Biography

American singer-songwriter, musician, author, media personality and actress, best known for performing Christian music. She has been referred to as "The Queen of Christian Pop". She put out gospel albums for a decade before crossing over to popular success with the 1991 platinum effort, "Heart in Motion." As a gospel singer, she featured words of joy over smiley-face melodies such as her LP "House of Love," released August 1994.

The youngest of four kids of a prominent Nashville cancer specialist and his wife, Amy grew up wanting to have a family, live on a farm and play guitar and sing. With a natural talent, she had her first record contract at 15.

In 1982 she married Gary Chapman, also known in the Christian music genre. They had three kids, Matthew, Millie and Sarah. Their marriage seemed heaven-made. Grant had already recorded Chapman's song "Father's Eyes" when they met at a party in 1979. When they wed, it was at the time that Grant's breakthrough Christian album "Age to Age" was scaling the charts and Chapman often accompanied Grant on tours. It was sorry news when rumors of a rift began to circulate in the '90s and their friends hoped that they would work through it but the couple announced on 12/30/1998 that they had come to the end of their 16-year marriage. In the fall of 1999 she started seeing Vince Gill, another award-winning country singer, appearing with him at his annual charity golf tournament in Oklahoma City. They married 3/10/2000, 4:30 PM in Nashville. Besides her three children, (one boy and two girls,) he has a teen daughter by his first marriage.

On 6/12/1995, during a routine eye exam, she learned that she had a detached retina in her right eye. She cancelled 17 concerts and had eye surgery three days later to repair and save her vision.

Grant had a baby girl on 3/12/2001, her fourth child and the first with Vince Gill.

Grant became host of a TV show, a dream-granting reality series, "Three Wishes." The show debuted on NBC in the fall of 2005 but was canceled at the end of its first season because of high production costs. After Three Wishes was canceled, Grant won her 6th Grammy Award for Rock of Ages... Hymns & Faith. In a February 2006 webchat, Grant stated she believes her "best music is still ahead".
