Multi-platinum selling, GRAMMY® winning superstar Amy Grant will make an appearance on the brand-new and highly rated talk show, Katie, on Fri., Oct. 19. Katie is the No. 1 new talk show on television and is helmed and hosted by veteran TV personality Katie Couric.
Many know Grant her for her iconic 30-year career, but in recent years, she’s been caring for her father who is struggling with dementia. On this episode of Katie, she opens up about this intensely personal, challenging and rewarding experience, a situation 42 million other Americans are also in as they provide care for their aging loved ones. Plus, she will perform the world premiere of a new song she wrote, “How Mercy Looks From Here,” inspired by this experience. Viewers can check local listings via the station finder here:
Grant is wrapping her three-month weekend run with “Women of Faith” at the beginning of November, where she has headlined the tour also featuring Mandisa, Patsy Clairmont, Mark Lowry and others. Soon thereafter, she will embark on a holiday tour, including select dates featuring symphony-backed performances. In addition, Grant and husband Vince Gill will bring their popular “Twelve Days of Christmas” show to the Ryman stage for “Christmas at the Ryman” three nights this December. This marks the sixth year the couple—who celebrated their twelfth wedding anniversary this year—has performed the holiday special.
Currently at work on a new project, Grant will release her first studio album in three years in early 2013.
