Grant to appear on ‘The Doctors’ to discuss her open heart surgery
To celebrate the 35th anniversary of one of Amy Grant's most iconic and successful albums, the Grammy-winning "Unguarded," Grant is releasing a double-disc, white vinyl, limited-edition on Oct. 16. The project will be available through all streaming services on Oct. 30. Featuring the full original album, along with four live tracks and commentary from Grant talking about the recording process and more, this is a must-have item for fans. Full track listing is below.
Tomorrow, Grant will also appear on a brand-new episode of “The Doctors.” She will discuss the open-heart surgery she had this summer, how she's feeling, and why she wants others to get their regular heart check-ups. Check local listings here to see when and where “The Doctors” airs.
Also this fall, Grant's “Tennessee Christmas” will be redelivered on Oct. 23, including two songs that were originally Target exclusives, "From the Cold" and "What Child Is This," while a new recording of Grant singing "The Christmas Waltz" with Mark Martel will be serviced to radio on Nov. 6. The song will be available for sale and streaming as a two-track single with "Silver Bells," Grant, Martel and Michael W. Smith's 2019 No. 1 Christmas collaboration.
"Unguarded" 35th anniversary track listing:
Grant's career spans more than 40 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 and over 1 billion global streams. 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.
In addition to her six Grammy Awards, Grant has earned 26 Dove Awards (including four Artist of the Year Awards) and has been awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as well as the Music City Walk of Fame.
Conventional wisdom has it that Grant put contemporary Christian music on the map, becoming the first CCM artist to have a Platinum record, the first to hit No. 1 on the pop charts and the first to perform at the Grammy Awards. With that, her legacy as one of the most influential artists of the past four decades is assured.
In April of 2016, Grant celebrated the 25th anniversary of her iconic hit “Baby Baby” with a worldwide release of the song featuring pop sensation Tori Kelly. “Tennessee Christmas” released in late 2016, marked Grant’s first all-new holiday album in nearly 20 years.
This past February, The T.J. Martell Foundation – the music industry’s leading nonprofit to fund innovative medical research focused on treatments and cures for cancer – honored Grant with the Tony Martell Outstanding Entertainment Achievement Award at its 2020 Honors Gala.
