After selling over 25 million albums worldwide, winning numerous GRAMMY® Awards and countless other career milestones, Amy Grant is releasing her first live recording in 25 years with “TIME AGAIN…AMY GRANT LIVE” on September 26th. In anticipation of this release and celebration of her illustrious career, Grant will be honored with a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on September 19th. She is the first artist with roots in Contemporary Christian Music to receive such (Urban/Gospel great Al Green has previously received a star).
The follow-up to her GRAMMY® winning album “Rock of Ages…Hymns of Faith,” “TIME AGAIN…AMY GRANT LIVE” weaves a retrospective journey through a lifetime’s worth of Grant’s most treasured songs in her 30-year career. Filmed and recorded live in the exquisite Bass Hall in Ft. Worth, TX—the city of her very first paid performance – Grant invites audiences into her “living room,” even bringing a couch and painting from her own home as part of the intimate stage setting for the DVD.
“I feel this project is marked by a longstanding relationship between a singer/songwriter and her audience, and I think you feel that,” remarks Grant. “That’s the unique quality of any artist/audience relationship that develops over a period of decades, because it’s not even about a particular song, it’s about the familiarity with something that’s been a part of your life for a long time. That’s why the whole emphasis of everything from the stage set up, the way we did the songs, the banter in-between, was ‘let’s highlight the familiarity, relationship and friendship – the shared experience.”
The project offers Christian and mainstream hits from the past 25 years including “Lead Me On,” “Good For Me,” “Stay For A While,” “Simple Things,” “Saved By Love,” “Out In The Open,” “In A Little While,” “Thy Word,” “Father’s Eyes,” El Shaddai,” “Oh How The Years Go By,” “Baby Baby,” “Eye To Eye,” “Ask Me,” “After The Fire,” “Carry You,” “Believe,” “Every Heartbeat” and “If These Walls Could Speak.” The CD additionally features a new studio recording of “In A Little While” and bonus material on the DVD includes behind the scenes/making-of footage, song-by-song descriptions, breakfast with Amy’s fan club, “fan cam” footage, “hanging with the band” and more.
The brand new recording of “In A Little While” will go to AC/INSPO radio formats on July 28th, along with live versions of some of Amy’s biggest Christian radio hits. In addition, an XM Artist Confidential special will air street week, and longtime friend Michael W. Smith recently interviewed Grant for an upcoming Soul2Soul radio special where the two friends discussed songwriting, touring, and much more during a 1-hour long conversation. The radio special will air in 500+ markets the weekend of Oct. 6th.
Grant will be launching a Symphony tour this fall where she will be performing with local symphonies in each market, including Atlanta, Nashville, Minneapolis, Kansas City and more. In addition, she will be filming an NBC Christmas special with several pro ice skaters including Kristy Yamaguchi and more. More information on this tour and special will be forthcoming.
