Amy Lee Grant (born November 25, 1960 in Augusta, Georgia) is an American songwriter whose music has strong Christian themes.
Grant made her debut in 1977 as a teenager.
In 1982, she released her breakthrough album, [[Age to Age]], which would become the first Contemporary Christian music album to be certified platinum.
Also in 1982, she married her song-writer first husband, Gary Chapman.
By 1985, her music began to reach a wider audience, as her album [[Unguarded]] crossed over onto mainstream charts. This feat was reproduced in 1991 when her album [[Heart In Motion]] became a best-seller and the single "Baby Baby" became a number one hit.
Throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, Grant continued to record pop-oriented albums.
Grant and Chapman separated and divorced in 1999.
In 2000 Grant married Vince Gill, who had divorced country singer Banis Gill of Sweethearts of the Rodeo.
Grand made a return to gospel music until 2002, with the record Legacy...Hymns and Faith. In 2006, Grant hosted her own reality television show on NBC, called Three Wishes.
As of 2007, Grant remains the best-selling [[Contemporary Christian music]] singer, having sold over 25 million records worldwide, and Heart in Motion is the best-selling Christian music album as well, matching sales of 5 million.
