I'd like to congratulate Amy Grant and Vince Gill on the birth of their daughter. I understand that Amy was in the process of recording a new album. When will it be released, and what will it sound like? Also, will she be touring?

The couple welcomed Corrina Grant Gill into the world March 12 of this year. Grant definitely has been hard at work on her next album, tentatively scheduled for release in late winter or early spring 2002. As yet untitled, the A&M Records release promises to offer an upbeat, "real poppy" sound, according to Grant's management. It hasn't been decided yet if she'll tour in support of the new album, though she and Gill were on the road from Nov. 30 to Dec. 16 with their wildly popular holiday show, A Christmas to Remember. Born in Augusta, Ga., Grant grew up in Nashville, Tenn. By 16, she had released her first contemporary Christian album. Grant has sold around 20 million records worldwide, won five Grammy Awards and 18 Dove Awards.
