Amy Grant's first full studio project in 10 years debuted at No. 1 on Christian SoundScan and No. 12 on the Billboard 200 for the week of June 1.
Her 18th studio album, How Mercy Looks From Here (Sparrow Records/Capitol Christian Distribution), has sold more than 26,000 units since its May 14 release.
Grant "has delivered a beautiful record of compelling songs that document her life experiences over the past decade since her last studio record," says Capitol Christian Music Group President Peter York. "It's an authentic album of songs she's written that allow the listener to peer deeply into her heart and connect emotionally with her journey."
How Mercy Looks From Here, which features James Taylor, Sheryl Crow, Will Hoge, Carole King, Eric Paslay and Grant's husband, Vince Gill, has won praise and national media attention.
Grant, a six-time Grammy winner, is scheduled to appear June 20 on The View and July 19 on The Chew, both on ABC.
