Amy Grant to Release 17th Album

align=left>5-time Grammy Award winning artist Amy Grant will release her 17th album, Legacy*Hymns And Faith, on Word Records this May 21st.
Legacy will feature the joint production efforts of longtime producer and friend Brown Bannister, along with artist and husband Vince Gill. This hymns album will include a selection of both well-known classics such as “Holy, Holy, Holy”, “Fairest Lord Jesus”, and “This Is My Father’s World” as well as four original tunes.
This next musical offering from Grant chronicles her own journey of faith throughout the years and is meant to encourage listeners to connect personally in their own faith relationship.
“When Mike Blanton came to me with the idea of doing a hymns record to commemorate the last 25 years, I got excited,” Grant says. “I really see Legacy as identifying for myself a long overdue musical expression of my roots. The more life you live, you realize how precious it is to be moved. I just thought how much I would like to be moved again by these songs that really fashioned the framework of my faith as a child. I wanted to re-introduce these songs in hopes that the people who grew up on them could also be moved again and enjoy then in a very intimate setting.”
Grant, who debuted on the Word-owned Myrrh label in 1978 at the age of 17, has pioneered the path for Contemporary Christian music. Since then Grant’s musical resume has come to include one Quintuple Platinum, one Triple Platinum, and one Double Platinum album, as well as additional six Platinum and three Gold albums. Sales from her landmark 25-year career total over 22 million sold worldwide. Along with her five Grammys, she also has received 17 Dove Awards, the highest honor in the Christian music market. Grant’s vast media exposure includes appearances on Good Morning America, The Today Show, Oprah, Late Night With David Letterman, and Larry King Live among others, and also heralds special television productions such as the Lifetime Television special “Women Rock!: Girls & Guitars,” The Grammy Awards, The American Music Awards, Christmas In Washington, an acting debut role in a CBS network original movie “A Song From The Heart”, as well as hosting the CBS network “A Christmas To Remember” special.
Most recently Grant was honored as the “Nashvillian Of The Year” for her leadership and community awareness strides which encompasses her work with the American Red Cross, the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, and the Nashville Symphony. Grant also participates in Nashville’s Leadership Music Program and meets with terminally ill children as part of the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
Fans can also anticipate another studio release from Grant later this year.
