Amy Grant has issued a statement and postponed several upcoming concerts after being hospitalized from a bicycle accident.

On Friday evening (July 29), the “Baby, Baby” singer took to social media to share an update with fans as she recovers from the accident.

“Earlier this week Amy Grant was in an accident after hitting a pothole while riding her bicycle with a friend (note: she was wearing a helmet),” her statement began. “Following a brief hospitalization where she was treated for her injuries, doctors have ordered additional recovery time at home for Amy, where she is now resting comfortably.”

Amy Grant Postponed Several Upcoming Concerts

Due to “doctor’s orders,” the hitmaker was forced to postpone all concerts that were scheduled to take place in August, including shows in Knoxville, Chattanooga, Johnson City and Wilmington. Those concerts will now take place in April and June of 2023.

All tickets purchased will be honored for the newly rescheduled tour dates. There are no other changes to Grant’s touring schedule at this time. Visit Amy Grant’s website for additional information and for her upcoming tour dates.

Earlier this month, Grant was hospitalized after a bike accident that happened in Nashville. According to WKRN, the contemporary Christian and pop singer/songwriter was riding a bicycle around 3 p.m. on the south side of Nashville near the Harpeth Hills Golf Course. After the accident, Grant was transported by ambulance to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where she remains.
