Amy Grant: Influences

Amy Grant: Influences

While her biggest inspiration exists on a plane high above pop, Amy Grant's songwriting influences come from masters of the craft in both the religious and secular realms. Missionary and worship-song writer Rich Mullins' ability to marry the sacred and the everyday directly influenced her early albums, while the plainly emotional poetry of Carole King and James Taylor have helped guide her lyric-writing.
