Amy Grant — wow. She takes me back. She first recorded her hit “Tennessee Christmas” in 1983, the year I graduated from high school. I went to one of her concerts back in that era, and loved her singing “El Shaddai” and “Sing Your Praise to the Lord.” She got a bit edgier with “Baby, Baby,” but I followed her there (although I always had to skip a few songs on that album, “Hats” coming to mind). In the CD jacket, she mentions that — are you ready for this? — she is now a grandmother.
Amy Grant Tennessee Christmas
Now, 33 years after her first recording of “Tennessee Christmas,” Amy is back with another Christmas album. I enjoyed it overall. I’ve always liked “Tennessee Christmas,” and I enjoyed the renditions of familiar carols on the CD as well. I wasn’t as excited about her original pieces (sorry, Amy), but honestly, at Christmas, I really pretty much like to hear songs I already know. A few of the songs (“Melancholy Christmas” and “December”) were sort of downers as well — “I don’t want to feel lonely, but I’m here alone,” and “On this Christmas Day, you are nowhere near.”
Still, if you and Amy Grant go way back — like she and I do — give the CD a listen to see what you think.
Here’s a video of one of the new songs Amy has written for this album:
