Steven Curtis Chapman’s latest Christmas music is filled with hope and joy . . .
This new recording from the legendary Christian singer showcases seven new, original Christmas songs penned by Chapman — and six classics. The lead single, “Christmas Time Again,” has been climbing the charts since mid-November. Joy is his third career Christmas disc. This CD, however, is particularly meaningful to Chapman — it’s his first Christmas recording since the tragic death of his daughter Maria in 2008.
Among the album’s 13 tracks are “Christmas in Kentucky,” inspired by Chapman’s home state and “Christmas Kiss,” written for his wife Mary Beth. Joy also contains some of Chapman’s longtime favorites like “We Three Kings,” “What Child Is This?” and “Christmas Time Is Here.”
