Natalie Grant NASHVILLE, Tenn.— Curb recording artist and GMA’s reigning Female Vocalist of the Year, Natalie Grant, returns February 12 with Relentless, her highly anticipated seventh album. Produced by Grant’s husband, Grammy Award-nominee and Dove Award-winner Bernie Herms, as well as her longtime collaborator, Dove Award-winner Shaun Shankel, Relentless is Grant’s first studio recording in nearly three years.

Showcasing a more progressive pop/rock sound than ever before, Grant wrote or co-wrote a majority of the project’s selections. Each song is hallmarked by her continued desire to communicate a direct message of Hope, honesty and purpose.

“I wanted Relentless to be more raw and edgy—more authentic and less pristine,” Grant says. “Sometimes I think people assume women are supposed to always sing the introspective, soft songs—which they do beautifully—but I wanted moments where I could be bold and strong and show there’s a powerful, passionate message that a woman could deliver. That’s what I set out to do on Relentless.”

The project’s debut single, "In Better Hands," has already been a #1 hit at Inspirational radio, and the song is currently #4 on R&R’s Christian AC National Airplay chart.

Family Christian Stores is offering customers the opportunity to pre-order Relentless at nationwide retail locations or via A portion of the proceeds from all orders placed before February 12 will benefit Grant’s Home Foundation. A priority of her ministry platform, Grant created The Home Foundation in 2005 to raise awareness of and help combat international human trafficking.

Grant’s critically-acclaimed 2005 watershed release, Awaken, is currently #4 on Billboard’s Top Pop Catalog chart, selling more than 8,000 units last week alone.

Christian music’s top-selling Adult Contemporary female solo artist in 2005 and 2006, Grant was the Gospel Music Association’s Female Vocalist of the Year in both 2006 and 2007. One of the genre’s biggest names, she is among a select few to have also achieved a formidable foothold at mainstream media and radio.
