One of top-selling Christmas albums of all time, Grant's ‘Home for Christmas’ also available as stand-alone debut vinyl release
For the first time ever, multi-Platinum, multi-Grammy Award winner Amy Grant is releasing her successful Christmas projects in a limited edition vinyl box set on Oct. 11. The one-of-a-kind set will feature “Home for Christmas,” as well as two other classic Grant Christmas projects “A Christmas Album” and “A Christmas to Remember.”
A special and nostalgic way to celebrate the projects that have made Grant synonymous with Christmas, the box set also includes a bonus 7-inch vinyl featuring two rare tracks: a cover of “Merry Christmas Darling” and “Let the Season Take Wing,” only available in the vinyl box set. The set also includes handwritten lyrics of fan favorite “Breath of Heaven (Mary’s Song)."
As one of the top-selling Christmas albums of all time, Grant's classic, “Home for Christmas,” will also be made available for the first time ever on vinyl (Oct. 11). Originally released only on CD and cassette in 1992, the project features many of the biggest Christmas classics from Grant's four decades of making Christmas music, and something her fans have been clamoring for on vinyl for years.
Also this upcoming holiday season, Grant is reuniting with Michael W. Smith to co-bill their popular Christmas tour. They will be joined by special guest Marc Martel. Incorporating a full symphony orchestra at each performance, this musical mastery is being presented by Balsam Hill.
Immediately following, Grant and husband Vince Gill will begin their annual “Christmas at the Ryman” residency. The 12-date holiday concert run will kick off Dec. 11 at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium and close Dec. 23.
This year’s Ryman residency offers matinee times of the couple's holiday show on Dec. 15, 22 and 23.

Amy Grant's career spans more than 30 years and stretches from her roots in gospel into becoming an iconic pop star, songwriter, television personality and philanthropist. With three multi-Platinum albums, six Platinum albums and four Gold albums, her total career album sales have exceeded 30 million.
Grant’s chart success has been consistent throughout her career with six No. 1 hits, 10 Top 40 pop singles, 17 Top 40 adult contemporary tracks and multiple contemporary Christian chart-toppers.
