Synopsis

Amazon.com
Gary Chapman is probably better known as the host of TNN's Prime Time Country and, of course, as the husband of widely popular singer Amy Grant. But the guy can play a guitar lick or two, as evidenced on The Light Inside. Chapman lights up with the gospel-tinged rocker "Sweet Glow of Mercy" and augments it with some well-placed riffs. While the opener, "Where Are the Broken Hearts," sounds suspiciously like Tom Petty's "Freefallin'," Chapman provides just enough leeway to have you tapping your toes by the song's finish. But it is the ballad "Sweet Jesus" that ends the release on its finest note. The powerful lyrics and emotionally charged vocals Chapman belts out leave little room for doubt: the man has soul. --Michael Lyttle

CD Reviews

A wonderful selection for any listener
L. Brady | 07/18/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Gary Chapman is a wonderfully talented musician with a rich, passionate voice. Unfortunately, his is often only distinguished as the husband of pop and Christian music singer Amy Grant, but he deserves as much or more recognition than she for his music. Though most of the music on this album is religous in nature, there are several secular and equally heart-wrenching love songs. His is music that will more the young and the old, the religious and not-so alike. Gary Chapman is one of the best-kept secrets of pop music (much to his own dismay, I am sure) and I doubt that anyone who loves good songs and powerful lyrics will regret purchasing his album."
"Treasures, the treasure of the heart.

"Treasures is my absolute favorite Gary Chapman song. It as though it was written and sang in the same spirit of David (King David) of the Bible, a man after God's own heart. I have great respect for Gary's music and career, considering that he is married to such a celebrity, yet he has a big enough heart to be humbled in his music. It is obvious that he is a changed man, from his youth. Treasure the relationship that we have in our Lord Jesus Christ."
One of the best voices in music today...

"I just love this guy's sound. He's been writing for everybody else for so long, I was really glad to see him make a solo project, and he certainly didn't disappoint me. The songs are poignant and honest, but it's his vocals that send you to the next level. Heartfelt and passionate, strong and tender at the same time, Gary knows how to communicate what's in his heart. "Give Me Tomorrow", "Treasure," "Where are the Broken Hearts," and Love Will Be Our Anchor" are a few of my faves from this set. If you love strong male vocals, coupled with tender melodies, you'll love this!"
