More About Amy Grant

Amy Grant Born on November 25, 1960, in Augusta, Georgia. Amy Grant has helped revolutionize contemporary Christian music.

Harking from Nashville, Tennessee, Amy was part of a close-knit, religious family. She had a strong grounding in God's Word through her Church, would would become a major influence on her music.

Grant learned guitar as a teen, and worked at a local recording studio. It was during this time that she made a tape of her music for her parents, which had been discovered by a producer with Word Records, a Christian music label. This led to a recording contract, and her first album was released in 1977. The self-titled album was a big success in the world of Christian music. With her unique style, Grant charted new territory. She fused elements of existing genres of gospel, hymns, and Jesus music—which used rock music to convey Christian teachings—to create a fresh, new sound, not heard before. Her songs are often deeply personal as well as reflecting her spiritual faith.

Grant continued recording and performing throughout high school and college, and has made a significant career for herself releasing numerous popular albums over the years.

She also earned several Dove Awards from the Gospel Music Association (GMA), including for Performer of the Year.

Amy Grant has published or released items in the following series...
  1. Daywind Soundtracks Christmas
  2. Daywind Soundtracks Contemporary
  3. Sound Performance Soundtracks
  4. VeggieTales

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wonderful album, solid effort  Jul 15, 2009
Amy Grant's follow-up to her classic 1982 album Age to Age, "Straight Ahead" has the misfortunate of following one of the greatest albums in Christian music history. That aside, "Straight Ahead" is a wonderful effort on its own merits, and also showcases Amy's continuing evolution from Christian to pop, albeit somewhat gradually. Noticeably more aggressive than "Age to Age," "Straight Ahead" is still lyrically in sync with the Contemporary Christian music of the day.

"Where Do You Hide Your Heart" is a prime example of Amy's growing departure from straightforward Christian pop, as it combines a mainstream synth pop feel with lighter but noticeable spiritual content. "Jehovah," one of my personal favorites, proves to Amy's audience that she has definitely not abandoned her core CCM audience, with its strong religious message and sing-a-long feel that makes it easily compatible with a Sunday morning church service. "Angels" fits just as well in that category, erasing all speculation why it was such a huge hit on Christian radio when the album was first release. The title track is somewhat ambiguous in its religious message, but is still an inspiring song and pleasant to listen to.

"Thy Word" is easily the star of the album. Co-written by Grant and Michael W. Smith, it simultaneously provides the simple message of God's protection for His children and a moving piano accompaniment that makes it hard for any subsequent track to top its moving content. "It's Not A Song," "Open Arms," and "Tomorrow," while still pleasant to listen to, may be the weakest songs on the album, but every good LP has filler tracks and this is no exception. Meanwhile, "Doubly Good To You" and "The Now And The Not Yet" are nice closers for the album, wrapping up a collective effort that truly shines God's word. In retrospect, "Straight Ahead" is a transition for Amy Grant from the pure religious "Age to Age" to the hopeful, harder-edged Unguarded, and this album shines beautifully in this effort, truly a gem for anyone who's a fan of Christian music.
His Word But Amy's Music!  Apr 28, 2009
"Age to Age" is Amy's best album but this is probably her second best studio album. This includes three songs I had in "The Collection": "Where Do You Hide Your Heart", "Angels" and "Thy Word" - they all are great but my favorite song is however "Jehovah". It is a long song but still - I didn't notice it at first. Amy's voice is incredible - this album is a great gospel pop album to start but also Amy's "Age to Age" and "My Father's Eyes" are must have.
Stars: Jehovah, Angels, Thy Word
Great christian slick music  Feb 8, 2008
This is a great follow-up to "Age to age" with the arrangements taken a little bit further. It reveals a certain amount of progression in the use of digital instruments but with the same balanced cooperation between music and lyrics as the predecessor. The lyrics are even more based on straight foreward messages, and on this album Amy Grant really stands up for her beliefs. This is very much something to light up your everyday, and even without the lyrics it's a great musical experiance.
