Amy Grant, 61, hospitalized: Country singer was in terrible bike accident in Nashville
Christian and country singer Amy Grant is recovering in a hospital in Nashville after being in a horrible bicycle accident on Wednesday, July 27. The singer, who topped the charts in the early 90s with “Baby Baby” and ” Good For Me”, is said to have been wearing a helmet when she was involved in an accident while cycling with a friend in the Harpeth Hills area of Tennessee town. Amy was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where she was treated for “cuts and abrasions,” according to News channel 5.
The Grammy Award winner is said to be in a stable condition after staying in the hospital overnight, according to a source People. She will also stay another night for monitoring and further treatment, according to the insider.
The unfortunate accident came just two years after Amy underwent open-heart surgery when she was diagnosed with PAPVR (partially abnormal pulmonary venous return) during a routine check-up. After the successful procedure in June 2020, Amy spoke about the importance of staying healthy. “I think women tend to put their health on top of their backs,” she explains to Good Morning America last year. “It was like, ‘Oh my kids, my grandchildren, my job, my spouse.’ All that and we need each other’s gift. So even if you say, “Oh, I don’t have anything on the radar,” just have someone else check it out. “
Better news, Amy is part of the class 2022 Kennedy Center Honorees, a recognition considered one of the highest in American entertainment. She joined famous companies like George Clooney and Knight Gladys. “In my wildest dreams, I never imagined myself receiving this prestigious Kennedy Center Honors,” she said in a statement. “Over the years, I have watched so many of my heroes be admired by colleagues and fellow artists, always moved by the ability of music and cinema to bring us together and see the the best in each other.”
Amy added, “I can’t wait to celebrate with my honorees, friends and family. Thank you for expanding your circle to include all of us. “
