~ MORE NEW MUSIC FROM MULTI-PLATINUM, SIX-TIME GRAMMY-WINNER AMY GRANT— “WHAT YOU HEARD,” TRACK AND LYRIC VIDEO ARE AVAILABLE TODAY ~
Amy Grant’s ‘What You Heard’ Song & Video Available Today
More new music from multi-platinum, six-time GRAMMY-winner Amy Grant is available today with the release of her latest single and lyric video, “What You Heard.” Available across all DSP’s today, the track follows Grant’s first release in over a decade, the song “Trees We’ll Never See,” which NPR called, “a testament to Grant’s taste and temperament,” and on which she “sings in a voice that’s turned amber with time.” Grant recently sang the track during an Earth Day event with Pepperdine University as they planted fruit trees at the Frederick K. C. Price III Christian School campus, Pepperdine’s original location (photo below).
Co-written with Natalie Hemby and Barry Dean, Grant speaks of the important message of “What You Heard,” saying, “This song came directly from a therapy session with one of my kids. Sharing a bloodline with someone does not guarantee a relationship. Relationship requires showing up and listening. It takes practice to build a better communication tool kit and on the other side, sharpen our receptors; but it’s worth the effort to keep trying, to keep communicating. At 62 I still have a lot to learn.”
“There’s a reason Amy is a hall of fame writer,” GRAMMY-winning co-writer Natalie Hemby adds in talking about the songwriting session with Grant. “She takes her personal experiences and runs them through a lens we can all see through and relate to. The day that she, Barry, and I wrote this, she was sharing her own missteps in some of her closest relationships… how you think you think your words are reaching out to someone, when, in fact, they are only pushing them away. It was deeply personal for her, but I found it was deeply personal for me too.“
Grant will wrap her spring tour run on May 9, followed by a handful of summer shows leading up to the completion of 70 performances across the U.S. in 2023. Also recently announced was one of Music City’s most treasured traditions with Grant and husband Vince Gill’s beloved “Christmas at the Ryman” residency. The 12-concert run is scheduled for December 13-14, 16-17, 19-20 and 22-23 and will once again feature matinee performances of the beloved show. Tickets are on sale now and will only be available for purchase at ryman.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 Songwriters 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 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. Most recently, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts included Grant as one of their five distinguished Honorees to receive the 45th Kennedy Center Honors for lifetime artistic achievements. In 2023, Grant will be on the road performing in 70 cities across the country and recently released her first new music in a decade, starting with the single “Trees We’ll Never See,” (March) and most recently in April “What You Heard.”
