Jamie Grace Christmas EP Now Available at Retail Stores Breakout Star Jamie Grace Ushers In the Holidays Early with Re-release of EP, Christmas Together
Singer also has tunes featured on other holiday compilations
Smash hit "Hold Me" included on new WOW Hits 2013
Nashville, Tenn. (Oct. 18, 2012) – GRAMMY® Nominee and Best New Artist Dove Award winner Jamie Grace is gearing up for Christmas a bit early this year, with the release of her holiday EP, Christmas Together, hitting stores on Tues., Oct. 16. The project, which bowed as a digital-only release last year, features four tunes and is available at Christian retailers.
Also in the Yuletide spirit, the young star is staying busy by contributing to multiple compliations, including that of the talented Gotee Records family on ‘Tis the Season to be Gotee Too. Grace contributes two songs from her EP, "O Come, O Come Emmanuel" and "What Child Is This?" with labelmates Abandon Kansas, to the label’s second annual Christmas album, which is available digitally and at Christian retailers this week. Plus, Grace and her sister, Morgan Nichols, debut their country side project--dubbed Harper Still--with their version of "I'll Be Home For Christmas."
Grace's song “Christmas Together,” also from her EP, is featured on the Word Entertainment compilation, A Very Special Christmas: Bringing Peace on Earth, also available now. In addition, a new recording of Grace singing “Away In A Manger” is included on the International Justice Mission’s Christmas collection, It Happened One Night, which can be found exclusively at Family Christian Stores.
The breakout success of her GRAMMY®-nominated, No. 1 smash hit “Hold Me” also assisted in propelling Grace to win her first GMA Dove Award—for New Artist of the Year—earlier this year, in addition to a Billboard Music Award nomination. Now, “Hold Me” can be found alongside other Christian music hits on WOW Hits 2013, which was released on Sept. 25. Featuring 30 songs on two CDs, the WOW Hits 2013 compilation provides Christian music fans hit songs from today’s top Christian artists.
As a result, in part, of the huge success of “Hold Me,” Grace has experienced a major wave of acclaim and popularity in 2012, even finding her making an appearance on ABC's hit talk show 'The View.' The ever-building momentum behind Grace includes a GRAMMY® nomination, two chart-topping singles and No. 1 status on three different charts (National Audience, AC and CHR), and nods to Grace from celebrities including country superstar Reba McEntire and 'The View' co-host Sherri Shepherd, who along with co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck has "Hold Me" as her ringtone.
This fall, Jamie Grace has been a featured guest on the "Eye On It Tour" with TobyMac and Chris August, and later she will join the TobyMac "HITS Deep Tour" alongside Brandon Heath, Mandisa, Britt Nicole, Chris August and Group 1 Crew.
