Amy Grant's "Somewhere Down the Road": Music Review

Having long forsaken her mainstream pop roots, Amy Grant is still strumming her guitar and figuring out the complexities of life. On her latest album, Somewhere Down the Road, six songs are new, along with re-imagined versions of favorites.

This is certainly for the lovers of Grant, although there is something to offer even marginal fans. I was mesmerized by the simple melody of “Overnight”, featuring Grant's daughter, Sarah Chapman. In it, she encourages those waiting on a miracle: “If it all just happened overnight / You would never learn to believe”.

“Third World Woman” recalls a deep and soulful side, much like Ashley Cleveland. The “Imagine” medley, first made famous in part by MercyMe, is sweet and reminds me of early '80s Grant.

Over all, there is a warmth and comfort to the familiar songs and her down-home guitar licks are seasoned with a hint of country. It won’t necessarily bring you anything you haven’t already heard from Grant, but it’s a nice addition to a reflective Saturday afternoon.

Album Highlights: “Overnight” and “Somewhere Down the Road”
