Amy Grant to Release Christmas Albums for the First Time on Vinyl

Nashville, TN (September 12, 2019) – For the first time ever, multi-platinum and 6x GRAMMY winner Amy Grant is releasing her incredibly popular Christmas projects in a limited edition vinyl box set (October 11).  The one-of-a-kind set will feature the over 3x platinum Home for Christmas as well as two other classic Grant Christmas projects, A Christmas Album and A Christmas to Remember.  A special and nostalgic way to celebrate the projects that have made Grant synonymous with Christmas, the box set also includes a bonus 7″ vinyl featuring two rare tracks – a cover of “Merry Christmas Darling” and “Let the Season Take Wing,” only available in the vinyl box set.  The set also includes handwritten lyrics of fan favorite “Breath of Heaven (Mary’s Song).”

As one of the top-selling Christmas albums of all time, Grant’s classic, Home for Christmas will also be made available for the first time ever on vinyl (Oct. 11).  Originally released only on CD and cassette in 1992, the project features many of the biggest Christmas classics from Grant’s four decades of making Christmas music, and something her fans have been clammoring for on vinyl for years.
Also this upcoming holiday season, Grant is reuniting with Michael W. Smith to co-bill their popular Christmas tour where they will be joined by special guest Marc Martel. Incorporating a full symphony orchestra at each performance, this musical mastery is being presented by Balsam Hill®.
Immediately following, Grant and husband Vince Gill will begin their annual Christmas at the Ryman residency.  The 12-date holiday concert run will kick off on Dec. 11 at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium and close on Dec. 23.
This year’s Ryman residency offers matinee times of the couple’s holiday show on Dec. 15, 22 and 23.

About Amy Grant:
Amy Grant’s career spans more than 30 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. 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. 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, marking Grant’s first all-new holiday album in nearly 20 years.

Absolutely Gospel Music
Formed over 19 years ago by Deon & Susan Unthank originally as SoGospelNews.com, the site was birthed from an email discussion group by the same name. The SoGospelNews email discussion list was created by the Unthanks after the Singing News shut down its extremely popular discussion list. SoGospelNews started as a simple webpage listing artists, fans, individuals, etc. that were avid supporters of the newly formed SoGospelNews talk list. The site eventually took on printing news for Southern Gospel artists, and eventually took on reviewing the latest recordings from both signed and independent artists within the small genre. SoGospelNews became the most viewed Southern Gospel website on the Internet with over 4,000,000 hits per month.

The Unthank family are now involved in the site, as well as the addition of over two dozen staff writers. The website is based out of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. In April 2010, SoGospelNews changed its name to AbsolutelyGospel.com. The name change allows them to cover news items of not only Southern Gospel, but also Country Gospel, Inspirational, and Black Gospel.

On January 5, 2011, Susan Unthank passed away, leaving the website in control of Deon, their son, Chris, and their daughter Amy.
