    Any Amy Grant Fans Out There?

    Just wondering.....I've been a fan for near 30 years (had a huge crush on her in the 1980's).

    Just wondered if anyone else enjoyed her music.

    I was in the 8th grade when she was popular. That was blast from the past!

    I loved her music when I was younger. Has she done anything new recently?

    Right on!
    Well, I was in Hollywood yesterday with my wife's cousin....he doesn't drive and wanted to hit some stores there (Amoeba Music on Sunset and Cahuenga and another on place on Melrose, and then Sam Ash on Sunset). So, in order to do this, I told him I had to at least to to Hollywood & Highland...and he was more than happy to do that. So, outside of Virgin Megastore, there it was - shining before me Amy Grant's STAR on the HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME. I took a picture with my phone. Also, as I compose this, I have a LIVE DVD of here's playing - her most recent offereing on DVD - Time Again. Nice DVD.

    I am not so happy with her newer stuff. But, my absolute fav is her first xmas album. Nothing like playing that all Christmas long (and usually in July too)

    Wasn't sure about the newer stuff either - liked the more 'spiritual' ones in the early days....but I like the stuff she's got out now.....there is this awesome song she released in 2004 - I think it's called "The Water" - really deep I thought - no pun intended. But I thought it was a very good piece.

    Christmas in July is always a thing we used to do. We used to pump up the A/C at home and listen to Carols and watch Christmas Movies!

    I had a crush on her too, until she dissed my boy Gary Chapman ( I loved his show on TNN, Prime Time Country...he tried so hard to be funny and sometimes was too) and ran off with Vince Gill?

    eh crush is over, next!
    Three-time MVP Larry Bird, noting that Bryant has been the NBA's premier player for years, told Sports Illustrated's Dan Patrick before this week's announcement, "When someone told me the other day that Kobe hadn't won an MVP trophy, it sort of made me feel like I wanted to throw mine away."

    Ouch. Yeah, Gary Chapman has an awesome voice - but she and Gary Chapman has a lot of problems for many many years in their marriage. She actually wanted to call off their wedding, but he coerced her into marrying. About 3 years into the marriage, she found out he had a serious drug habit (cocaine). Marriage almost ended in 1986.

    Grant has stated that she and Gill had an 'inappopriate friendship' but wasn't physical.

    They are married now. I know that Grant and Chapman had MANY issues. As of late, Gary Chapman is on one year probation and got a DUI in September, which I just found out. Was found with Marijuana in his pocket and a recently used marijuana pipe. Currently being accused of fraud in and in chapter 11 and his second wife, Jennifer Pittman Chapman, has filed a legal separation.

    I feel bad for the fella', but who's to say that negative stuff like this didn't pervade he and Amy Grant's marriage. He never liked being in her Super Star Shadow.

    I also figure that I don't know what went on behind the doors of the Grant/Chapman household. I'm sure the walls would have a tale to tell if they could speak.

    Not a huge fan, but she's got some good songs that I like to listen to. Only time I can't stand to listen to her is Christmastime, because all the stations play is her music, constantly, and it drives me up a wall after 2 days.
    Press today is so concerned with cool vs. not cool that they're starting to forget good vs. bad. I'm not sure I'll ever be "cool", but I will always tirelessly strive to be "great". - Josh Groban

    She was the 2nd concert I ever went too.

    That was back in 1982, in Fargo, ND.

    right on. I liked her until she cheated on Gary. Even if it wasn't "inappropriate" she definitely cheated emotionally.
    I do love her Christmas CDs though.
    Of course, Garth did the same thing, and I still like him so eh.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
