During the same week her husband, country-music star Vince Gill, was scheduled to be in Cleveland with icon band the Eagles, veteran contemporary-Christian-music artist Amy Grant announced a show for March 1 at Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park.
(Hey, nothing screams “hard rock” like … Amy Grant? And does she bring a big gambling crowd to the place? Well, we digress.)
Some info on Grant from a news release from concert promoter Live Nation:
Early on, Grant’s iconic voice became instantly recognizable in both the Christian and pop worlds, some even dubbing her the “Queen of Christian Pop.” Over the years, she has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, including three multi-platinum, six platinum, and four gold. Her chart performance has also been consistent throughout her career, boasting six No. 1 hits, 10 “Top 40” pop singles, 17 “Top 40” adult contemporary tracks and multiple contemporary Christian chart toppers. In recognition of such success, Grant has received 6 GRAMMY Awards and 26 Dove Awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and a star on the Music City Walk of Fame. Additionally, she was most recently inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.
