Christian music album banned

Amy Grant is a popular American singer but has excelled in the fields of song writing-composing music-writing and acting.  She has become very popular in the singing of Christian Pop Songs and the 80s and 90s were here best years.  She has been referred to as the Queen of Christian Pop.  As of 2009, she had sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, won six Grammy Awards and 22 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, and had the first Christian album ever to go Platinum.  For the year 2016 she has just released her Christmas Album titled Tennessee Christmas. 

However, she is at present experiencing some delays and difficulties with this Album.  The reason being that Lifeway Christian Store is refusing to sell her Album.  LifeWay Christian Resources, one of the world's largest providers of Christian products, has decided their stores will not carry Grammy Award-winning artist Amy Grant's new Christmas CD,Tennessee Christmas, because it is not Christian enough, according to Grant's manager, Jennifer Cooke.  
Their response has been – it is their choice and it is okay.   According to The Tennessean, LifeWay spokesman Marty King confirmed that the retail and online stores would not be carrying the album but would not comment further on the decision.  They are of the view that in the course of a month they sell hundreds of authentic Christian goods and services to customers and that this Album has very little reference to Jesus and other Christian words and that as such they are not able to support it.  They are also of the view that the Christian song writer should pay more attention to this matter.
