“What You Heard” Coming April 28th
Multi-platinum, six-time GRAMMY-winner Amy Grant announced that she is releasing her first new music in a decade.
Since the age of 15, and now in her early 60s, Grant has really never stopped making music, and her most happy place to make music is with friends. While she has continued to release music, it has been 10 years since she’s released new songs, the last being her critically-acclaimed album “How Mercy Looks From Here.” That experience with producer and songwriter Marshall Altman was so rewarding and life-giving that Amy called on Altman again in 2023 to produce two new songs, including “Trees We’ll Never See,” and “What You Heard,” co-written with Natalie Hemby and Barry Dean, is scheduled to release April 28th.
“’Trees We’ll Never See’ is one of those life-lesson, encouraging songs that remind us that we are not alone, we have a purpose, and the seeds we plant today are so important,” says Grant. “Even if we ‘never see’ the fruit or the trees that grow from those seeds in our lifetime, it’s always important to invest in people, friends, family, and those we may never even meet.“ While it was penned by Altman and Michael White, “Trees We’ll Never See” is true Amy Grant in that the wisdom imparted in the lyric, paired with incredible musicianship (including Vince Gill on guitar) can be magical. This song has new color palettes rooted in singer-songwriter and Americana leanings which have always been part Grant’s music, but even more so now.Grant is currently in the middle of her spring tour run, with many dates already sold out. Throughout 2023 she will be hitting 70 cities across the U.S. and is excited to share new music and fan favorites.
“So much creativity has been put on hold in my life, for all kinds of reasons,” shares Grant when talking about the new music. “Last summer I was asked to sing on a new Cory Asbury song yet to be released. This might be one of the best songs I have heard in a long time. I was so glad they waited for me to heal up and get back to the studio. Inspired by Cory’s beautiful song, Marshall Altman and I started talking about songs that we’ve written recently that affected us. I played him one of mine. He played me one of his. His song was “Trees We’ll never See.” I loved it immediately and asked him if I could record it, and within two weeks, both songs were mixed & mastered!”
During a two-part interview with Craig Melvin on THE TODAY SHOW, conducted in her home, Grant excitedly shared that the first track, “Trees We’ll Never See,” will be available across all DSP’s on March 24th.

Amy Grant’s “Trees We’ll Never See”
About Amy Grant:Amy Grant‘s career spans more than 40 years and stretches from her roots in gospel into becoming an iconic pop star, songwriter, television personality and philanthropist. With three multi-platinum albums, six platinum albums and four gold albums, her total career album sales have exceeded 30 million and over 1 billion global streams. Grant’s chart success has been consistent throughout her career with six No. 1 hits, 10 Top 40 pop singles, 17 Top 40 Adult Contemporary tracks and multiple Contemporary Christian chart-toppers. In addition to her six GRAMMY® Awards, Grant has earned 26 Dove Awards (including four Artist of the Year Awards) and has been awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as well as the Music City Walk of Fame and the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Conventional wisdom has it that Grant put Contemporary Christian Music on the map becoming the first Contemporary Christian artist to have a platinum record, the first to hit No. 1 on the Pop charts and the first to perform at the GRAMMY® Awards. With that, her legacy as one of the most influential artists of the past four decades is assured. In 2020, the T.J. Martell Foundation – the music industry’s leading nonprofit to fund innovative medical research focused on treatments and cures for cancer – honored Grant with the Tony Martell Outstanding Entertainment Achievement Award at their annual Honors Gala. Most recently, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts included Grant as one of their five distinguished Honorees to receive the 45th Kennedy Center Honors for lifetime artistic achievements. This year Grant is hitting the road and will be performing in 70 cities across the country and releasing her first new music in a decade, starting with the single “Trees We’ll Never See.”
