Synonymous with the special time of year, Amy Grant will be trimming television airwaves, making it again a Tennessee Christmas!
With 32 shows nationwide, an excess of 130,000 people celebrated the holiday season with Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith and Jordan Smith. Kicking off on Nov. 11 at Los Angeles’ Dolby Theater, multi-platinum selling and GRAMMY® award winning artists Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith co-billed their popular symphony-filled Christmas tour joined by Republic recording artist Jordan Smith, Season 9 winner of NBC’s “The Voice.” Under the direction of Musical Director and Conductor David Hamilton, the annual holiday tour included stops in Phoenix, Seattle, Portland, Indianapolis, Detroit, Dallas, Tulsa, Minneapolis, Atlanta and more. Grant also returned to Nashville’s iconic Ryman Auditorium for nine performances with husband Vince Gill, aptly titled “Christmas At The Ryman.”
It has been a busy Tennessee Christmas for six-time GRAMMY® winner Amy Grant. Amidst releasing her first all-new holiday album in nearly 20 years (Tennessee Christmas), Grant has been traversing both coasts on a Christmas symphony tour with Michael W. Smith, joined by Republic recording artist Jordan Smith (winner of NBC’s “The Voice”), alongside teaming up with husband Vince Gill for their “Christmas At The Ryman” residency. Critics are continuing to adore Tennessee Christmas.
In describing Tennessee Christmas to Billboard, multi-platinum selling singer, songwriter Amy Grant called it “a lovely blend of family and real-life experience, with all the happiness and sadness that comes from this time of year when people are really nostalgic, and all the good and bad kind of bubbles up.”
Six-time GRAMMY® Award winner Amy Grant’s newly released Tennessee Christmas earned the No. 3 spot on Billboard’s Holiday Albums chart just behind top sellers Pentatonix and Trans-Siberian Orchestra. The debut comes ahead of Grant’s appearance on the Hallmark Channel’s “Home & Family: Home for the Holidays” airing on November 17, and a performance of the title track on the CMA’s Country Christmas airing on ABC November 28.
Multi-platinum recording artist Amy Grant will unveil her first all-new Christmas album in nearly twenty years on October 21, just in time for the holiday season. A collection of thirteen new recordings, including the title track, Tennessee Christmas offers a blend of heartfelt originals and Grant’s own spin on popular Yuletide classics, seamlessly weaving together the joy, love, laughter, and even grief this season brings. Recorded in her home studio in Nashville, Grant collaborated with producers Mac McAnally (Jimmy Buffett, Martina McBride), Marshall Altman (Marc Broussard, Frankie Ballard) and Ed Cash (Chris Tomlin, David Crowder Band) to bring this project to life. Looking forward to the release, Grant shares some insight into her vision behind this project – “I’ve loved traveling the world with my guitar, but my favorite musical memories have happened right here at home around Christmastime with family and friends. I hope we’ve captured some of that magic to share with all of you this holiday season!”
