After A 10 Year Hiatus Amy Grant Releases How Mercy Looks From Here

The foundation behind Amy Grant’s first full-length studio album in 10 years came from some advice given to her by her late mother – “sing something that matters.” The six-time GRAMMY Award winner, who has released her 18th studio album is dedicating ‘How Mercy Looks From Here’ to her mother and drawing from some of her favorite singers and songwriters in what critics are calling her most impactful release to date. The impressive array of talent includes Sheryl Crow, Vince Gill, Will Hoge, Carole King, Eric Paslay and James Taylor.

On How Mercy Looks From Here,’ Grant delivers one of the most powerful albums of her distinguished career. Produced by Marshall Altman (Natasha Bedingfield, Matt Nathanson), Grant’s compelling vocals make each song feel like a personal story shared by an old friend.

“I feel the most settled in life and creatively, I feel like a kid again,” Grant says.

“A lot of major life changes happened during these past few years.” Grant says. “So on this record, there’s zero filler. Every song has a real story behind it.”

The album’s lead track, ‘Don’t Try So Hard,’ features legendary songwriter James Taylor and continues its rise up the AC monitored chart, jumping 4 spots to #25 this week, and up 6 spots on the National Audience chart to #27.
