“Amy Grant’s Tennessee Christmas – Presented by Hallmark Channel,” a one-hour musical special helmed by the multi-platinum-selling singer, songwriter will air Monday, December 3 (8 pm ET/PT). Grant will be joined by husband and fellow GRAMMY winner Vince Gill, country music and EMMY nominated television star Kellie Pickler and long-time friend, GRAMMY winner Michael W. Smith for an evening filled with rich performances. Grant will be sharing family Christmas memories and beloved traditions alongside shining a light on the charities that are close to her heart. Among those featured will be Song for Veterans, Scott Hamilton Cares Foundation, Appalachian Relief Fund, World Relief and Barefoot Republic, Grant’s own camp for kids. The hour long special is Executive Produced and Directed by Tom Forrest of Taillight TV, a Nashville-based production company who has worked with some of the biggest names in music. The special is a part of the network’s #1-rated programming event, COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS.
Grant recently stopped by the daytime “go-to” destination Pickler & Ben where she performed “To Be Together” from her most recent Christmas album, Tennessee Christmas. Grant will also appear on CMA Country Christmas (Dec. 10 8/7 CST ABC) and NPR's Tiny Desk Concert alongside being Woman's World December cover girl.
Grant and Gill are soon returning to the famed Ryman Auditorium for an unprecedented twelve-night stand of their beloved Christmas at the Ryman. The resonating holiday tradition is annually sold out and only a few tickets remain for this year's run. Tennessee Christmas (2016) marked her first all-new Christmas album in nearly twenty years and includes original offerings like “To Be Together,” “December,” “Another Merry Christmas” and “Melancholy Christmas.”
