Cute, but needs more music!
2 December 2008 | by JanieJane96See all my reviews

This is a cute holiday TV special from Amy Grant that features songs from her first Christmas album, the "Animals' Christmas" album she performed with Art Garfunkel, and her album "Unguarded". The songs are woven within a plot line: Amy and her (then) husband, Gary, are in Montana for a concert when their truck breaks down in front of a horse farm. They meet up with a few of the towns people and decide to join them for their Christmas concert. The show features some famous faces including Art Garfunkel and Ed Begley, Jr. as a shop owner. Though some of the non-song scenes are entertaining (like the amusing shop scene), I wish these parts were filled with more songs instead. I felt as if only half of the show was devoted to actual songs. And two of those songs weren't even Christmas-related. But overall, a nice program. Definitely a must-see for Amy fans. You can find it on video as "Amy Grant's Old Fashioned Christmas".
