AMY GRANT HAS BABY, BABY GIRL GRAMMY-WINNING RECORDING STAR NAMES
 DAUGHTER AFTER THE LEGENDARY MINNIE PEARL
 NASHVILLE, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- It was announced today that A&M Records multi-Grammy award-winning recording artist, Amy Grant, gave birth on Sunday, Oct. 11, at 4:09 p.m., to Sarah Cannon Chapman, a 7-pound, 2 1/2-ounce baby girl. Sarah Cannon is also the given name of longtime Grant friend and fellow-Tennessean Minnie Pearl.
 Grant entered the Baptist Hospital of Nashville Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m. and gave birth to Sarah Cannon that evening. Her husband, songwriter/producer Gary Chapman, was with her during the entire labor and delivery, which was described as "easy."
 Said Grant, "We picked out the name Sarah Cannon several months ago and have been calling her by name ever since. Baby Sarah has had a place in our family for months now, so it was awfully sweet to see her face-to-face."
 Grant and Chapman are also the parents of Matthew, 5, and Millie, who will be 3 in December. Millie was the subject of "Baby, Baby," Grant's breakthrough single which was a No. 1 record in 1991. Grant will have another creative release early next week when her brand-new collection of original and traditional Christmas songs, "Home For Christmas," ships nearly 1 million copies to record stores around the country.
