1979 Amy Grant – My Father’s Eyes

My Father’s Eyes is the second studio album by then-teenage Christian singer-songwriter Amy Grant, released in 1979 on Myrrh Records. My Father’s Eyes was a turning point in Grant’s career. It gave her first Christian number-one hit in the title track, as well as the Top Ten Christian hit “Faith Walkin’ People.” The album would be certified gold in 1987 and was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Gospel Performance, Contemporary.

In 2007, like many other albums by Grant, My Father’s Eyes was reissued by Sparrow Records, her current label.
