Chapman is the first artist to achieve the feat in the Christian industry, and shares the historic achievement with just a few select artists including Madonna, George Strait and Conway Twitty. His single “His Eyes” from 1988’s Real Life Conversations album first put Chapman on the course to his plethora of No. 1s, a list that also includes “I Will Be Here,” “The Great Adventure,” “Dive,” “Live Out Loud” and “For The Sake Of The Call.”
“We are so honored and excited to be a part of Steven’s 50th No. 1 song with ‘Don’t Lose Heart,'” says Holly Zabka, President, Provident Entertainment/Sony Music. “This unprecedented and monumental achievement for Steven is a testament to the incredible artist and songwriter he is and can only be outshined by the countless lives that have been changed by his music.”
“I’m completely blown away by the support for this song and for my music, even after so many years,” Chapman exclaims. “To ever have a No. 1 song at radio as an artist/songwriter is a dream come true, and to have fifty is simply unbelievable! This only happens because of an amazing team and a community of friends around me who have believed in the unbelievable. I’m grateful and humbled beyond words.”
Chapman’s single “Don’t Lose Heart” was released in late 2022 and was the most-added song at radio for three straight weeks. As the first single from his most recent album, Still, Chapman was inspired to write the song through the journey of grief and loss he and his family have traveled. He released a new version of the tune earlier this month featuring Mitchell Tenpenny.
Chapman is the most-awarded artist in Christian music history. With 59 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, five Grammys and an American Music Award, he has sold more than 11 million albums with 10 RIAA-Certified Gold or Platinum albums to his credit.
Fans will get the chance to hear many of his 50 chart-toppers when he hits the road on his new “Still Tour” this Friday, March 3. The new tour will visit 24 markets throughout the spring.
