90.9 KCBI FM says
Longtime friends and songwriting collaborators Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith captivate thousands of people each year at their magical holiday concert which features traditional Christmas classics like “Silent Night” and “Jingle Bells” and treasured original songs like Grant’s “Tennessee Christmas” and “Emmanuel.” In recent years, “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” has been dedicated to our troops and has brought many audience members to tears.

Michael W. Smith served as Amy Grant’s keyboardist for her 1982 breakthrough Age to Age Tour. Smith went on to become a chart-smashing contemporary Christian solo artist and more than three decades later Smitty (as his friends call him) and Grant share a collective 67 GMA Dove Awards and nine Grammy Awards between them. The tried-and-true friends also share Franklin, Tennessee as their hometown.

Jordan Smith mesmerized the coaching panel and the audience with his brilliant “Chandelier” Blind Audition on season nine of “The Voice.” Smith was very candid about his Christian faith throughout his whirlwind journey on the Emmy-winning reality series. Smith, 22, became the fastest-selling artist to ever hail from “The Voice” and his gospel covers of “Great is Thy Faithfulness” and Amy Grant’s breathtaking original Christmas song “Mary Did You Know?” Smith will also release his debut Christmas album to coincide with the tour, which is a follow up to his No. 2 Billboard 200 debut solo album “Something Beautiful.” Amy Grant is slated to release a new Christmas album this fall as well.

Grant and Smith have given to many charitable causes throughout their careers. This year’s spectacular holiday vent will feature a full symphony orchestra and proceeds will help benefit Operation Christmas Child, which delivers shoeboxes of Christmas gifts to needy children around the globe.
