Nashville, Tenn. (October 17, 2013) – Five-time GRAMMY® winner and multi-platinum singer-songwriter Steven Curtis Chapman took home the "Christmas Album of the Year" GMA Dove Award earlier this 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 and received widespread critical acclaim. In addition to a number of 5 star reviews, Beliefnet.com championed the album as "a mixture of everything that makes [Chapman] great. It’s honest, raw, clever, powerful and even playful…it is uplifting in a way only someone who has dealt with tragedy and loss can truly express it in words." Rhapsody called the album "a return to the upbeat pop [Chapman] does best."

The success of the album continues to shine through on the first single "Love Take Me Over," which garnered 42 radio adds on its first week, one of Christian music’s highest add dates of 2013. The single has held strong at the No. 3 spot 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 WAYFM to give fans the chance to win a trip to his New York City Carnegie Hall show in February 2014.

"The Glorious Unfolding Tour" kicked off earlier this month to three sell-out shows in Texas. A west coast run continues this weekend and then capacity crowd concerts with Chapman, Laura Story and Jason Gray are expected on the run through November 24.

The 44th Annual GMA Dove Awards was held at Lipscomb University's Allen Arena in Nashville, Tenn. The entire event will be televised exclusively on UP Television Network on Monday, October 21 at 8:00 PM ET.
