NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Amy Grant is set to release her first full album of all new songs in 10 years.

The Grammy-winning Christian recording artist's "How Mercy Looks From Here" will be available May 14.

The album was produced by Marshall Altman and includes guest vocalists James Taylor, Carole King, Sheryl Crow, Will Hoge and Eric Paslay, who wrote the only song not penned by Grant on the album. Grant's husband, Vince Gill, also makes an appearance.

The Nashville-based singer-songwriter is among the most successful Christian artists with multi-platinum album sales and crossover success on the pop music charts.

Grant started the album after a conversation with her mother, who passed away in 2011, and promises "no filler" in a news release announcing the record.
