Last night, just minutes before she was to take the stage for Christmas at the Ryman, the 12-night, annual sold-out residency with husband Vince Gill, multi-platinum and 6x GRAMMY winner Amy Grant was surprised by her label, Capitol Christian Music Group (CCMG), with an award for 1 Billion Global Streams. 

With a career that spans more than 40 years, three multi-platinum albums, six platinum albums and four gold albums, Grant's total career album sales have exceeded 30 million -- all before streams- which now continue to give her career even more longevity as we enter a new decade.

Speaking to Grant's undeniable impact on the music industry, CCMG's Chairman and CEO Peter York commented, "We are so grateful to Amy for her heart and the music she's gifted to the world over the years.  Her music continues to have significant impact with listeners and we're thrilled to see it reach new fans every year.  We are honored to celebrate these 1 billion streams and thank all our streaming partners, which will continue to keep her music vibrant into the next decade and beyond."

For the first time ever this fall, Grant is released her incredibly popular Christmas projects in a limited edition vinyl box set, which York also noted will be completely sold out before Christmas.  The one-of-a-kind set features 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 is also available for the first time ever on vinyl.  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.

Grant recently reunited with Michael W. Smith to co-bill their popular Christmas tour where they were joined by special guest Marc Martel. Incorporating a full symphony orchestra at each performance, the tour was presented by Balsam Hill®. 

Grant and Gill's Christmas at the Ryman 12-date holiday concert run kicked off on Dec. 11 and closes on Dec. 23. This year's Ryman residency offered matinee times of the couple's holiday show on Dec. 15, 22 and 23.
