CCM stalwart and pop superstar Amy Grant will have her own star on Music City on April 27. Grant will be the 76th stars immortalized in cement in Walk of Fame Park, which sits between the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and Bridgestone Arena in Downtown Nashville. She wil be joining a legendary club of music figures that includes Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, Little Richard - as well as Grant's husband, country star Vince Gill.
Grant has called Nashville home for most of her life, and the entirety of her career. Grant's career spans more than 30 years and stretches from her roots in gospel into becoming an iconic pop star, songwriter, television personality and philanthropist. With three multi-platinum albums, six platinum albums and four gold albums, her total career album sales have exceeded 30 million. Grant's chart success has been consistent throughout her career with six No. 1 hits, 10 Top 40 pop singles, 17 Top 40 Adult Contemporary tracks and multiple Contemporary Christian chart-toppers.
In addition to her six GRAMMY® Awards, Grant has earned 26 Dove Awards (including four Artist of the Year Awards) and has been awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Conventional wisdom has it that Grant put Contemporary Christian Music on the map becoming the first Contemporary Christian artist to have a platinum record, the first to hit No. 1 on the Pop charts and the first to perform at the GRAMMY® Awards.
With that, her legacy as one of the most influential artists of the past four decades is assured. In April, Grant celebrated the 25th anniversary of her iconic hit "Baby Baby" with a worldwide release of the song featuring pop sensation Tori Kelly. Tennessee Christmas released in late 2016, marking Grant's first all-new holiday album in nearly 20 years.
