My Thoughts:


I wasn't familiar with Amy Grant prior to this album. I mean, I had heard of her and probably heard some of her songs (because she is so popular), but I didn't really know her music. I didn't know what to expect from Tennessee Christmas, but after listening to the entire album, I have to say I'm a little disappointed, because it's not something I will probably listen to much again.


I liked the song Christmas Don't Be Late and I liked the personal talking during some of the songs; but, Joy To The World, which I thought would be my favorite of the album, was just too slow of a version for me and felt sad/melancholy.


Overall, I'd have to say that, for me, the songs on this album are just too sad/slow and don't really give me that "Christmas" feel I like in Christmas music. If you are a fan of Amy Grant's music, perhaps you'll like this album...it just wasn't for me. :/

  1. OH I love Amy Grant! I have a couple of her tapes (and yes, I said tapes!) Now that is not saying that I would automatically love this CD but I will
    give it a listen to check it out.
    Thanks for the review. I didn't even know she had a new one out.
