Multi-GRAMMY® Award-winning artist/songwriter Steven Curtis Chapman drops his latest single, "Don't Lose Heart," today (Provident/Sony Music). "Don't Lose Heart" is a passionate anthem of hope, inspired by Chapman's own journey through the shallowed valley of grief and loss that he and his family have traveled.
Chapman writes, "I'm really excited to share this new song that I pray will be an anthem of hope and encouragement! There's no way I'd be where I am on this journey without the people God has put around me who have cheered me on, encouraged me in the dark valleys and reminded me that I'm not alone.
"We desperately need each other on this journey, now more than ever, and I hope this song will be an anthem of hope and encouragement that we can sing to each other and help each other remember that God is with us and we are gonna make it home...together!"
The song follows the release of "Still," which made its debut in May along with his announcement of re-signing with Provident Label Group.
Chapman has spent the last 35 years writing and performing genre-defining songs that shaped a generation. With 49 No. 1 singles in his catalog, he is the most awarded artist in Christian music history, winning 59 GMA Dove Awards, five GRAMMY Awards, an American Music Award, and selling more than eleven million albums with ten RIAA-Certified® Gold or Platinum albums. Chapman is synonymous with contemporary Christian music, which is one of the many reasons he was recently honored for his prolific musical career as a BMI Icon Award recipient.
He is the first Christian songwriter honoree, joining the elite list of songwriters that includes Barry Manilow, Brian Wilson, Carole King, Dolly Parton, Kris Kristofferson, Merle Haggard, Sting, and others who have left an influence on generations of music makers and the music industry. Chapman was given the award last month at the 2022 BMI Christian Awards held in Nashville, Tennessee.
