In time to celebrate Valentine's Day, Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings has released Billy Joel’s She’s Got A Way: Love Songs - a new career-spanning collection of 18 love songs.

M&C is getting in on the romance by giving away three copies of the new album!
 
She’s Got A Way: Love Songs is drawn from three decades of recordings by music legend and composer/singer songwriter, Billy Joel. It is a perfect distillation of the artist's expressions of love and romance over the course of his life and career.  The album brings together some of Billy's finest and most heartfelt performances, iconic hits playing alongside under-appreciated deep catalog selections.
 
She’s Got A Way: Love Songs are the love songs, ballads and sentimental favorites comprising a dream Billy Joel playlist for old and new romantics alike, bringing new context to classics like "Just the Way You Are," "Honesty" and "She's Always a Woman" while rediscovering forgotten masterpieces like "Travelin' Prayer" (the b-side of the "Piano Man" single), Billy's version of "Shameless" (a #1 country smash for Garth Brooks), and the haunting instrumental "Nocturne" (from 1971's Cold Spring Harbor).
 
Having sold more than 150 million records over the course of a career spanning more than four decades, Billy Joel is one of the most popular recording artists and respected entertainers in the world.  Since signing his first solo recording contract in 1971, he's achieved 33 Top 40 hits, every one of them self-penned.

The American pianist, singer-songwriter, and composer is a six-time Grammy Award winner (with 23 Grammy nominations overall) and in 1990, was presented with the Grammy Legend Award. Inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1992, Joel was presented with the Johnny MercerAward, the organization's highest honor, in 2001. In 1999 he was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and has received the Recording Industry Association of America Diamond Award, presented for albums that have sold over 10 million copies.
 
For his accomplishments as a musician and as a humanitarian, Billy Joel was honored as the 2002 MusiCares Person Of The Year by the MusiCares Foundation and the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences.
 
On September 20, 2004, Billy Joel received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles, adding another milestone to his extraordinary career. "Movin' Out," a Broadway musical based on Joel's music choreographed and directed by Twyla Tharp, was nominated for 10 Tony Awards and took home two including Best Orchestrations--Billy's first Tony Award win--and Best Choreography.
