UPDATE: As of August 1, 2022, Amy Grant and her husband Vince Gill have canceled their upcoming shows. Thankfully, Grant has been released from the hospital but per her doctor’s orders will need to take it easy for the foreseeable future. She is slated to perform at the Kenndy Center Honors later this year, which is still scheduled to take place.
Christian Singer Amy Grant is recovering after she was hospitalized this past Wednesday after a bike accident in Nashville.
Grant, 61, was taken to Vanderbilt Hospital and treated for cuts and abrasions after she fell while cycling with a friend, a spokesperson for the star confirms to PEOPLE. She was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.

Thankfully, Grant is in stable condition. The singer stayed overnight at the hospital as a precaution, per the spokesperson. She will stay Thursday night as well for observation and treatment.
The incident comes two years after the star, who is married to singer Vince Gill, underwent open-heart surgery to correct a rare condition with which she was born, but only discovered at a check-up.
Grant was diagnosed with PAPVR (partial anomalous pulmonary venous return), and in June of 2020, it was confirmed she underwent successful surgery.
“I think women tend to put their health on the back burner,” the singer told Good Morning America just last year.
“It’s more like, ‘Oh my children, my grandchildren, my work, my spouse.’ All of those things and we need the gift of each other. So even if you go, ‘Oh, I got nothing on the radar,’ just get somebody else to check it out.”
Earlier this month, Grant was chosen as one of five recipients of this year’s Kennedy Center Honors. She is set to be honored on the Kennedy Center Opera House stage in Washington, D.C., on December 4.
And when the annual ceremony’s 45th class of honorees was announced earlier this month, Grant spoke about the recognition in a statement.
“Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine ever receiving this prestigious Kennedy Center Honors,” said the musician. “Through the years, I’ve watched so many of my heroes serenaded by colleagues and fellow artists, always moved by the ability of music and film to bring us together and to see the best in each other.”
Grant continued, “I cannot wait to celebrate with my fellow honorees, friends, and family. Thank you for widening the circle to include all of us.”
