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.

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:

  1. Be sure to turn your TV on at 9 P.M. tonight for Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love. You’ll love it!

  3. I just got the CD over the weekend, AND got to see her Christmas concert with Michael W. Smith and Jordan Smith in Indianapolis Saturday (ticket was a birthday gift!) It is good, but her first two Christmas albums will always be my favorites.

  6. I just read yesterday that this album was deemed not Christian enough to be published by Christian publishers. (Do you speak of publishing music?) I think I’d prefer plain Christmas carols. You don’t need to enter my name in the give-away.
