The Christmas Heart
Billboard Top 10 American Roots artist Grant Maloy Smith has crafted a unique Christmas album, THE CHRISTMAS HEART: Roots Music for the Holidays. Grant created innovative arrangements of eight Christmas classics, and wrote two new orginal songs to celebrate "reason for the season." Grant expanded his down-home Americana sound, blending it with Gospel, Jazz and even Caribbean stylings. Please listen to excerpts from the songs below and order an autographed and dedicated CD!
