Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife Mary Beth founded non-profit organization Show Hope in 2003, aiming to restore hope for orphans dreaming of finding a family. Taking place at Nashville’s iconic Ryman Auditorium, Chapman hosted star-studded event, “Sam’s Place: Music for the Spirit,” to help raise money for his philanthropy. 

The two-night event, Aug. 27 and Sept. 17, featured a variety of artists including Rodney Atkins, Bethel Music, Brandon Heath, Lori McKenna, Ryan Stevenson, Johnny Diaz, Amy Grant, The SteelDrivers, and last but not least, country superstar Scotty McCreery

During the charitable event, McCreery joined the iconic Christian singer for a powerful duet of Hank Williams Sr.’s “I Saw the Light,” their voices melding masterfully together throughout their pure country performance. 

“I saw the light, I saw the light/ No more darkness, no more night,” sang McCreery and Chapman. “Now I’m so happy, no sorrow in sight/ Praise the Lord, I saw the light.”

Chapman is the most awarded artist in Christian music, earning a whopping 58 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, five Grammy Awards, and charting 48 No.1 singles. 

“I Saw the Light” was written and recorded by Williams in 1947, the singer later using the iconic country gospel song to close out his shows.
