Amy Grant
How Mercy Looks From Here (EMI)
FOR FANS OF: Carole King, Sheryl Crow, Alison Krauss
5 Stars
On her first full-length album in ten years, Amy Grant more than makes up for lost time telling several reflective, contemplative and wisdom-filled tales (many inspired by the passing of her dear mother). The revered veteran is also at yet another creative peak punctuated by authentic vocal delivery, understated but sophisticated production and a slew of all-star guests including Carole King, James Taylor, Sheryl Crow and hubby Vince Gill.
WE LIKE: “Our Time Is Now” (with Carole King)
