Nashville, TN....September 9, 2022 -  Exactly 25 years to the day of its original release, six-time GRAMMY® winner Amy Grant has released a very special project: Behind The Eyes (25th Anniversary Expanded Edition).
Earlier this spring, Grant reflected on the experience of writing and recording these songs she calls "Snapshots of life," and how "Rediscovering so many unreleased tracks was like finding an old roll of undeveloped film 25 years after taking the pictures!"
Featuring the original twelve tracks completely remastered, the 25th anniversary expanded edition also includes 18 bonus tracks comprised of previously unreleased songs, b-sides and demos from the original Behind The Eyes recording sessions. Two of the bonus tracks, “I Will Be Your Friend (2022 Version)” and “Turn This World Around (2022 Version)” were newly reimagined by producer Keith Thomas. 
Along with the digital release, a triple-vinyl package featuring expansive narratives from Grant and producers Thomas and Wayne Kirkpatrick sold out its initial run in two days, but is available for order once again at Fan excitement for this project is at such an all-time high that Grant’s fans also petitioned for the collection to be available on CD. Her team quickly responded and made a 2-CD version of the project available.

Over the next two months lyric and visualizer videos for all 30 tracks will be available, along with a social media blitz with never before seen photos, videos of archival footage from the original project's release. Next week, The Story Of Behind the Eyes podcast with Kirkpatrick, Thomas and Grant's longtime manager Jennifer Cooke, will hit on YouTube, with the three sharing stories, songs and more about the making of Behind The Eyes (25th Anniversary Expanded Edition).  
Behind The Eyes was oneof Grant's most critically acclaimed albums, and a landmark release showcasing the singer-songwriter side of Amy with one of the most honest and vulnerable grouping of songs in her award-winning catalog. Her twelfth studio album Behind The Eyes debuted at No. 2 on Billboard’s Christian albums chart and No. 8 on the Billboard 200 spawning two top 10 hits with “Takes A Little Time” and “Like I Love You.” 2022 marks the first time the original album and the 18 bonus tracks will be available on vinyl. 
Grant's management recently announced the postponement of her previously scheduled tour dates in September and October due to needing more time to recover from injuries and a concussion sustained in a bicycling accident that occurred in Nashville on July 27, 2022. All concerts will be rescheduled throughout February - April 2023 and tickets will be honored at the new dates. For further updates please visit
Grant is feeling better each day, and is looking forward to getting back on the road in November and December for a Christmas tour with Michael W. Smith as well as her annual "Christmas At The Ryman" residency with her husband Vince Gill. 
In the midst of both, Grant, along with four other esteemed honorees will receive the Kennedy Center Honor for lifetime artistic achievements on December 5th during the The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts' 45th annual national celebration of the arts in Washington, D.C.. Grant's fellow honorees are acclaimed actor and filmmaker George Clooney; the legendary singer of soul, Gospel, R&B, and pop Gladys Knight; Cuban-born American composer, conductor, and educator Tania León; and iconic Irish rock band U2, comprised of band members Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen Jr.
About Amy Grant:
Amy Grant's career spans more than 40 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 and over 1 billion global streams. 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 and the Nashville Songwriters Hall 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 and marked Grant’s first all-new holiday album in nearly 20 years. In February 2020, The T.J. Martell Foundation – the music industry’s leading nonprofit to fund innovative medical research focused on treatments and cures for cancer – honored Grant with the Tony Martell Outstanding Entertainment Achievement Award at their annual Honors Gala. 2021 found Grant celebrating her iconic, 5x platinum album, Heart In Motion, releasing a double disc 35th Anniversary Edition over the summer of 2021 that included never before released tracks and updated remixes of the hit singles. 2021 also included a lot of touring as well as a new single release, a cover of the classic song “Put A Little Love In Your Heart,” which closed out Amy’s shows. 2022 marks anniversaries of her platinum-selling classic “Age To Age” album and the gold-selling “Behind The Eyes” albums. Most recently, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts announced Grant to be one of the five Honorees who will receive the 45th Kennedy Center Honors for lifetime artistic achievements later this fall.
