1980 Amy Grant – Never Alone

Never Alone is the third studio album by Christian singer Amy Grant, released in 1980 through Myrrh Recordings.

By this point in her life, Amy had entered her sophomore year at Furman University and developed a budding relationship with studio songwriter Gary Chapman. The three songs from the album that they co-wrote obscurely describe their on-again, off-again 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 Ten Christian hit in “Look What Has Happened To Me.”
