Twenty-five years ago, Amy Grant released one of her most critically acclaimed albums, Behind The Eyes.  The album was a landmark release showcasing the singer-songwriter side of Amy and was one of the most honest and vulnerable grouping of songs in her award-winning catalog. Behind The Eyes was Grant’s twelfth studio album and upon release, debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Christian albums chart and No. 8 on the Billboard 200 and spawned two top 10 hits with “Takes A Little Time” and “Like I Love You”.  2022 marks the first time the original album and the 18 bonus tracks will be available on vinyl.   In support of the anniversary of the Behind The Eyes, Amy will launch a 25 city tour in September/October and each night will include several songs from the project.  Dates will be announced soon with all details available at amygrant.com

Who Is Amy Grant?

Amy Grant’s career spans more than 40 years and stretches from her roots in gospel into becoming an iconic pop star, songwriter, television personality and philanthropist. With three multi-platinum albums, six platinum albums and four gold albums, her total career album sales have exceeded 30 million and over 1 billion global streams. Grant’s chart success has been consistent throughout her career with six No. 1 hits, 10 Top 40 pop singles, 17 Top 40 Adult Contemporary tracks and multiple Contemporary Christian chart-toppers. In addition to her six GRAMMY® Awards, Grant has earned 26 Dove Awards (including four Artist of the Year Awards) and has been awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as well as the Music City Walk of Fame and the Nashville Songwriter’s Hall of Fame. Conventional wisdom has it that Grant put Contemporary Christian Music on the map becoming the first Contemporary Christian artist to have a platinum record, the first to hit No. 1 on the Pop charts and the first to perform at the GRAMMY® Awards. With that, her legacy as one of the most influential artists of the past four decades is assured. In April of 2016, Grant celebrated the 25th anniversary of her iconic hit “Baby Baby” with a worldwide release of the song featuring pop sensation Tori Kelly. Tennessee Christmas released in late 2016 and marked Grant’s first all-new holiday album in nearly 20 years. In February 2020, The T.J. Martell Foundation – the music industry’s leading nonprofit to fund innovative medical research focused on treatments and cures for cancer – honored Grant with the Tony Martell Outstanding Entertainment Achievement Award at their annual Honors Gala. 2021 found Grant celebrating her iconic, 5x platinum album, Heart in Motion, releasing a double disc 35th Anniversary Edition on July 9 that included never before released tracks and updated remixes of the hit singles. 2022 promises to be a busy year with touring as well as a new single release, a cover of the classic song “Put A Little Love In Your Heart,” which closes out Amy’s current shows.  Additionally, 2022 marks anniversaries of her platinum-selling classic “Age To Age” album and the gold-selling “Behind The Eyes” albums. Grant recently released a cover of the classic hit song “Put A Little Love In Your Heart,” as well as a unique music video including fan-submitted photos and videos taken from her 2021 Line By Line Tour.
