NASHVILLE, TN….June 11, 2008…..20 years ago multi-platinum selling and award-winning artist Amy Grant released “Lead Me On,” one of the most popular, treasured albums in her spectacular careers’ 30 year history, and one that ushered in a new era of Christian music. To commemorate this special project, EMI CMG has announced plans to release a 20th Anniversary Edition of “Lead Me On” on June 24th.

The two-disc set will include the fully-remastered, original “Lead Me On” project, plus a bonus CD with 45 minutes of new and previously unreleased content including new acoustic versions of “Lead Me On” (with Vince Gill), “Faithless Heart” (with Michael W. Smith), “Say Once More”, and four never-heard before live tracks from the original 1989 tour. On top of the new audio material will be all new packaging, artwork, liners, an essay from Grant and Brown Bannister and more, all in newly designed deluxe packaging (track listing below).

In addition, in support of these songs and season of life for so many who loved this project, Grant is launching the “Lead Me On” 20th Anniversary Celebration Tour” in October, which will hit 20 cities (see dates below).

“I am so excited to recapture and re-engage audiences with these songs,” Grant says. “I can honestly say that I am truly looking forward to getting out and performing these songs, and hope to bring back the passion and inspiration these songs brought out in me and so many.”

Also coming this fall, EMI and Grant have partnered to create a special Christmas project, “The Christmas Collection,” that will hit in September. More details on this project will be announced soon.

Amy Grant has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, and she has achieved unparalleled success as a crossover Contemporary Christian artist. In the U.S. alone, Grant’s achievements include nine platinum and platinum-plus albums and nine gold albums, six Grammy Awards and 21 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards. She is well-known as the pioneering Christian singer whose success on mainstream radio opened doors for other Christian artists. Grant’s impact was recently celebrated with a star on the legendary Hollywood Walk of Fame, making her the only artist with roots in Contemporary Christian music other than Andrae Crouch to receive such an honor.
