When you are not only a Grammy® Award-winning and multi platinum-selling artist, but also have three best-selling Christmas CDs while selling over six million Christmas albums overall what do you do? If you are Amy Grant, you hand–pick your favorites, record four new songs, and put them all together in one special CD. Such is the case with Grant’s THE CHRISTMAS COLLECTION, which will release nationwide on September 30th through EMI Music.
Featuring the first new Christmas music recorded by Grant in nine years (since 1999’s Christmas To Remember) THE CHRISTMAS COLLECTION features favorites including “Breath of Heaven,” “Grown Up Christmas List” and “Tennessee Christmas” along with new tracks produced by Brown Bannister including original tunes “I Need A Silent Night,” co-written with Chris Eaton (“Breath of Heaven”) including a special cameo from daughter Corrina as well as “Baby It’s Christmas,” a song Grant co-wrote with husband Vince Gill. The result is a classic Christmas album reminiscent of the Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, etc. albums of old (see full track listing below).
