NASHVILLE, Tenn. (January 10, 2024) - Country singer-songwriter Whey Jennings will release a second holiday season-inspired single this Friday, January 12, with a remake of John Newton’s classic Christian Hymn, “Amazing Grace.” Out by Dirt Rock Empire.

Listen To It

Jennings soothes his listener with his acoustic rendition of the hymn, continuing his work with renowned Nashville Music Producer and Composer Gary Carter leading the production. Carter, whose credits include Faith Hill, Marty Stuart and Randy Travis, also produced Jennings’ critically acclaimed 2023 EP, Just Before The Dawn.

“Amazing Grace” is one of the most widely sung and recorded songs spanning the genres, with iconic recording artists such as Elvis Presley, The Oak Ridge Boys, Al Green, Willie Nelson, Diana Ross and The Maverick Choir - a supergroup collaboration from 1994’s Maverick soundtrack, which included Whey’s Grandfather Waylon Jennings dueting with Tammy Wynette on the second verse.

“‘Amazing Grace’ is a beautiful and spiritual song that has touched my soul for as long as I can remember,” Jennings said. “It’s a song that I’ve always felt the need to record, and this just seemed like the right time to finally do that, given everything that’s happened in my own life over the last few years.”
