Grant’s 35-plus-year career has gone in a lot of directions. She started as a Christian singer and songwriter, with a streak of hit records and her first Grammy in 1982.
Grant made her pop breakthrough with her 1991 album "Heart in Motion," which generated the hit singles "Baby Baby," "Every Heartbeat" and "That’s What Love Is For."
She’s gravitated back to gospel music in recent years, with such albums as "Somewhere Down the Road" (2010) and her latest, "How Mercy Looks From Here," released just last month. She’s also got a foot in the country-music world, with her marriage to Nashville star Vince Gill. She was also host of the reality TV series "Three Wishes" in 2005.
Grant is performing at the fair’s Grandstand on Friday, Sept. 6, starting at 7:30 p.m. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. at the state fair website. Tickets are $24 in advance, and $29 on the day of the show.
The Utah State Fair runs Sept. 5-15 at the Fairpark, 1000 W. North Temple, Salt Lake City.
