Vince Gill and Amy Grant: Inside Their Love Story

Amy Grant is best known for her career as a contemporary Christian music singer-songwriter who has also made appearances on the pop charts with love songs like “Baby Baby” (which had a popular music video and secured a Grammy award nomination) and “That’s What Love Is For” from Heart in Motion or her latest new song, “Say It With A Kiss.”


For 20 years, Amy Grant has been married to country music star Vince Gill. But they didn’t have the easiest road to happily ever after. Their love story is a prime example that with a little patience and faith, everything will work out as it should.

Grant and Gill met for the first time in 1993. Grant was married to Christian musician Gary Chapman at the time and Gill was married to country singer Janis Oliver. After 17 years of marriage, the Dove award winner and Chapman decided to call it quits due to irreconcilable differences.

For anyone thinking that Gill disrupted Grant’s marriage, think again. She told AARP that her first marriage “had been rocky from the get-go. I’d been holding steady for 15 years in something that was not easy to hold steady.”

After meeting Gill and performing a few times together around Christmas of 1993, Grant was immediately drawn to the country music singer. Their chemistry was undeniable and made everything worth the wait.
