For the first time ever, multi-platinum and 6x GRAMMY winner Amy Grant is releasing her incredibly popular Christmas projects in a limited edition vinyl box set (October 11). The one-of-a-kind set will feature the over 3x platinum Home for Christmas as well as two other classic Grant Christmas projects, A Christmas Album and A Christmas to Remember. A special and nostalgic way to celebrate the projects that have made Grant synonymous with Christmas, the box set also includes a bonus 7" vinyl featuring two rare tracks – a cover of “Merry Christmas Darling” and “Let the Season Take Wing,” only available in the vinyl box set. The set also includes handwritten lyrics of fan favorite “Breath of Heaven (Mary’s Song)."
As one of the top-selling Christmas albums of all time, Grant's classic, Home for Christmas will also be made available for the first time ever on vinyl (Oct. 11). Originally released only on CD and cassette in 1992, the project features many of the biggest Christmas classics from Grant's four decades of making Christmas music, and something her fans have been clammoring for on vinyl for years.
Also this upcoming holiday season, Grant is reuniting with Michael W. Smith to co-bill their popular Christmas tour where they will be joined by special guest Marc Martel. Incorporating a full symphony orchestra at each performance, this musical mastery is being presented by Balsam Hill.
Immediately following, Grant and husband Vince Gill will begin their annual Christmas at the Ryman residency. The 12-date holiday concert run will kick off on Dec. 11 at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium and close on Dec. 23. This year’s Ryman residency offers matinee times of the couple's holiday show on Dec. 15, 22 and 23.
