Amy Grant postpones August shows to recover from bike accident

Amy Grant is home recovering from a bike accident that occurred on Wednesday while the 61-year-old singer was riding with a friend, but will be postponing her upcoming concerts because of her injuries.

Grant’s doctors recommended that she postpone scheduled shows in August in Knoxville, Chattanooga and Johnson City, Tennessee, and Wilmington, North Carolina, which she has done.

The rescheduled shows will be held in April and June 2023.

“All tickets will be honored at the new performance dates,” the representative told Fox News Digital. “There are no other changes to her touring schedule at this time.”

Time needed

The specific nature of the six-time Grammy-winning artist’s injuries was not known; it was only reported that she was treated for “abrasions and cuts” after the accident.

She was wearing a helmet and hit a pothole during the ride and was kept in the hospital until Friday for observation.

Grant had previously disclosed that she had open heart surgery in 2020 to correct a heart condition she had had since birth but only found out about just before the surgery.

“I think women tend to put their health on the back burner,” Grant said on Good Morning America last February about her heart condition.

The singer’s life

Grant has been married to country singer Vince Gill for over 20 years.

Her singing career started in the Christian Contemporary market, but her 1991 album Heart in Motion helped her cross over into pop music and get her music to a larger audience.

Some of her hits include “Baby Baby,” “Every Heartbeat” and “That’s What Love Is For.”

Grant has five children including three from a previous marriage to Gary Chapman, one with current husband Gill, and a stepdaughter from Gill’s previous marriage.
