The Texas native turned Nashville transplant is a multiple GRAMMY nominee, multiple Dove Award winner (including “Male Vocalist of the Year” and “Songwriter of the Year”), source of several landmark albums on RCA Records, Reunion Records and Word Records, writer for songs recorded by Kenny Rogers, Alabama and Wynonna, four year host of TNN’s hit show “Prime Time Country,” six year host of the “Sam’s Place” concert series/syndicated radio show at the famed Ryman Auditorium and founder of the record label that launched current Disney music mainstays Everlife, amongst many others.
September 2nd, 1986 is a poignant moment in Gary’s life. Gary’s life has been an open book fueled by amazing success, rampant rumors and personal tragedy. He steps into this interview completely transparent and vulnerable. We talk about his father, a failed marriage, the up and downs of his musical career, drug use along with the healing he has been through. It seems that healing has much to do with his obvious deep love for his wife Cassie. Throughout our talk, it’s clear that Gary Chapman has something to say.
Gary and his wife Cassie also star in TNT’s newest Reality TV show Private Lives of Nashville Wives.
His new CD The Truth (featuring: Alison Krauss, Rebecca Lynn Howard, Tanya Tucker & John Rich; along with wife Cassie and daughter Sarah) is an inspirational combination of heartfelt melodies coupled with Gary’s signature high energy style.
