Amy Grant has six GRAMMYs to her name and has sold over 30 million albums worldwide, but these days her name is synonymous with Christmas music. This holiday season Grant has released her first Christmas album in over 20 years, Tennessee Christmas, which features new Christmas magic from the songstress.
And though she’s got new Christmas music out, it’s hard not to look back at all the other times she captured our hearts and that special Christmas magic.
5 Amy Grant Moments That Capture the Magic of Christmas Like No Other:
1. “Breath of Heaven” with Backing Vocals from Vince Gill
One of the greatest Christmas songs ever written, with some mighty fine backup vocals.
2. Hula-hooping to “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree”
She’s still got it.
3. “Little Town” in Washington, DC in 1985
That gospel choir is amazing, but still– all eyes on Amy Grant during this tune.
4. “Grown-Up Christmas List” Video
As a kid, this song is pretty cheesy. As an adult, Amy Grant is going to make you cry like a baby (baby).
Amy’s updated version with Jordan Smith is pretty great, too.
5. “Tennessee Christmas” with Vince Gill
You don’t have to want a Tennessee Christmas to appreciate the sentiment of being at home with your family on Christmas. Then again– Amy Grant makes everyone want a tender Tennessee Christmas.
Grant’s new Tennessee Christmas was released in Cracker Barrel stores nationwide as a part of its Spotlight Music Program. An opportunity Grant more than welcomed, “That welcoming environment that I want people to feel in music, it’s that same environment that Cracker Barrel wants that guest to feel in their restaurants. I was thrilled when they wanted to have my record available. We’re definitely on the same page in what we’re trying to create for people.”
The album is also available on iTunes.
