Nashville, Tenn.

The 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards will take place live from Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2012, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
“Just two years ago I was sitting on the floor in my dorm room with a pen and paper writing the lines 'I love the way you hold me...' When I found out that those lyrics and that melody were nominated for a GRAMMY ®, I absolutely couldn't believe it,” explains the first time nominee. “Even so, knowing that God has surrounded me with such an amazing team (TobyMac, Gotee Records, Know Good Company, producer Chris Stevens), and a family who inspires and supports my music more everyday, I believe this is another way that God is holding me - and I am loving it."
Jamie Grace’s latest single “You Lead” has garnered the No. 2 spot on the CHR radio chart. Jamie Grace performed her GRAMMY ® nominated song “Hold Me” on The 700 Club earlier this week. To view the performance in support of her latest album One Song At A Time, click here.
