Rock of Ages...Hymns and Faith (2005)

Updated: Sep 2, 2023


Rock of Ages...Hymns and Faith is the sixteenth studio album by Christian singer-songwriter Amy Grant, released on May 3, 2005 by Word/Curb/Warner Records.


It is the follow-up to her 2002 release Legacy...Hymns and Faith. The album contains some well-known hymns and a couple of re-recordings including "El Shaddai" (originally from Age to Age) and "Carry You." The title song features a duet by Grant and country music singer (and Grant's second husband) Vince Gill. The album topped the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart and peaked at number 42 on the Top 200 Albums chart. The album is once again produced by Brown Bannister and Gill.


Grant won her sixth Grammy Award (her first win since 1988's Lead Me On) for Best Southern, Country or Bluegrass Gospel Album for Rock of Ages... and a Dove Award for Inspirational Album of the Year in a tie with Bart Millard's Hymned, No 1.
