The singer also shared that she will be releasing another new song this spring with details for that single coming soon.

“So much creativity has been put on hold in my life, for all kinds of reasons,” explained Grant when speaking about her new music. “Last summer I was asked to sing on a new Cory Asbury song yet to be released. This might be one of the best songs I have heard in a long time. I was so glad they waited for me to heal up and get back to the studio.”

She continued, “Inspired by Cory’s beautiful song, Marshall Altman and I started talking about songs that we’ve written recently that affected us. I played him one of mine. He played me one of his. His song was ‘Trees We’ll never See.’ I loved it immediately and asked him if I could record it, and within two weeks, both songs were mixed and mastered!”

This exciting announcement follows a trying year for the “That’s What Love Is For” singer as she recovered from a devastating bike accident last summer. Grant was transported to the emergency room after the accident, which occurred in Nashville near the Harpeth Hills Golf Course on July 27. The hitmaker was reportedly wearing a helmet, however, she sustained cuts, lacerations and bruises in the accident.

Her husband, Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill, later revealed that Grant was “knocked unconscious for 10 or 15 minutes” as a result of the incident.

Despite the uphill battle that Grant has faced due to her various health issues, her attitude seems unwavering as she reflects in the interview that took place in the comfort of her own home, sharing, “To me, it’s just been a great reminder that life is dynamic. People are dynamic. Nobody is all good, and nobody is all bad. A circumstance is not all bad or all good. Even in the worst, awful trauma, beauty and goodness are still present.”

Grant returned to the stage post-accident healthy and ready to perform for fans just in time for the holidays in 2022, as she joined Michael W. Smith on their Christmas tour. The tour was followed by Grant’s annual Christmas at the Ryman residency alongside Gill.

She wrapped up the year by receiving a Kennedy Center Honor, next to U2, George Clooney, Gladys Knight and Tania Leon.
