Nashville, Tenn. (April 25, 2017) - In recognition of her significant contributions to Nashville and its musical heritage, six-time GRAMMY winner Amy Grant was inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame. Joining Grant were longtime friend and CAA agent John Huie, and Bart Millard from GRAMMY nominated multi-platinum selling band MercyMe, who gave an incredibly moving and heartfelt introduction to Grant.

The ceremony took place in Nashville's Walk of Fame Park on April 27, 2017. Also inducted was Nashville philanthropist and businesswoman Martha R. Ingram.

About Amy Grant:
Amy 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 as well as the Music City 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.
