Two days after being hospitalized after a bike accident, “Baby Baby” singer Amy Grant, 61, has been discharged and several concerts have since been postponed.
“Earlier this week Amy Grant was in an accident after hitting a pothole while cycling with a friend (note: she was wearing a helmet),” her representative said in a statement to Yahoo Entertainment. “After a brief hospitalization where she was treated for her injuries, doctors have ordered additional recovery time for Amy at home, where she is now resting comfortably.”
The Grammy winner met with an accident Wednesday in Nashville, where she lives with her husband of 22 years, Vince Gill. She began her recovery at the city’s Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Friday’s statement continued, “Due to doctor’s orders she had to postpone her upcoming August concerts (Knoxville, Chattanooga, Johnson City, Wilmington).” “Concerts have been rescheduled for April and June 2023. All tickets will be awarded on new performance dates. There are no other changes to their tour schedule at this time. For the latest concerts and details, visit www.AmyGrant. Go to com.
In 2020, Grant underwent open heart surgery to correct a genetic heart condition that was discovered by doctors.
According to BoardThe accident prompted Gill to cancel three shows of her own, which were scheduled for Thursday night in Charlotte, NC, and Friday and Saturday in Tyson, Va.
His team has thanked their fans for their prayers and well wishes.
“Your kind thoughts and heartfelt prayers are felt and received,” read a post on his Instagram page. “Amy was wearing her helmet and we’ll remind you all to do the same!”
Grant will be honored December 4 at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., in a ceremony that will later be broadcast on CBS as one of five performers – the others being U2, Gladys Knight, Tania Lyon and George Clooney – who will be applauded for their lifetime achievements.
