Steven Curtis Chapman delves into some of his favorite hymns and fan-favorite hits on a new CD released exclusively through Cracker Barrel Old Country Store®. Deep Roots, a 12-track collection, was recorded in Chapman’s hometown of Lexington, Ky. and features guests vocals from his father, Herb Chapman Sr., brother Herb Chapman Jr., son Caleb Chapman and daughter-in-law Jillian Edwards Chapman. Bluegrass legend Ricky Skaggs also contributed his musical talents to the song “What A Friend We Have In Jesus.” Deep Roots can be purchased in all Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® locations, as well as crackerbarrel.com, iTunes and Amazon.
Chapman has earned 57 Dove Awards and numerous No. 1 hits on Christian radio. “Not only does Chapman’s highly-recognized talent and devotion to making a positive impact make for a wonderful partnership with Cracker Barrel, but the music he’s been able to produce sounds outstanding and makes for a fantastic collection of songs we hope folks will enjoy,” says Cracker Barrel Marketing Manager Julie Craig.
“I’m so honored to have three generations of Chapmans and my ‘bluegrass big brother,’ Ricky Skaggs sing along with me on this recording,” says Chapman. “I had the privilege of playing music with some of the best ‘pickers’ in the world while making the record I’ve always wanted to make, thanks to a collaboration with my friends at Cracker Barrel and plenty of biscuits on hand. As folks listen, I hope they will be inspired by the messages in each song.”
