Brand New Exclusive Album Release, Deep Roots, Now Available
LEBANON, Tenn. (March 11, 2013) – Five-time GRAMMY® Award-winning
singer/songwriter Steven Curtis Chapman shows his roots in faith and
family run deep on the latest exclusive CD release from Cracker Barrel
Old Country Store®.  Deep Roots, a 12-track collection
of newly recorded hymns and Chapman’s fan-favorite hits, was recorded in
Chapman’s hometown of Lexington, Ky., and features guest vocal
appearances 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 stand-out talent on
the song “What A Friend We Have In Jesus.” Deep Roots can be purchased now in all Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® locations, as well as, iTunes and Amazon.
Having won 57 Dove Awards and achieved 47 No. 1 hits on Christian
radio, Chapman remains one of the most respected and relevant
inspirational artists of his time. On Deep Roots, fans
have the chance get newly-recorded versions of some of his most renowned
music. “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,’ Rick 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.”
