GRAMMY® nominee and Best New Artist Dove Award winner Jamie Grace launches her sophomore effort, Ready To Fly, to major critical praise today.
The 22-year-old Georgia native’s career lifted off only a few short years ago after her discovery by TobyMac and her hit single “Hold Me (feat. TobyMac)” garnered GRAMMY® and Dove Award nods.
Jamie teamed up with producers Christopher Stevens (TobyMac), Chuck Butler (Royal Tailor), David Garcia (Britt Nicole) and Dave Wyatt (TobyMac’s DiverseCity Band) to piece together the 13-track album (purchase here) devoted to a more mature and yet sunny and effervescent place of life that she resides. The album is available today at Target, Family Christian, iTunes and Amazon.
Jamie shares on Ready To Fly: “I have a deeper relationship with the Lord now, and I talk to Him about even more stuff than I did when I was younger. It’s cool to get to share a little bit more of my diary pages, but I am also excited because there are a lot of songs on this record still that are giddy and show my quirky personality.”
The exuberant and infectious charm of Jamie Grace has caught the eye of several media outlets who are already declaring their praise for Ready To Fly. Earlier this month, Jamie premiered the title track from her album, “Ready To Fly (Avery’s Song)” on USAToday.com.
This Thursday, January 30 at 9:30 AM ET, Jamie Grace will appear on 700 Club Interactive’s show on ABC Family, performing tracks from the album and sharing more of her story. This mid-February, Jamie will also grace the cover of CCM Magazine.
Jamie’s lead single “Beautiful Day” has also shown its propensity to “fly,” skyrocketing to 100,000 units sold and holding the No. 1 spot on the Hot AC/CHR chart for two straight weeks soon after its release. Jamie released a lyric video last fall for “Beautiful Day” that combines her performance of the song with animated hand drawn lyrics and imagery here: http://smarturl.it/JGBeautifulDay.
Jamie has also debuted her official lyric video for the track “Do Life Big”:
