NASHVILLE, July 29 — The newest music video from six time GRAMMY ® winner Amy Grant will be broadcast exclusively on GMC TONIGHT (Friday, July 30) at 8 p.m. ET.

In addition to the broadcast debut, there will be an encore airing of the music video on Sunday, August 1 at 1 p.m. ET preceding “A Song From the Heart,” a movie starring Grant. She will also be featured on the Top Spin 10 Countdown Show on Friday, July 30 at 12pm ET and Saturday, July 31 at 8am ET. A re-airing of Grant’s Faith & Fame will also add to the weekend full of coverage on the channel, airing at midnight ET on Friday, July 30.

The song “Better Than A Hallelujah” comes from Grant’s acclaimed March release titled Somewhere Down the Road. Grant’s first new, non-holiday music in seven years garnered praise from People magazine saying “this is a soothing set of inspirational pop, as the pure-voiced Grant exudes a simple warmth on tracks…” and Billboard magazine raving “…all the songs on this collection weave together into a beautiful musical tapestry — each as warm, thoughtful and gently compelling as the woman singing them…. we are all better for Grant having shared this emotional road map.”

The video has already struck a chord with readers of Ladies’ Home Journal’s www.lhj.com. Below is just a sample of viewer feedback from the online debut of the music video on www.LHJ.com:

“WOW…is all I can say! This video is the perfect accompaniment to this song. It eloquently depicts those situations in life where our mistakes, tragedies or regrets cannot be undone and we are left with our sad realities where only God can give us comfort. It brought me to tears.”

“Beautiful Song. Beautiful Video. Beautiful Artist”

“As always, Amy’s songs bring me healing right where I need it!”
