GIVEAWAY-Amy Grant-The Christmas Collection


I LOVE Christmas music, it really gets me in the spirit of the holiday! Amy Grant's Christmas songs are some of my favorite and I was very excited to learn she has just recorded 4 new songs, her first new music in 9 years. Her husband, Vince Gill, plays the guitar on one of the songs that they co-wrote together. These 4 songs, along with her favorites, are in her new CD The Christmas Collection. I listened to the CD last night and it is wonderful! "Breath of Heaven" (Mary's Song) made me tear up as I remembered many Christmases past singing it in the choir at our church. Being a pregnant woman and listening to Mary's words gave a new meaning that brought chill bumps to my arms. I really encourage you to go out and grab yourself a copy, you won't be disappointed!

OR...

Would you like me to send you a copy to get you in the Christmas spirit? Amy's sweet folks sent me a special copy to give away to one special Magnolias, Marriage and Manhattan reader. All you have to do is leave a comment here with your favorite Christmas song by Friday!

These are my favorites of her new songs-

I Need A Silent Night

Count Your Blessings

Listen carefully to the lyrics, they both have a great message!

I have the other Amy Grant Christmas album. Love Breathe of Heaven as well but right now what I keep repeating in my car is the song Aspenglow by John Denver on his Rocky Mountain Christmas Album.

I too can't get enough of Christmas music and Amy Grant's voice is amazing!! I adore any version of O Holy Night - beautiful.

Oh, if that makes you cry then you definitely need to listen to Faith Hill's new song "A Baby Changes Everything". It's one of the most beautilful songs I've ever heard.

I love O Holy Night the most ... but I adore Christmas music!!

amanda said...

I love love love love love love love Christmas music. my radio is set to it all the time from here until the New Year. But, I need some CDs for the house too. My favorite Christmas song is what child is this?

I have started to feel so connected to Mary's story for a number of reasons even though I'm not pregnant. A secret part of me (well not so secret anymore) really wants to be pregnant on Christmas sometime. I can't imagine the connection you must feel.

Ang said...

Little Drummer Boy is my all time favorite song and also TN Christmas. I love Amy Grant! and this would be a perfect addition to my Christmas music

sammiebell said...

My 2 favorite fun Christmas songs are Santa Baby and I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus. I also love all of Amy Grant's Christmas music.

Sherri's Southern Style said...

I LOVE Christmas music! Breath of Heaven is definitely one of my favorites - it's on "My Playlist" on my blog right now! Amy has such a great voice! I just heard a new song by MercyMe the other day called "Joseph's Lullaby" that was pretty awesome from the male perspective...

SarahNash said...

I love O Holy Night, because my daughter (who is a vocal performance major) sings it at church on Christmas Eve! I also like Donny Osmond's A Soldiers Christmas.

Hillcrest Acres said...

Amy Grant's other Christmas CD is my all time favorite. "Grown Up Christmas Wish" is a favorite sond along with "Breathe Of Heaven" and "Sleigh Ride". Every Christmas song she sings is fantastic!! I can't wait to hear her new songs.
