Mississippi's Ginny Owens is an adept, Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter known for her earnest, faith-based approach to pop. Along with her performance career, Owens holds the position of adjunct professor of songwriting at Belmont University and works as a worship leader at the People's Church in Franklin, Tennessee. In 2005, she also founded the nonprofit charity organization the Fingerprint Initiative.
Born in Jackson, Mississippi in 1975, Owens suffered a degenerative eye condition from birth that left her completely blind by the age of three. Interested in music from a young age, she gravitated toward piano and eventually graduated from Belmont University with a degree in music education. Discovering that many schools were apprehensive about hiring a sight-impaired music teacher, Owens also began pursuing a performance career. She initially sold songs to a publishing company, and later recorded a demo that ultimately led to her signing to CCM vocalist Michael W. Smith's Rocketown Records.
In 2016, Owens delivered her ninth studio album, the pop, folk, and electronica-tinged Love Be the Loudest. The album featured production from a handful of collaborators including Rusty Varenkamp (TobyMac, Meredith Andrews, Jason Gray), Josh Bronleewe (We Are Messengers, Natalie Grant, David Dunn), and Chad Copelin (Ben Rector, Chase Pagan, All Sons & Daughters). Also showcased on the album were guest spots from Ellie Holcomb, Meredith Andrews, All Sons & Daughters, and others. After contributing the song "Fly Away" to the 2017 film Trafficked, Owens returned in 2018 with the singles "Remind Me" and "Stand with Me."
