    Susan Rae Hill was born in Irving, TX, on July 17, 1967. The adult
    contemporary vocalist's first single -- recorded using her mother's
    maiden name of Ashton to avoid confusion with Kim Hill -- gained
    an audience with CCM radio listeners around America in 1991, and
    made her album Wakened by the Wind the biggest-selling debut in
    the history of the Sparrow label. Ashton reached number one in the
    Christian charts two more times that year, received a Dove award
    for New Artist of the Year and won a CCM readers and reporters poll
    for Best New Artist. Her second album, Angels of Mercy (1992),
    proved her staying potential: it spawned four CCM number one
    singles and was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Pop Gospel
    Album category. Ashton won the 1993 CCM readers award for
    Favorite Inspirational Album and a reporters poll for Best Female
    Artist. She narrowly missed capturing Dove awards for Female
    Vocalist of the Year, Inspirational Recorded Song of the Year and
    Contemporary Album of the Year. Also in 1993, Susan Ashton
    married John David Cunningham and released her self-titled third
    album, with two singles charting number one. She was nominated
    for a 1994 Dove award in the category Female Vocalist of the Year.
    Ashton also branched out that year, recording Down the Road with
    Margaret Becker and Christine Dente. That album was voted the
    Favorite Inspirational Album and Favorite Vocal Event in the 1995
    readers' polls, and was nominated for Dove awards in the Group
    of the Year and Recorded Music Packaging of the Year categories.
    Ashton herself was nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year.
    Susan Ashton's collection of hits, So Far...The Best of Susan Ashton
    Volume 1, appeared in 1995. The following year, Ashton signed
    with Chordant and released Distant Call. Closer, her debut for
    Capitol, followed in mid-1999. ~ John Bush, All Music Guide
