Vince Gill gave “Entertainment Tonight” an update regarding his wife, Amy Grant, and her recovery. She was injured in a bicycling accident in July.

Grant’s injuries were severe enough that it required an ambulance ride to the hospital and a stay for observation.

Following her brief hospitalization, the 61-year-old contemporary Christian music icon announced that she was postponing her fall tour dates. Grant’s November tour dates with Michael W. Smith and her Christmas residency with her husband at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, in December are currently still scheduled.

At the red carpet event for Gill’s taping of “CMT Giants: Vince Gill,” Grant’s husband told “Entertainment Tonight,” “She’s doing great. She’s pretty torn up that she couldn’t be here tonight, but with her accident and all of that, they kind of deemed that the best thing for her to do is just be still. That’s hard for her because she is very active.”

“She knows that she is well thought of, well loved and represented tonight, so it’s all good,” Gill said of Grant.

A couple weeks ago, Grant posted a message of gratitude to her fans and followers on Instagram, telling them, “I want to say thank you to everyone who has written me a note, sent flowers or gifts, or said a prayer on my behalf. I’m one month into a recovery that has held so many unexpected hidden gifts. On the advice of my doctors and other friends who have been through similar experiences of recovery, I am choosing to give myself the gift of a very simple fall season. I look forward to making music with Michael W. and Vince during the Christmas season. With deep appreciation and joy…xo Amy.”

Grant is also scheduled to appear at the The Kennedy Center Honors on December 4 where she will honored for her lifetime artistic achievements.
