Music Monday: "I'm With You" by Nichole Nordeman and Amy Grant and Preview of the new CD "Music Inspired by the Story"

If you listen to K*LOVE, you've probably been hearing this song on the radio for a couple months.  It's a beautiful duet by Nichole Nordeman and Amy Grant, titled "I'm With You," and it tells the Bible story of Naomi and Ruth. The song is part of a compilation CD that releases on September 27, 2011.  Music Inspired by The Story is a 2-CD set featuring 18 new songs and  showcasing some of the most talents artists in Christian music today, including Matthew West, Mark Hall, Brandon Heath, Bart Millard, Francesca Battistelli, Mac Powell, Mandisa, Todd Smith, Natalie Grant, and many more!  I can't wait to get this CD -- I have a feeling it's going to be something VERY special!  You can listen to music samples at

To find out even more, here is a great article about the upcoming CD -- 24 Artists Unite To Unveil (Music Inspired By) THE STORY

"THE STORY is an unparalleled project from the best-known artists in Christian music. The songs on THE STORY take timeless biblical stories and provide a completely new context into how God's story of love and redemption intersects with our story of brokenness and failures resulting in a new story of hope and rescue. The CD contains 18 all-new songs written by multiple Dove Award-Winners Nichole Nordeman & Bernie Herms, produced by Brown Bannister & Bernie Herms, and a stellar line-up of artists across all major labels. (Music Inspired By) THE STORY is based on a collaboration with authors Randy Frazee (The Heart Of The Story) & Max Lucado (God's Story Your Story) as well as Zondervan's bible The Story."
