Amy Grant Pens Heartfelt Message To Fans After Bicycle Accident And Gives Health Update

Amy Grant teases new music with Michael W. Smith and her husband Vince Gill.

Amy Grant is a force to be reckoned with. After being hospitalized from a bicycle accident in late July, the “Walk On Water” singer is back in action. 

Over the weekend, Grant turned to social media (Aug. 27) to express her gratitude to supportive fans who have showered her with well wishes. The powerhouse vocalist also warned her listeners that new music is on the horizon.  

“I want to say thank you to everyone who has written me a  note, sent flowers or gifts, or said a prayer on my behalf,” said the songstress. “I’m one month into recovery that has held so many unexpected hidden gifts.” 

Grant continued to explain that she will adhere to her doctor’s orders and stay on the down-low for the next few months. 

“On the advice of my doctors and other friends who have been through similar experiences of recovery, I am choosing to give myself the gift of a very simple fall season,” she declared alongside a self-portrait. 

The unexpected accident can’t keep Grant out of the spotlight, as the award-winning artist confirmed that she has joined forces with Michael W. Smith and her husband Vince Gill to create new music. 

“I look forward to making music with Michael W. and Vince during the Christmas season. With deep appreciation and joy…xo Amy,” she concluded. 

Notable names in music and devoted followers flooded the comment section to show their excitement and to encourage a speedy recovery. 

“We love you, Amy!” said husband-and-wife duo The War And Treaty. “Yes, simple is best! Looking forward to Christmas,” shared a listener. “So glad you are recovering nicely. Can’t wait to hear new music!” added another. 

The contemporary Christian singer fell while cycling in Nashville’s Percy Warner Park in late July. Grant was wearing a helmet but suffered several cuts and bruises at the time. Gill publicized that his wife was “knocked unconscious for 10 or 15 minutes” and was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment. Grant stayed overnight at the hospital for additional observations and for extra percussion. 

The singer-songwriter was forced to cancel and reschedule a string of performances to focus on her recovery and health. Grant’s team postponed all appearances slated for September and October to early 2023. 

The Grammy Award-winner will make a triumphant return to the stage and will resume her Christmas Tour with Smith and her annual Christmas At The Ryman residency with Gill. 

Grant’s manager, Jennifer Cooke gave ticket-holders a transparent update on her overall health following the accident. 

“Amy is getting strong every day. Just as she did after her heart surgery, we are amazed at how fast she heals. However, although she is doing much better,  we have made the difficult decision to postpone her fall tour so she can concentrate on her recovery and rebuild her stamina,” Cooke wrote. “She wants to be able to give 100% when she tours and, unfortunately, we do not think that will be the case by the time rehearsals start for the fall dates,” she added. 

All fall shows are rescheduled throughout February – April 2023, and tickets will be honored at the new dates. The resilient hitmaker will make her first appearance on Saturday, November 26 in Memphis, TN. For additional information and upcoming shows, visit amygrant.com
