Groves to embark on the “In The Round Tour” with Andrew Peterson and Bebo Norman this fall.
It’s been over 15 years of making critically acclaimed music and talented singer-songwriter Sara Groves is still consistently painting powerful, intimate stories through her songs. This week’s release, The Collection is a combination of celebrating her career thus far and culling together the best and brightest from her last 10 studio albums. In addition to 23 songs from Sara’s repertoire, the two-disc release includes four brand new songs: “Strangely Ready,” “Blessed Be The Tie,” “Lay It Down” and “Kindness of Strangers.”
Over the past few weeks, Groves released new live performance videos from select songs off The Collection. Take a peek at New Release Tuesday’s reveal of “Blessed Be The Tie” here and Christian Post’s reveal of “All Right Here” by clicking here.
Adding to the excitement of the release, see just a few of the glowing praises for The Collection:
“Sara has such a beautiful way of weaving her life in song. The Collection is a combination of where she has been, with hints of where she is going. The Collection doesn’t let the listener down. For it’s not a rehashed compilation of mishmash tunes. There is something greater going on here. It’s a story. An amazing poignant story that continues to point to a much greater Story.”
- Family Christian
“For (Groves), every honest, love-infused, savored moment plays out in song. The Collection brings some of the most beautiful of Groves’ tracks together and as her unusually smooth and soothing voice sings her story, the listener can relate.”
“The Collection is a place to start for the unacquainted; and for the fan there is so much here to reminisce about…”
“Through riveting stories of compelling characters combined with personal lyrics and infectious melodies, Groves skillfully and eloquently addresses everyone’s cornerstone passions — life, love, family and faith.”
- Christopher Long Blog

Sara’s album, Fireflies & Songs was named “Album of the Year” by Christianity Today’s esteemed list of Top 12 Albums of the year. Her 2011 release, Invisible Empires, pulls from the singer/songwriter’s uniquely beautiful writing process of sorting through the layers of life through a new perspective. The project led to Sara being heralded as one of Christianity Today’s “50 Women To Watch” in 2012.

This fall, Sara brings together her 15-year discography into a special two-disc release entitled The Collection.
