Vince Gill cancels shows after wife Amy Grant’s hospitalization

Amy Grant’s husband, Vince Gill, canceled future concerts this weekend due to a bicycle accident that sent the singer to the hospital. Grant, who will receive Kennedy Center Honors later this year, crashed while bicycling in Nashville on Wednesday. She was taken by ambulance to a neighboring hospital, where she received care for her injuries. No serious injuries were reported and her health was listed as stable.

What happened to Amy Grant?

One of the most significant musicians of contemporary Christian music is the singer. His self-titled album was a significant release in 1977, and by 1985 his impact had expanded to include pop music. Find a Way, Baby Baby and Every Heartbeat are some of his best songs. Grant was taken to the hospital Wednesday in Nashville after collapsing while riding a bike (July 27). EMS took her to Vanderbilt Medical Center, where the cuts and abrasions were treated. Grant was wearing a helmet and was not seriously injured, but was admitted for observation as a precaution. His condition was described as stable.

What did Vince Gill post?

A message on social media reads: “Thank you to everyone who offered prayers and good thoughts for Amy after her bike accident yesterday. She is receiving treatment at the hospital and is in stable condition. At the end of this week, she is expected to return home. Where she will continue to recover. Her thoughtful prayers and kind words from her. They feel and accept. We’d like to advise everyone to wear helmets, like Amy did!

This December in Washington, DC, the Kennedy Center Honors will be presented to five celebrities, including Grant. The Honors Gala has been a staple of Washington’s social and cultural scene for 44 years, and its national broadcast on CBS is the highlight of the fall television season. Among the other artists recognized in 2022 are U2 and Gladys Knight.
