Gary Chapman has long been one of the most respected singer- songwriters in Nashville. For over four decades, Chapman has seamlessly blurred the musical lines of contemporary Christian, pop, country and southern gospel, racking up an impressive list of awards including seven Dove Awards, five GRAMMY nominations and writing credits for legendary artists such as Kenny Rogers, Alabama and Wynonna. Chapman is also widely remembered as the host of TNN’s popular “Prime Time Country” television series and the “Sam’s Place” concert series and radio show at the Ryman Auditorium.
Gary and wife Cassie adopted a baby daughter, Eva Rose in 2013 and remain very close to his son Matt and daughters Sarah and Millie, who’ve since spread their wings for school and successful careers respectively. “Family is everything to us”.
Along with his buddy, Scott Cutcher, Gary has began a podcast/ television show called “Turbulent Truth” which airs on multiple platforms in 156 countries. They take on all current issues with a healthy mixture of wisdom and hilarity. www.TurbulentTruth.com.
Gary’s broad experience in music and television keeps him in demand and qualified for just about every facet of the creative process. He claims he has “taken recreation to an artform” and enjoys hiking, fishing, boating, scuba diving, skiing and pretty much anything you can have fun doing outside. He soloed an airplane when he was 12 years old and has been a licensed pilot of fixed wing and rotorcraft his entire life. He and Cassie love to travel and are always ready to see what’s around the next bend in the road.
