New Album 'Somewhere Down The Road' Coming From Amy Grant

Jan 18 2010

Amy Grant will release her new album 'Somewhere Down The Road' on 30th March. With six Grammys, numerous Dove Awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and numerous other accolades to her credit, Amy Grant is an American music icon who has erased lines between genres and earned the respect of fans and peers with her honesty, vulnerability and ceaseless creativity since she first hit the spotlight as a fresh-faced teen with a guitar three decades ago.

In a press release, Amy's label described the new album as, "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 four new songs, several previously unreleased gems from her musical vault and a newly recorded version of 'Arms of Love'. The new album also serves up four poignant treasures from Grant's existing songbook, including the powerful title track."

The artwork for the CD cover features a painting done by Amy herself several years ago. Left hanging on an office wall for years, Amy remembered the painting during an art direction discussion and suggested using it rather than a photo of herself.

Discussing the album, Amy said, "From a work stand point, I've had the amazing opportunity that anything I've ever wanted to try, for some reason, the door has opened. I love music as much as I always have, but I feel very contented when it comes to work. What brings the sizzle back to me is a great idea and it can be somebody saying, 'hey, I have this idea for a song!' As soon as they speak the words I go, 'Ahhh, that's great. We've got to sit down and do it right now.' That's how I felt about this project."

The first single from the new project, 'Better Than A Hallelujah', penned by Chapin Hartford and Sarah Hart, is Grant's first new radio single since 'Simple Things' in 2003. 'Somewhere Down The Road' was recorded in the new studio Amy and her husband Vince Gill built in their Nashville home, and for the first time includes a duet with her 17-year-old-daughter Sarah.
