Amy's got a brand new bag ... full of old stuff

So...apparently Amy Grant is now with Sparrow Records. This would be much bigger news if we were living in 1987, but I still find it interesting. She's apparently the "most successful contemporary Christian music artist of all time."

She's sold thirty million "units" to date, which sounds impressive. I'm not sure exactly what qualifies as a "unit," but it definitely makes her sound like the most successful contemporary Christian music artist of all time.

Sparrow was ready to release remastered versions of 17 of Amy's old albums on August 14 "in both physical and digital formats," which doesn't make a lot of sense to me. Putting that music on iTunes wouldn't be stupid, but really ... who's going to buy a new CD copy of Heart in Motion?

It's also just way too much Amy for me handle.

I found this quotation from EMI Music Marketing’s senior VP of catalog marketing Bill Gagnon quite amusing: “We are thrilled to have Amy Grant join our roster of other great artists, such as The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra, and more."

Because really, when you think of the Beach Boys and Frank Sinatra, you immediately think of Amy Grant. They're like peaches and cream.

In other news, there's a chance Amy will soon be branching into ring tones.

In other news, I saw one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse today.
