Amy Grant's website shows that she will be performing at the Utah State Fair this September, and today she releases her first album in over a decade.
The six-time Grammy Award winner is dedicating "How Mercy Looks From Her"e to her mother and drawing from some of her favorite singers and songwriters.
The array of talent includes Sheryl Crow, Vince Gill (her husband), Will Hoge, Carole King, Eric Paslay and James Taylor. Grant dives in to street week with appearances on "CBS This Morning" (5/17 and 5/18) and the nationally syndicated lifestyle program, "The Better Show" (5/17) as well as "Morning Joe" on MSNBC (today), ABC Radio, Keep the Faith radio and more.
Grant also recently conducted an in depth interview for Lifetime TV's "The Balancing Act," (5/28) as well as their "Hollywood Watch" program (5/31). Additionally, Grant is also scheduled to appear on "The View" and "The Chew" early this summer. Here are just a few of the multitudes of praises on "How Mercy Looks From Here": "...her singing has an easy grace that's well served by these songs of love, loss, faith and resilience, which benefit from Marshall Altman's spare, glowing production."- USA Today "Grant's most emotionally compelling release since 1988's "Lead Me On"... proves that sincerity is not overrated and that open-hearted storytelling will outlast any musical fad."
