Biography

It's rare to find a teen phenomenon who successfully makes the transition to adult superstar, and nearly impossible to find an artist who continues to remain relevant and innovative more than three decades later. Yet throughout her career, Amy Grant has always been in a class by herself.

Grant’s early work in the Christian music field helped define the genre, and her crossover ... Read more in Amazon's Amy Grant Store

Editorial Reviews

2010 release from the Gospel music vet containing six brand new songs, two previously unreleased tracks, three of her best loved story-songs and a new recording of the classic 'Arms Of Love'. The theme for the album is stories and journeys. Amy has always been a great storyteller and many of her most impactful songs have come from her own journey as she sings about the honesty of life, its joys and struggles, and ultimately the hope she has found in faith and love. The songs on Somewhere Down The Road read like journal entries that will resonate with anyone who grapples with wanting answers to life's toughest questions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amy Grant [Somewhere Down The Road] March 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Amy Grant returns with Somewhere Down The Road, a unique album full of brand new songs, previously unreleased songs, re-recordings of classics, and rounded out with 4 of her best loved story-songs. I've been listening to Amy Grant for over 25 years as I first heard "El-Shaddai," "Thy Word" and "Tennessee Christmas" when I was in high school in 1985. Like many avid Christian music collectors, I agree that 1988's Lead Me On was one of the most influential albums in the history of Christian music. Amy truly paved the way for all female artists and today I hear her influence in some of my favorite artists including Sara Groves and Bethany Dillon, who released two of my top 10 albums of 2009. So, where does that put Amy today in 2010? That's the main question I've been asking myself as I've been thoroughly enjoying her first new album since 2003's Simple Things.

For me, the beginning of the album completely reminds me why I'm such a long-time fan of Amy's music, as first song and single "Better Than A Hallelujah" addresses the topic of being honest with yourself & God. Her vocals are still stellar and the poignant message behind this song has me hooked again, similar to Amy's classic songs "Lead Me On" and "Saved By Love," both in catchiness and transparency. Next song "Overnight" really grabbed me as Amy's vocals are complemented by her first ever duet with her 17 year old daughter Sarah Chapman. The song is about learning to wait for answers to questions and is a wonderful song with great relevance in passing down advice from mother to daughter. Having 3 young daughters myself, who all love Amy's music, this is a great new song that really moves me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Come into her world... March 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan of Amy Grant ever since her album "My Father's eyes" on which she showed the world that Christian music could be well produced and contemporary sounding without compromising on the message of the Gospel.

"Somewhere down the road" is a meditative largely acoustic affair, far removed from her Pop/Rock sound of albums like "Unguarded", "Lead me on" or "Heart in motion", and comprising new songs, a few old ones re-worked, and an unreleased track (the beautiful "Come into my world" in which she invites us into her normal and cluttered life if we are brave enough, accompanied by guitar only).

Her dusky voice is as rich and great sounding as ever, as the re-worked "Arms of love" (with fuller instrumentation and harmonies here) shows when compared to the original from 1982's "Age to age".

"Overnight" finds her trading verses with her 17 year old daughter Sarah Chapman, while she sings of resilience on "Hard times" (as hard times come to everyone), while "What is the chance of that" is a gritty Rocker. These songs remind me of songs from "Behind the eyes".

Other standouts are the tender titletrack (originally on "Behind the eyes"), the Blues-tinged "Third world woman" (in which she imagines what it would be like be one, backed by some great guitar work; this is my favourite song), "Find what you're looking for" (with lovely quivery guitars, in which she tells us "there's so much good in the worst of us, so much bad in the best of us" so it doesn't make sense for any of us to criticize the rest of us), and the beautiful cover of MercyMe's "I can only imagine" done here as "Imagine" (with a few stanzas changed) as a medley with "Sing the wondrous love of Jesus". This medley appeared on her beautiful collection of hymns "Legacy... Hymns and Faith".

The album cover is designed to look like a photo album with a painting on the cover done by Amy. This is an intimate and heartfelt collection that uplifts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than I could have hoped for... March 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Like a letter from an old friend...I couldn't wait until I got home to sit down and delve into this journey with Amy...I can't say enough good things about this record. The new songs, Better Than A Hallelujah, Overnight (a stunning duet with Amy's daughter Sarah Chapman...the first time Amy has dueted with any of her children), Hard Times, Third World Woman and Find What You're Looking For (co-written by folk singer Mindy Smith and the folksy feel of the song is perfectly suited for Amy's rasp and honest delivery) are such a natural progression of "Amy Grant" music...they fit into Amy's catolog so well, I find it hard to articulate. The "new to cd" songs, Unafraid, What Is The Chance Of That and Come Into My World are long-awaited and fit into the fabric of this tapestry that Amy has woven so beautifully...Arms Of Love, for any Amy fan a favorite from the early 80's, is by far the better of the two versions of this song. Gone is any tinge of the 80's sound and instead a beautiful almost prayer-like song that is now nestled in an acoustic bed by Vince Gill. Jenny Gill joins her father and sings a haunting harmony. Also included on this CD are 3 of Amy's best-loved songs from Behind The Eyes and Legacy. Every Road, Somewhere Down The Road and Imagine fit in with the rest of these songs, it's almost as if it were meant to be...I truly enjoyed every word in this letter from an old friend, I feel like I know her heart a little better and got a little much-needed insight into my heart at the same time. Don't hesitate...buy this record, if you ever were an Amy Grant fan...this is a glorious return to form.
