The Christmas Collection [edit]
by Amy Grant | Genre: Other | Release Date: September 30, 2008
 

Christmas music is synonymous with Amy Grant. Her classic arrangements, stirring original Christmas songs, TV specials, and widely attended Christmas tours over the years have all contributed to over 5 MILLION Christmas albums sold.

In 2007, all 3 of Amy’s classic Christmas albums were digitally re-mastered and sold over 50,000 albums in just 3 months. This year, Amy is pulling out all of the stops with a NEW collection of the best Christmas songs from all 3 catalog albums PLUS FOUR NEW SONGS.

Amy will bring back her highly acclaimed Christmas Tour with Vince Gill in December which has traditionally played to sell-out audiences. Also, look for TV appearances, radio specials, and a TV campaign that will drive retail traffic and sales of the new Christmas collection.

A SURPRISING MUST-BUY COLLECTION FROM THE CHRISTMAS MUSIC QUEEN | Posted November 24, 2008
Amy Grant knows Christmas. After all she has been recording and performing holiday music for 25 years, the equivalent of a lifetime (albeit a young one). And over the course of three holiday records (one Gold, one Platinum and one triple Platinum!) her voice has become synonymous with the Christmas season, not only in gospel music but also in the broader scheme of American music.

Selecting 14 of her favorite tracks from her popular holiday catalog and recording four new ones, Amy releases her fourth seasonal CD, The Christmas Collection, a surprisingly cohesive anthology. Sequenced smoothly alongside her older gems, Amy pairs up with longtime producer and friend Brown Bannister (MercyMe, Steven Curtis Chapman) to record the new cuts, rounding out the substantial 18-song set.

“Jingle Bells,” a la Barbra Streisand, opens the disc, introducing this theatrical arrangement to a new generation, while “Count Your Blessings” (from Bing Crosby’s White Christmas) adds a sentimental vintage pick to her already extensive list of recorded classics.

But on the top of every Amy-lover’s wish list is a couple of Christmas originals, and Grant does not disappoint. Enlisting her husband/country superstar Vince Gill as co-writer and guitarist, Amy croons on the vintage “Baby, It’s Christmas.” And “I Need a Silent Night” enlists the penmanship of “Breath of Heaven” co-writer Chris Eaton on a contemporary contribution that includes a tender Scripture reading by Grant’s 7-year-old daughter Corrina Gill.

As uneasy as fans might be about another “best of” from Grant, The Christmas Collection is a truly definitive compilation. Thoughtful sequencing, new packaging and liner notes and sensitive mastering create a seamless archive of songs that now sound even fresher then the originals. Forget dusting off the old records and cassettes. Purchase a copy of The Christmas Collection. The best memories are all right here. –Andrew Greer
