Revamped label to focus on worship music.
Word Label Group is re-launching Myrrh Records. The label was founded in 1972 as a division of Word Records and shuttered in 2000.
Myrrh was best known for years as the home of multi-platinum Christian/pop act Amy Grant, who signed with the label as a teen.
In its new incarnation, Myrrh will focus on worship music. Jim Van Hook, Word Entertainment CEO, says he wants the company to serve as a resource for the church. Plans call for the revitalized label to release new product later this year.
