Steven Curtis Chapman is releasing a new song that he hopes encourages listeners to stay on the path that God has laid out for them.

The Kentucky singer has spent the last 35 years creating and performing songs that have shaped the way Contemporary Christian Music is written.

Chapman released a new single called 'Don't Lose Heart,' which is now the second song he has released after the announcement of his re-signing with Provident Label Group. His song "Still" is the first.

In an Instagram post, Chapman says, "I'm really excited to share this new song that I pray will be an anthem of hope and encouragement! There's no way I'd be where I am on this journey without the people God has put around me who have cheered me on, encouraged me in the dark valleys and reminded me that I'm not alone. We desperately need each other on this journey, now more than ever, and I hope this song will be an anthem of hope and encouragement that we can sing to each other and help each other remember that God is with us and we are gonna make it home...together!"

Chapman has earned 49 No. 1 singles under his belt and he is the most awarded artist in Christian music history,  winning 59 GMA Dove Awards, five GRAMMY Awards, an American Music Award, and selling more than eleven million albums with ten RIAA-Certified Gold or Platinum albums. 

The Christian artist is 59 years old, but The Christian Beat says that his two latest singles are just the start of a new project.
