Nashville, Tenn. (October 15, 2013) - Offering hope in the midst of life's storms proves to be a central theme for Natalie Grant (http://nataliegrant.com/), a Grammy-nominated, five-time Dove Award winning Female Artist of the Year, who releases her highly anticipated album, Hurricane today, October 15, 2013 from Curb Records. Within hours of its release in May, the lead single, "Hurricane" hit number one on iTunes), and exploded onto the Billboard and MediaBase charts, making it the fastest rising single of her career. The record-breaking success of the single proves quite an accomplishment for one of the most successful crossover artists in gospel music who has maintained a strong foothold as a top selling icon in the industry.

"I've journeyed through a lot over the past three years," says Grant. "This record is full of my stories and is a reminder that no matter how dark the struggle may seem, I am not alone. And through writing these songs, I've been reminded that hope always wins."

Hurricane is a project that is woven together by songs that offer listeners a greater sense of hope, peace, and encouragement. With award winning husband/producer Bernie Herms at the helm of her latest musical endeavor, Grant poured her heart into this record and wrote on eight out of the 10 tracks. Based on her own real-life experiences , Grant voiced, for the first time, her struggle with post-partum depression after the birth of her third child, her feelings of inadequacy when it comes to parenting; her feelings of guilt over the ceaseless balance of work, family, motherhood and faith.

"This record is full of music that is positive and bright, both musically and lyrically, which is almost the antitheses to how I have felt for the last few years, but it is the result of hope and faith", Grant continues. "Even when everything seems dark, my faith keeps the light on. I feel these songs help me to tell that truth in a fresh way."

As a follow up to her successful Love Revolution, Grant's honesty and vulnerability prove to be a welcomed force amidst today's challenging times. But, it's not only the emotional connection that appeals to fans, worldwide. Grant's overwhelming success is grounded in her abilities as a powerhouse vocalist, a heart-gripping songwriter and a charismatic performer. A few of her recent hits include "Your Great Name," and Grammy-nominated "Alive."

In the wake of the instant connectivity of "Hurricane" at radio, Grant continues to prove her relevance and strong fan support through social media, as she maintains the highest level of actual fan engagement in her genre on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

2013 has already proven to be an exciting year for Grant as she continues Dare To Be, a revolutionary women's live event that draws tens of thousands of attendees across the nation. Grant continues to be an outspoken advocate for victims of human trafficking and founded the organization Abolition International in 2005 which is committed to providing quality restorative aftercare to trafficking victims both domestically and internationally. Fans can also look for Grant as she takes on a supporting role in the 2014 film "Persecuted." Produced by Gray Frederickson, an Oscar-winning producer who helped make "The Godfather" and "Apocalypse Now" and Directed by Daniel Lusko, Grant will co-star alongside James Remar, Bruce Davison, and Fred Thompson. In addition, Grant visited the nation's capital twice this year as a guest performer for President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, among others. Her most recent, was her performance at the "Let Freedom Ring" ceremony held at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington commemorating the 50th anniversary of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Coinciding with the release of Hurricane, Grant will make her Grand Ole Opry debut as Women Rock For The Cure in the fight against breast cancer on Tuesday, Oct. 22. The fifth annual "Opry Goes Pink" show will feature Grant alongside award winning artists including LeAnn Rimes and Pam Tillis as they perform in support of breast cancer awareness.
