Amy Grant, 61-year-old icon of contemporary Christian music and recently announced Kennedy Center Honoree, is recovering well at home after a bicycle accident that resulted in a brief hospitalization, according to a tweet posted by her team.
“Thank you to all those offering prayers and well wishes for Amy after her bike crash yesterday,” a tweet said on Thursday. “She is in the hospital receiving treatment but in stable condition. She is expected to go home later this week where she will continue to heal. Your kind thoughts and heartfelt prayers are felt and received. Amy was wearing her helmet and we would remind you to all do the same!”
On Friday, Grant’s team disclosed more details regarding her accident, sharing that while biking with a friend, Grant hit a pothole. Grant’s injuries were severe enough that doctors admitted her for observation.
Grant, who was wearing a helmet, is currently recovering at home.
“Following a brief hospitalization to treat her injuries, doctors have ordered additional recovery time at home, where she is now resting comfortably,” Grant’s team said.
While it was previously announced that the Christian music star’s upcoming concert dates wouldn’t be affected by her accident, Grant’s team said, “Due to the doctor’s orders she has had to postpone her upcoming August concerts (Knoxville, Chattanooga, Johnson City, Wilmington). The concerts have been rescheduled for April and June, 2023. All tickets will be honored at the new performance dates.”
Grant is scheduled to join Michael W. Smith in November for some Christmas tour dates and will join her husband, Vince Gill, later in December for a handful of Christmas shows in Nashville, Tennessee.
The “El Shaddai,” and “Baby, Baby” singer will join fellow honorees U2, Gladys Knight, George Clooney, and Tania León on December 4 at The Kennedy Center Honors—an event that will honor Grant for her lifetime artistic achievements.
