Review: Amy Grant's New Tennessee Christmas CD

We love Christmas music at our house. We start listening to it long before Thanksgiving, and Amy Grant's Christmas albums have always been family favorites. So, I was excited to have the chance to review her new Christmas album: Tennessee Christmas. After all, it's been nearly 20 years since her last Christmas album was released.

Yes, the title song on the new album is a remake of her 1983 song, from A Christmas Album. Along with that familiar song, Amy sings some old familiar songs, as well as some original Christmas music. Some of the songs are co-written by Amy herself, and her friends and family join in the recording. The album includes some spoken thoughts from Amy between song, and it has an air of coziness, warmth, love, and friendship.

The new songs on the album are To Be Together, Melancholy Christmas, Still Can't Sleep, Another Merry Christmas, Christmas For You and Me, and December. These are all warm, mellow songs.

The old, familiar songs include Tennessee Christmas, White Christmas, Joy To The World, I've Got My Love To Keep You Warm, Baby It's Cold Outside, Christmas Don't Be Late, and O Come All Ye Faithful. This mix of carols and fun Christmas standards just sounds and feels like Christmas to me. 

My husband and I have this CD playing on repeat in our bedroom. It's perfect for bedtime, reading, and resting in general.

If you're a fan of Amy Grant's, or if you are just looking for some new Christmas music, listen to the videos. Tennessee Christmas would make a great stocking stuffer for someone you love, or yourself!
