Stephen Curtis Chapman

Steven Curtis Chapman will play the Ryman Feb. 22 with the Afters and Josh Wilson. Tickets for the Nashville show go on sale Dec. 6. Chapman will be performing songs from his latest CD, The Glorious Unfolding. The CD is his 18th, and his first studio album of all originals in seven years. Highlights from the new project include the song “Together,”  which Chapman wrote for his wife Mary Beth.

“In October, we celebrate our 29th anniversary,” he says, acknowledging the past five years since their youngest daughter (Maria Sue) was killed in a tragic accident. “Statistics show that 90% of marriages don’t survive the loss of a child. The fact that we are together celebrating 29 years of marriage is a testimony to God’s faithfulness and God’s grace.”
