Monday March 29, 2010


For the first time in our history as a station, we had the privilege of hosting Amy Grant live in our studios this morning!

Amy Grant Morning Cruise


We weren't interested in "doing an interview." We were interested in having a conversation with one of the most successful and remarkable people in Gospel Music. A pioneer "CCM" artist, Amy has  won 6 GRAMMY awards and 25 Dove awards. Her new release, Somewhere Down the Road, is her 21st album. And she chose to debut her songs the day before the release with The Morning Cruise.


LISTEN   Our first conversation with Amy was about her shared heritage in Sarasota and with The JOY FM. Man, she has a good memory! 

LISTEN   Amy talked about "Overnight," the song that features her daughter Sarah.

LISTEN   Carmen surprised Amy with "the dress." Amy Grant Hollywood star dress

LISTEN   Bill had to fess-up about his encounter with Amy years ago on an elevator headed to the 9th floor.   

LISTEN   Ever had a "Home Alone" incident? Amy has!
