STEVEN CURTIS CHAPMAN RELEASES “TOGETHER (WE’LL GET THROUGH THIS)
LIVE FROM RYMAN AUDITORIUM”
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Five-time GRAMMY® winner Steven Curtis Chapman unveils “Together (We’ll Get Through This) Live from Ryman Auditorium” today. The single is available to stream or download HERE, and the video of Chapman’s compelling performance at the temporarily closed venue is available to watch HERE.
“The Ryman feels like home to me as I know it does to many people in our music community. While it’s always surreal to sing on the historic stage, I can’t quite describe what it was like to perform to the empty pews. I’m looking forward to the day that we can all gather together in the Mother Church again,” shared Chapman.
“Lyrically strewn to offer comfort, reassurance, and hope in a time of grief, upended livelihoods, and an uncertainty of the future (American Songwriter),” Chapman originally released “Together” as a collaboration with Brad Paisley, Lauren Alaina and Tasha Cobbs Leonard to benefit the Opry Trust Fund and Gospel Music Association to assist those who’ve been gravely affected by COVID-19.
Over Memorial Day Weekend, Chapman virtually performed “Together” live on “Fox & Friends” from the Grand Ole Opry House. Chapman returned to the Opry that evening for the annual Salute The Troops Memorial Day Weekend Special with Craig Morgan and Kellie Pickler. The show, which was broadcast live on Circle and Gray TV stations, DISH Studio Channel 102, Sling TV and other TV affiliates in addition to a companion live stream on Circle All Access Facebook and YouTube channels, honored United States military and essential workers on the frontline of the COVID-19 battle.
