Cracker Barrel And Steven Curtis Chapman Celebrate #1 Chart Debut

Award-winning recording artist Steven Curtis Chapman’s new CD with Cracker Barrel Old Country Store ®, Deep Roots, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Albums Chart and #2 on the Contemporary Christian Chart. The CD, released on March 11, is available exclusively at all Cracker Barrel Old Country Store ® locations, iTunes, crackerbarrel.com and amazon.com.

Chapman had long dreamt of releasing a country/bluegrass-infused album that would allow him to revisit his Kentucky roots. He does just that on Deep Roots with all new recordings of several beloved hymns such as " What A Friend We Have In Jesus" featuring Ricky Skaggs and “ Life is Like a Mountain Railroad (Life’s Railway to Heaven),” featuring Herb Chapman Sr. and Herb Chapman, Jr. New versions of some of his greatest hits including “ His Eyes,” “ Be Still and Know,” and “ Cinderella,” are also featured.

GAC's Daryl Addison raves, "Though the songs on Deep Roots are filled with bright acoustic guitars, fluttering mandolin and some front porch dobro, Steven does an excellent job shaping his devotionals to the new sound." Country Weekly's David Guy adds, “' Be Still and Know' is much more contemporary here with some glorious harmonies and chord choices. Steven stands tall with his single-vocal performance of ' Rock of Ages.' ' He Touched Me,' made famous by Elvis Presley, is enhanced by the group vocals and the softness of the band."

"When Steven originally presented his idea of a collection of hymns mixed with original material involving multiple generations of the Chapman family, we thought it would be appealing to our guests," shares Cracker Barrel's Marketing Manager Julie Craig. "They have come to expect a variety of music in our stores and Deep Roots provides a unique, inspirational addition to our exclusive music program that guests of all ages have welcomed.”

Chapman echoes the sentiment, telling Billboard magazine's Chuck Dauphin, "I've been through so much in the last 25 years, and more recently in the last few years – from walking through the deep grief of losing my youngest daughter in an accident--and all of those things that have made those songs all the more important to me. To be able to include my dad and brother, and have them sing with me, my son, and daughter-in-law, and even my bluegrass 'big brother,' Ricky Skaggs make an appearance, this was a dream come true for me to get to record."

Chapman adds, “It’s an album I’ve dreamed about having the chance to record, and the planets – or should I say the biscuits – all aligned. I’m very grateful to Cracker Barrel for their outstanding partnership.”
