Amy Grant is an American contemporary Christian pop singer-songwriter and musician who has a net worth of $30 million. That is a combined net worth with her husband since 2000, Vince Gill. As of this writing, Amy Grant has sold over 30 million albums worldwide. She first came to fame in the 80s with such hit Christian songs as "Angels," "Father's Eyes," and "El Shaddai," and then crossed over into mainstream pop with the successful album "Unguarded."

Early Life and Education

Amy Grant was born on November 25, 1960 in Augusta, Georgia as the youngest of four sisters. Toward the end of the decade, the family settled in Nashville, Tennessee. As a teenager there, Grant went to Harpeth Hall School, where she wrote and publicly performed her first song, "Mountain Top." She went on to attend Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina before transferring to Vanderbilt University back in Nashville. Grant ultimately dropped out to pursue her career in music.

Albums in the 80s and 90s

About a month before she turned 16, Grant was offered a recording contract by Chris Christian of Word Records, who had overheard a demo tape she gave to church youth-leader Brown Bannister. Grant went on to release her self-titled debut studio album in 1977. Two years later, she released "My Father's Eyes," which included her first Christian number-one single, "Father's Eyes." Grant's third album, "Never Alone," came out in 1980. After releasing a pair of live albums in 1981, she had her breakthrough in 1982 with "Age to Age," which topped Billboard's Christian albums chart for 85 weeks and became the first Christian music album by a solo artist to be certified Platinum. Moreover, it launched Grant's signature song, a cover of Michael Card's "El Shaddai." She next released "A Christmas Album" and "Straight Ahead," the latter of which spawned the hit single "Angels." In 1985, Grant successfully crossed over to mainstream pop with her album "Unguarded," which included the single "Find a Way." Returning to Christian music, she released "Lead Me On" in 1988.

Grant scored her biggest commercial hit in 1991 with her album "Heart in Motion," which peaked at number ten on the Billboard 200 and number one on the Christian albums chart. Its first single, "Baby Baby," became Grant's biggest worldwide hit song. "Heart in Motion" produced four other successful singles: "Every Heartbeat," "That's What Love is For," "Good for Me," and "I Will Remember You." The album went on to earn a Grammy Award nomination for Album of the Year. Grant next released "Home for Christmas" in 1992. That was followed by "House of Love" and the more down-tempo "Behind the Eyes." Grant's last album of the 90s was "A Christmas to Remember."
