StephenCurtisChapmanJoyCDCover-webFive-time GRAMMY winner and multi-Platinum singer-songwriter Steven Curtis Chapman took home the Christmas Album of the Year GMA Dove Award last week for his album JOY. This marks Chapman’s 58th career Dove Award, more than any other artist to date.

The award comes on the heels of Chapman’s first full-length studio album release in seven years, The Glorious Unfolding. The album debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Christian Albums chart. 

First single, “Love Take Me Over,” garnered 42 radio adds in its first week, one of Christian music’s highest add dates of 2013. The single placed at No. 3 on the Christian AC Indicator chart, recently broke into the Top 10 on Christian AC Monitored and peaked at No. 8 on the National Christian Audience chart.

Chapman is supporting the single and album by partnering with KLOVE, The Joy FM and WAY-FM to give fans the chance to win a trip to his New York City Carnegie Hall show in February.

The Glorious Unfolding Tour—featuring Laura Story and Jason Gray—kicked off earlier this month to three sell-out shows in Texas.
