Christmas With Michael W. Smith & Amy Grant
After the Contemporary Christian artists and longtime friends teamed up for a few holiday gigs last year, Smith promised they’d do more concerts together in 2015, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Smith is continuing to support his fourth Christmas album, Michael W. Smith & Friends: The Spirit of Christmas, which was released last fall. The duet album features appearances from Vince Gill, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Carrie Underwood and more. Grant is featured on the track “Almost There.” Smith also put out the LP Sovereign in 2014.
