Ok, this post is published under risk of ridicule from many of my hipster friends. I will admit that making a post about Amy Grant is pretty out of character for this blog. I'm much more likely to comment on Sigur Ros or Coldplay and my iTune purchases are most often such performers as Lady Gaga, Paramore, Death Cab for Cutie, Bon Iver, etc.
But when I saw Amy Grant was releasing her first album (Somewhere Down the Road) in seven years I thought I would check it out. I listened to the previews of two songs on iTunes and ordered the whole album. I know, I've only listened to the title track and "Better than Hallelujah" so the rest of the project could suck... not.
There is something about Amy's voice and song writing skills that gets to me. I gotta say, I love Amy.
Those of you, my friends, who think you are too cool for Amy Grant -- go hide in the closet with headphones on and check her out.
