Amy Grant “Somewhere Down The Road” Giveaway

I believe that my love for Amy Grant’s music is well-established. I just adore her, and her music has been a huge part of my life. But considering that nobody’s really here to accompany me on some long, rambling walk down my personal musical memory lane, I’m going to make a conscious effort not to bore you to tears with all the reminiscing and move right along to the bloggy business at hand.

You’re welcome for that, by the way.

A few weeks ago someone sent me a link to download a preview copy of Amy Grant’s new album, Somewhere Down The Road, and I absolutely loved it the first time I heard it. In fact, as soon as I listened to the songs, I called a friend of mine who also loves Amy’s music and said, “This CD is going to make you SO HAPPY.” Because do you know what? Listening to this CD made me feel like I was catching up with an old friend.

In some ways the songs on “Somewhere” remind me of Amy’s stuff that I listened to in high school and college – the searching and the tenderness and the grateful heart are still right there on the surface for the whole world to see. But there’s also something very different about this album, and the best way I know to describe it is that there’s a peace that permeates every single song. I know that probably seems like a weird thing to say, but if you listen, you’ll understand what I mean.

Here’s the simplest way I know to say it: this is my favorite Amy album in years – probably since “Lead Me On.” The songs just speak to me at this stage of my life – as a wife, as a mama, as a daughter, as a friend, and as a child of God. The lyrics are deep and strong, so much so that I was all teary-eyed when I finished listening to the album for the first time. And there’s a new version of “Arms of Love” that just about put me in the bed…the lyrics are even more meaningful now that I have a little more life under my belt. Not that I wasn’t incredibly mature when I was 12, of course.

So, to celebrate the wonderfulness of “Somewhere Down The Road,” the folks at Amy’s record label have put together a great giveaway for y’all. OH, THE PRIZES. THEY ARE SO DELIGHTFUL.

Here’s what you can win:

– One person will win a Flip camera (it’s even been personalized with the artwork from Amy’s album) and a copy of the new CD

– One person will win a 20-CD library of Amy’s music

– TEN people will win an autographed copy of the new CD

So if you’d like to enter to win one of these prizes, here’s what you need to do:

1) Leave a comment and tell me who your favorite singer was when you were a teenager.

2) That’s it!

Only one entry per person, please. I’ll leave the giveaway open until Tuesday, April 6th, at which point I’ll draw for winners using random.org.

Happy Amy, y’all!

p.s. You can listen to previews of the new album on iTunes and Amazon. You’re going to love it – it is SO GOOD!
