Welcome to the new www.amygrant.com. We have been working very hard to refresh the site and to take into consideration some of the feedback we have been hearing from you. We hope you find this new layout to be easy to use, informative, fun, and a way to connect with Amy, her team, and also other Amy fans (aka GrantHeads)
In addition to launching the site, March is a busy month for us with the release of “Somewhere Down The Road,” Amy’s first release of mostly new material in several years. Thank you so much for all the positive feedback we are hearing about the first single, “Better Than A Hallelujah.” We are getting great initial response from Christian radio and are very excited about this song and how people are reacting to it. In fact, if you feel inspired we would love for you to request the song at your local Christian station if they aren’t already playing it.
In addition to the new single, “Somewhere Down The Road” includes several other new tracks, including a brand new duet between Amy and her daughter Sarah called “Overnight.” We are anxious for you to hear all of the new music and hope you like it as much as we do.
Amy and I will be hitting the road the last week of March to promote the release of the new record. Although our schedule isn’t quite firm yet, it looks like we will be making stops in Tampa, Atlanta, Dallas, and then off to New York for a few days of tv and other press. Amy is confirmed to perform the single on the CBS Morning Show on April 3 and we are looking to confirm a few additional tv appearances. We hope to see many of you during this whirlwind week!
We have also updated the tour page with several new 2010 concerts. Please check to see if we are coming to your area. It is always fun for us to see familiar faces out on the road so please grab some friends and come join us. Amy has put together a great band for these shows and plays a lot of new material as well as some of the longtime favorites.
EMI is also releasing some special catalogue collections this month. With so many physical retailers cutting down on the amount of titles they will keep in stock, these special collections are a way to keep Amy’s music on the shelves at an affordable price.
If you haven’t already become a fan on facebook or follow us on twitter, please do. Facebook and twitter are two of the fastest and most direct ways for us to communicate news and information with you. Plus it is a fun way to interact with other people who enjoy Amy’s music.
Speaking of interaction, we also hope you will consider joining “Friends of Amy” to become more involved with other Amy fans and to take part of some of the special member benefits. As a member of FOA you get to sign up for soundchecks before concerts, take part in special pre-sales for concerts, participate in message boards, and also stream Radio Amy, which includes some live concerts, interviews, and rare recordings. In addition, the FOA community is filled with some really great people who like to connect before and after concerts, etc. It’s a great place and all are welcome.
And finally, if you haven’t already pre-ordered the new release, I encourage you to take advantage of one of the many special presale offers being offered. Here on www.amygrant.com you can pre-order a collectors item package or you can pre-order on Itunes and receive an “ambient mix” of “Better Than A Hallelujah” for free.
Please look around on the site, explore, and stay awhile. We hope you like it and we will continue to add new information and features from time to time.
