Never Alone (1980)

Updated: Mar 22


Never Alone is the third studio album by Christian singer - songwriter Amy Grant, released in 1980 on Myrrh/Word Records. Produced by Brown Bannister.


By this point in her life, Grant had entered her second year at Furman University and developed a budding relationship with studio songwriter and future first husband Gary Chapman. The two songs from the album that they co-wrote obscurely describe their on-again, off-again dating relationship. Although Never Alone was not as popular as its predecessor, the 1979 album My Father's Eyes, it still managed to score a Top 10 Christian hit in "Look What Has Happened to Me."


Never Alone, along with her previous albums Amy Grant and My Father's Eyes, appeared on Billboard magazine's Top Inspirational Albums chart and topped it there, giving Grant back to back number one albums. In 1981, Grant earned her second Grammy nomination for Best Gospel Performance, Contemporary and was nominated for two Dove Awards for Female Vocalist of the Year and Pop/

Contemporary Album of the Year.
