Amy Grant has postponed several upcoming concert dates after a bicycle accident landed her in hospital.
According to a statement on her social media, the Christian singer is “resting comfortably” at home after doctors ordered “additional recovery time” due to her accident.
“Due to doctor’s orders, she had to reschedule her upcoming August concerts (Knoxville, Chattanooga, Johnson City, Wilmington). Concerts have been rescheduled to April and June 2023. All tickets will be honored for the new performance dates ‘, reads the statement.
Grant was hospitalized Wednesday (July 27) in Nashville after a biking accident when she hit a pothole, according to her social media statement. A representative for Grant told Nexstar Media Wire and The Associated Press that the contemporary Christian superstar was biking near Harpeth Hills golf course in Nashville with a friend around 3 p.m. Wednesday when she fell.
Grant later received treatment for cuts and scrapes in the emergency room at Vanderbilt Medical Center. Grant was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash and no serious injuries were reported.
Grant’s husband, Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill, has canceled performances scheduled for Thursday (July 28) at Ovens Auditorium in Charlotte, North Carolina, as well as Friday (July 29) and Saturday (July 30) at Capitol One Hall in Tysons, Va. A representative for Gill confirmed to Country Now that Gill did not expect to reschedule the canceled dates at press time.
Ticket holders for affected performances may request a refund at the point of purchase of their tickets.
Grant became one of the most important pioneering artists in the contemporary Christian music movement after the release of her self-titled debut album in 1977. She transitioned into mainstream pop with the release of Unguarded in 1985, and his mainstream pop hits include “Find a Way”, “Baby Baby”, “Every Heartbeat” and more.
Gill and Grant married in May 2000. She is among the performers slated to receive Kennedy Center Honors later in 2022.
