With 50 #1 singles at Christian radio over a 37-year music career, Steven Curtis Chapman brings his “Still Tour” to Chattanooga’s Walker Theatre this Saturday, March 2.

Chapman is the most awarded artist in Christian Music History, with 59 Gospel Music Association (GMA) Dove Awards, five Grammy Awards, American Music Award, as well as the BMI Icon Award – the first Christian music songwriter to ever receive the award.

With seventeen million albums sold, Chapman is touring his critically acclaimed 2022 album “Still” this winter and spring.

Chattanooga is a staple city for Chapman, who has played at every music venue in the city in his long career, including a near-sellout show at McKenzie Arena (then known as UTC Arena) on Nov. 14, 1996, with opening act Audio Adrenaline.

Chapman has committed to a 30-song-set for each night of the tour, a feat he says is “ambitious”, but says he believes is important to do when you’ve had a legacy fanbase.

“My first album was released in 1987, so that represents 25 records or so to try to mine all the songs from, and songs that have connected with people’s lives, so I feel a weight to play every song I can play that my friends in Chattanooga want to hear me play,” said Chapman.

Chapman has a “unique” opening act scheduled to perform with him Saturday, when “Cousin Curtis and Possum Trotters” will take the stage first in direct support of the tour – and Bluegrass music lovers will certainly enjoy the fronter music act.

“Coming to Chattanooga, and East Tennessee is always a homecoming, because I’ve lived in Tennessee for 40 years. There is so many families and friends and history for me in my career, and quite frankly, the best music is made in Tennessee, so I’m proud to be playing again in my home state and for everyone who as followed me over the years in Chattanooga,” Chapman quipped.
