“Wow! What a gift to have Amy back on the airwaves,” says Carmen Brown, of the Joy FM’s Morning Cruise in Tampa, FL. “It's like reuniting with that old friend, and even though some time has passed, you haven't missed a beat. I experienced that reunion this week with Amy & our listeners. ‘Better Than a Hallelujah’ is such an honest song. It articulates the message that our faith isn't about simply waiting on the goose bumps & good days. It's based on God's faithfulness in the hard times and loving us despite the mess we are.”

Later this week, Grant will be speaking with Nightline, Guideposts.com, Premiere Radio Networks, Fox News Network, SELF Magazine and more as well as performing on the CBS Early Show on Saturday morning and taping a performance to air on Fox & Friends Easter Sunday.

God bless you.” “Just bought Somewhere Down the Road on iTunes ®. It's beautiful, amazing, and inspiring. Thanks for sharing so much of yourself, Amy!” “I have been a devoted fan of yours since the beginning of your career. Every time you have a new album, it becomes my favorite. This one will be no exception. I am really enjoying it, and I have no doubt it will give needed support and encouragement to many people. You are such an inspiration. Wishing you many, many blessings. ?” Somewhere Down the Road is a potent collection that takes the listener on a musical journey that reverberates with messages of resiliency, promise and hope. The 12-track set includes six new songs, two previously unreleased tracks from her musical vault, a newly recorded version of “Arms of Love,” and three songs from her catalog.

Amy Grant’s career spans over 25 years and stretches from her roots in gospel into an iconic pop star, songwriter, television personality, and philanthropist. Grant has sold more than 30 million albums and won six GRAMMY® Awards in multiple categories, beginning with the platinum selling Age to Age in 1982. She also has six #1 hits, including “Baby, Baby,” and “Every Heartbeat” and is one of only two Christian artists to be awarded a star on the legendary Walk of Fame in Hollywood. Grant released her first live recording in 25 years with Time Again...Amy Grant Live in September 2006, and then announced her first ever label shift to EMI Music Group where her entire music catalog was re-mastered and released via a GREATEST HITS CD and made available for the first time digitally. Last fall she released her first new Christmas music in 9 years, THE CHRISTMAS COLLECTION, which in addition to four new songs, features tracks that were hand-picked by Grant to include the best songs from her previous albums that result in a classic Christmas album reminiscent of the Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, etc. albums of old.
