NASHVILLE, TN... October 6, 2023 - Six-time GRAMMY-winner Amy Grant's long-awaited, fan-anticipated project, Lead Me On Live 1989 is now available in all digital formats and as a 2-CD collection everywhere you buy or stream music. Fans can tune in to Grant's Facebook or Instagram page at 11:30am CST today for a live Q&A.
Originally recorded during her Lead Me On World Tour in 1988-89, and mostly unreleased except for a few songs included on the 20th Anniversary Edition of the original Lead Me On album, this new collection of 18 tracks from the Ft. Worth, TX tour stop includes the full-concert experience. 
Pulled from the vault 34 years later, this project allows fans their first opportunity to experience all the songs from Grant's biggest tour up to that point in her career.  Prior to Grant's global pop-star success with Heart In Motion, 1988-89 was a time of incredible audience growth for Grant, and found her pulling out all the stops for an unparalleled experience.
All salvageable film footage from the 1989 show is finally seeing the light of day, the first of which is the ‘music video’ for “Wait For The Healing” now available on YouTube. In all, there will be 15 full-length music videos released from the original film footage along with fun shorts, reels, behind the scenes and more.  All-new merch, fan packs and bundles for the project are also available to fans at

Says Grant, “When I first heard the recordings from 1989 from the Lead Me On Tour, the thing that bowled me over was just what a talented band I had on the road. I have loved every band configuration I’ve ever had on the road and all are so special to me, but there was something unique about that group of players and singers during the Lead Me On Tour.  First of all, there were so many of us on the stage and so many types of instrumentation like harmonica solos, flute solos, saxophone, mandolins, lots of keyboards and stacks of vocals, it just felt like one big family reunion every night.  The size and scope of the production and the big experience we were trying to create also made this tour very special. The energy of the crowd felt like an infinite number 8 with energy coming from us on stage, it circling through the audience and then coming back to us and it brought back so many amazing memories.  I’m so grateful we captured that moment in time.”

Grant hit the road on September 20th performing her iconic hits along with selections from the Lead Me On Live 1989 project.  On November 26th, Grant and her long-time friend and collaborator Michael W. Smith will begin their 2023 Christmas Tour.  Joined by special guest Michael Tait of the Newsboys, Grant and Smith will co-headline nine holiday shows, including their first appearance together on New York City’s iconic Carnegie Hall stage (Dec. 5).  Following this, will be one of Music City’s most treasured traditions with Grant and husband Vince Gill, their beloved “Christmas at the Ryman” residency. The 12-concert run is scheduled for December 13-14, 16-17, 19-20 and 22-23 and will once again feature matinee performances of the beloved show.
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 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. Most recently, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts included Grant as one of their five distinguished Honorees to receive the 45th Kennedy Center Honors for lifetime artistic achievements. For the remainder of 2023, Grant will be on the road closing out a 70 city tour across the country.  Earlier in 2023, Grant released her first new music in a decade, starting with the single "Trees We'll Never See,” (March) and most recently in April, "What You Heard.” Grant will release a full album Lead Me On Live 1989 on October 6th which captured a full live concert recording from the Lead Me On Tour in 1988-89.
