Nashville, Tenn. (March 3, 2015) ‹ Six-time GRAMMY® Award winner Amy Grant teamed up with her country superstar husband, Vince Gill, for the release of Be Still And Know…Hymns & Faith, set to debut April 14. The album features several tracks from previously released projects Legacy…Hymns & Faith and Rock of Ages…Hymns & Faith, which have sold more than 800,000 copies combined. The April release will include two newly-recorded songs produced by Gill: “Power In The Blood” and “Be Still And Know.”
“Hymns were so much a part of my childhood,” Grant said. “We sang hymns like people sing the national anthem before a ballgame; it was hymns before everything. We sang hymns in our homes, in our church three times a week there would be some Sunday nights where all we did was sing hymns. These songs are for people who grew up with the hymn tradition to remind them how inspiring they are.²
Grant’s longtime friend, GRAMMY® Award winner Michael W. Smith will join her this May for various shows featuring songs from the album. Additional information will soon be announced here.
Be Still And Know…Hymns & Faith follows Grant’s 2014 fall release of In Motion: The Remixes, which soared into the Top 5 on Billboard’s Electronic Albums Chart. Grant’s 2013 critically-aclaimed studio album How Mercy Looks From Here featured James Taylor, Carole King, Sheryl Crow, Eric Paslay, Will Hoge and Vince Gill and debuted at No. 12 on the Billboard 200 Chart. The album also topped the Billboard Christian chart, making it a record-setting 16th No. 1 album for Grant in the Christian genre.
Later this year, Grant will host “A Nashville Weekend,” welcoming fans to her hometown for a three-day event featuring concerts and special events. The September weekend will offer fans an unforgettable Nashville experience all while benefiting Grant’s Helping Hands Foundation. For more information, or to book your ticket, click here.
