About 2 weeks ago, I booked a job doing hair and makeup for a Lifetime show that was to shoot at Amy Grant and Vince Gill’s farm. Sure, I was looking forward to it, but I had no idea what an enjoyable day it would be. Working in television and hair and makeup has given me the opportunity to work with many Nashville celebrities in some capacity (except Dolly Parton, WHEN AM I GONNA GET THAT PHONE CALL!?), so this is a big statement to make but… I think she is my favorite ever of all time.
I have never seen a superstar so unaffected by their success, so genuine, so wise, so vulnerable, and so interested in others. (She wanted to know all about what preparing for Miss USA entails and even recommended her favorite salad bowl from Trader Joe’s! Ha!) I swear to you every time that woman opens her mouth something profound comes out. In addition, prior to seeing her in person, I didn’t realize how beautiful she is. Totes gorg!
The purpose of the interview we shot was for her to talk about her experience with her parent’s dementia. She shared so many touching personal stories and had most of the crew in tears multiple times.
Amy Grant is coming out with her first full length studio album in 10 years and has some pretty great people contributing to the project including: James Taylor, Carole King, Sheryl Crow, Vince Gill, and Will Hoge. Basically, I am so impressed by her in any way one can possibly be impressed. She is a fantastic model of what a human being should be!
