Amy Grant is #1


For those who have been waiting to hear if Amy Grant’s first album in 10 years is any good – take heart. “How Mercy Looks From Here” has made the #1 spot on Christian soundScan. That is good news, but somewhat to be expected coming from a Christian music source. But how about this? Her debut made it to the #12 spot on the Billboard 200. Now that’s impressive.

“Amy Grant has delivered a beautiful record of compelling songs that document her life experiences over the past decade since her last studio record," remarked Peter York, President, Capitol CMG Label Group.  "It’s an authentic album of songs she’s written that allow the listener to peer deeply into her heart and connect emotionally with her journey.  It must be heard to be appreciated and I would encourage all to taste and see.”


Grant has been receiving some great press to including this quote from the Associated Press: “Few singers probe issues of the spirit and of the heart with the warmth and intimacy of Amy Grant.….With a voice as organic and comforting as a wool sweater, Grant shows maturity by relying on her voice's amber tones and subtle phrasing without showing off or pushing any edges…..however we look at time, we should make the best of this moment — which is what Grant does on ‘How Mercy Looks From Here.’"

This news is on the heels of an extensive press and radio tour (including Seattle’s own SPIRIT 105.3 FM). In the next couple of weeks, you can expect to see her on Lifetime TV shows “The Balancing Act” on May 28 and “Hollywood Watch” on May 31. Additionally, Grant is also scheduled to appear on the ABC daytime shows “The View” on June 20 and “The Chew” on July 19.

Those in the Seattle area can look forward to seeing Grant in person as she stops for a concert at Overlake Christian Church in Redmond, WA. She will be appearing with Brandon Heath on Saturday, July 20 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets range from $30 general seating to $110 VIP seating which includes a pre-show event with Grant and Heath and tour exclusive autographed poster.
