  1. Unguarded

    Unguarded is the ninth album by Christian music singer Amy Grant, released in 1985 on A&M Records. It is Amy's first album released by A&M. When Unguarded was released in 1985, Amy Grant was probably the most popular star in Contemporary Christian music, recording songs with religious lyrics in the pop/rock style of the day. With this album, however, the religious content of the lyrics was scaled back as compared with her two previous regular studio albums, Age to Age and Straight Ahead. The album track "I Love You" was Amy Grant's first secular love song from her own pen. Despite this, the album's lead-off single, "Find a Way," was a number one hit on the Christian radio charts. Four other singles from the album were also Top Ten Christian radio hits. The aggressive mainstream style of the songs on Unguarded, combined with a heavy promotional campaign on the part of the album's distributor in secular outlets, A&M Records, helped three of its singles reach the mainstream charts. "Find a Way" was a Top Ten hit on the Adult Contemporary chart and peaked at No. 29 on the Billboard Hot 100, while "Everywhere I Go" was a Top Thirty AC single and "Wise Up" was a minor charting single on the Hot 100. Unguarded would be certified gold in September 1985, and platinum in June 1986.
