More About Grant Amy

Amy Grant Born on November 25, 1960, in Augusta, Georgia. Amy Grant has helped revolutionize contemporary Christian music.

Harking from Nashville, Tennessee, Amy was part of a close-knit, religious family. She had a strong grounding in God's Word through her Church, would would become a major influence on her music.

Grant learned guitar as a teen, and worked at a local recording studio. It was during this time that she made a tape of her music for her parents, which had been discovered by a producer with Word Records, a Christian music label. This led to a recording contract, and her first album was released in 1977. The self-titled album was a big success in the world of Christian music. With her unique style, Grant charted new territory. She fused elements of existing genres of gospel, hymns, and Jesus music—which used rock music to convey Christian teachings—to create a fresh, new sound, not heard before. Her songs are often deeply personal as well as reflecting her spiritual faith.

Grant continued recording and performing throughout high school and college, and has made a significant career for herself releasing numerous popular albums over the years.

She also earned several Dove Awards from the Gospel Music Association (GMA), including for Performer of the Year.

Amy Grant has published or released items in the following series...
  1. Daywind Soundtracks Christmas
  2. Daywind Soundtracks Contemporary
  3. Sound Performance Soundtracks
  4. VeggieTales
  5. Word Tracks Ultimate Tracks

Reviews - What do our customers think?
wrong type of cd  Apr 1, 2010
I was disappointed that it is a hdcd and I cannot use it in my cd player
other than that everything is fine
Fabulous CD; Amy Grant delivers  Dec 29, 2009
Fabulous CD. Great Christmas CD with mainstream songs as well as some beautiful Christian songs.
Amy Grant has such a beautiful voice coupled with a wonderful orchestra and children's choir.

A must have.

I have owned my copy for years. I bought this as a gift for the religious sisters at our parish.

Home for Christmas
Love it!  Dec 28, 2009
This cd arrived several days before I thought it would, which was greatly appreciated, and it is wonderful!
Great Christmas music for your collection!  Dec 10, 2009
This CD is enjoyable for years and years. Amy Grant has a voice that is enjoyable to listen to and not distracting or detracting--great blend of songs/music/her voice that are pleasing to the ear. Terrific gift for almost any adult--I had never heard her until last year and I love this.
A Nearly Flawless Christmas CD  Dec 3, 2009
Amy Grant does Christmas albums RIGHT. Most artists make uninspired CDs chock-full of the same-old same-old, and their original songs are bland and boring filler. On the other hand, Amy Grant somehow manages to craft original songs that are just as much fun to listen to as ye olde tried and true, and takes classics and charges them with renewed energy, hope, and wonder. Every time I listen to the classics she recreates here, I feel like I'm listening to them for the first time. That's really saying something.

She one-ups her previous Christmas album in two ways: firstly, because her voice has aged and gained some richness and depth, which is marvelous to listen to. Secondly, she took that hateful 80s synth and replaced it with an orchestra. The result? This album is practically timeless.

"It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" always gives me chills -- mostly because it's so moving, joyful, and fun (and partially because I'm so excited that the album is starting, haha). "Joy to the World" and "For Unto Us..." are also fantastic. These three tried and true golden oldies set the tone for the disc; Amy Grant brings her own great style and optimism to them, never letting them sink into mediocrity. The full orchestra and the command of dynamics, combined with Amy Grant's rich voice, transforms these common songs into magnificent showstoppers.

The star of this collection is definitely "Mary's Song (Breath of Heaven)," which always brings a tear to my eye. Quiet, thoughtful, and melancholy, it takes a very unique view of the Virgin Mary -- moving beyond the picture-perfect creche Barbie Doll to illustrate a flesh-and-blood human being with very human worries. This has always been my favorite song on the album. In fact, it is my favorite Amy Grant song of all time. It's remarkably stirring and I dare a first-time listener NOT to wipe away a tear at the end of it.

The only lackluster songs to me are "Oh Come All Ye Faithful" (which I have always nodded off at, even since childhood), "Grown-Up Christmas List" (which is uninspired, goofy, fluffy, and meaningless), and "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" (which offers no substantial difference from the billions of renditions out there).

"Winter Wonderland" and "I'll Be Home for Christmas" are quite pretty and enjoyable, but lean into mediocre territory. Like the songs preceding them, there is not much to differentiate them from all of the other versions out there. I appreciate them now only for nostalgia's sake, and they're great in a mix.

Ironically, I like the last three original arrangements much more than the traditional songs. "The Night Before Christmas" is so darn happy that it never fails to make me grin. I think that's because it manages to invoke the same spirit of hope that "Mary's Song" does -- that is, it says, "Hey, we're all fallible human beings here. This holiday is not just for all of those picture-perfect people; it's for everybody. Come on, join us, be glad!" The tune is a delight, too, especially with the addition of that children's chorus.

"Emmanuel, God with Us" attracted me mostly because of its tune; starting out with few traditional instruments, reaching the uplifting, fantastic, and exciting chorus with all instruments at once, then dropping back with only one or two instruments. I'm usually enjoying the music too much to listen to the words, admittedly, which is quite wrong, as there are lovely lyrics to go along with the lovely melody.

My second-favorite song on the album is definitely "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring." What a great song to go out on! It begins traditionally, slowly, quite pretty, your typical arrangement... and at first you think that Amy is going to leave you hanging. Then, BAM! it turns into a foot-stomping dance, complete with violins and a full orchestra. I can always imagine a warm, golden common room filled with joyful, dancing common folk.

In fact, I think there's definitely a common theme for this album -- that Christmas is for everyone, every fallible and silly human being out there. This is probably why I've always liked it so much.

In the end, this is my favorite Christmas album. Sure, there are some low points to it, but with such awesome and unique songs and such lovely reimaginings, how could anyone dislike it?
