During the first of Gill’s four-night residency at The Ryman in Downtown Nashville on Wednesday (Aug. 4), the Country Music Hall of Famer told the capacity crowd that Grant is “doing fine” and shared a few new details about Grant’s accident in Music City.
“My bride Amy is doing fine,” Gill said (per CMT). He then shared, “[My wife Amy] had a bicycle wreck last Wednesday over in Percy Warner Park, and thank God she was wearing a helmet.”
Gill revealed that Grant was “knocked unconscious for 10 or 15 minutes.”
In late July 2022, Grant was hospitalized from injuries sustained after she was involved in 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.
Grant’s team later shared a update on Grant’s condition on Thursday, July 28.
“Thank you to all those offering prayers and well wishes for Amy after her bike crash yesterday,” the update on Instagram began. “She is in the hospital receiving treatment but in stable condition. She is expected to go home later this week, where she will continue to heal. Your kind thoughts and heartfelt prayers are felt and received.”
Grant was wearing a helmet at the time of the incident according to her team and news reports, however, she sustained cuts, lacerations, and bruises in the accident.
“Amy was wearing her helmet and we would remind you to all do the same,” the update concluded, encouraging fans to wear a helmet when riding a bicycle.
On Friday, 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 said. “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.”
Grant is now recovering from the accident at her Tennessee home.
As a result of the incident and on strict “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.
