.
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.” 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.”
