Steven Curtis Chapman Makes History, Becomes First Modern Day Christian Artist to Hit 50th No. 1 Song

Contemporary Christian artist, Steven Curtis Chapman, has emerged as the first to have 50 songs on the top charts in his musical genre.

His song, “Don’t Lose Heart” has pushed the modern-day Christian artist to make history, as it became his 50th piece to top radio hits. “Don’t Lose Heart” was part of his album titled “Still” which was released in 2022. The song expressed the grief his family had gone through, when his 5-year-old daughter, Maria, died in an accident in their driveway.

In a statement, Chapman said; “I’m completely blown away by the support for this song and for my music, even after so many years.” “To ever have a number one song at radio as an artist/songwriter is a dream come true, and to have fifty is simply unbelievable! This only happens because of an amazing team and a community of friends around me who have believed in the unbelievable. I’m grateful and humbled beyond words.”

The contemporary gospel artist released a new version of his single, “Don’t Lose Heart” in February, where he featured the country singer, Mitchell Tenpenny.

Country singer Tenpenny had taken to his Twitter handle, where he posted about the victory of the gospel artist. The caption on his post read, “My brother @StevenCurtis just got his 50th number 1 this week…. I grew up listening to you SCC & I’m honored that you would let me sing on this version with you. First time hearing myself on Christian radio! Y’all go listen to #DontLoseHeart @KLOVERadio

Holly Zabka, president of Provident Entertainment/Sony Music said in her company’s announcement about Chapman, “We are so honored and excited to be a part of Steven’s 50th No. 1 song with ‘Don’t Lose Heart.” “This unprecedented and monumental achievement for Steven is a testament to the incredible artist and songwriter he is and can only be outshined by the countless lives that have been changed by his music.”

Curtis Chapman first song to hit No. 1 was his single, “His Eyes” which was part of his 1988 “Real Life Conversations” Album. Several of his songs had topped the chart ever since.

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
