Amy Grant released from hospital after her bicycle accident.
The 61-year-old singer was briefly hospitalized after the incident in Nashville earlier this week but is now recovering at home, although she has postponed a number of shows scheduled for next month as she recovers.
A post on the star’s Instagram account reads: “Amy Grant had an accident after hitting a pothole while riding a bike with a friend (note: she was wearing a helmet).
“After a brief hospitalization where she received treatment for her injuries, doctors ordered additional recovery time at home for Amy, where she is now resting comfortably.”
Delayed performances in Tennessee, Chattanooga and Johnson City have been rescheduled to April and June 2023.
The statement added, “There are no other changes to his touring schedule at this time.”
Amy underwent open-heart surgery two years ago to correct the rare heart condition PAPVR (abnormal partial pulmonary venous return) – which she was born with but only discovered she had after a medical examination – and confessed that women can be guilty of putting their own health on the “back burner”.
The ‘Baby Baby’ singer said, “I think women tend to put their health on the back burner.
“It’s more like, ‘Oh my kids, my grandkids, my job, my wife.’ All of those things and we need each other’s gift. So even if you’re like, ‘Oh, I don’t have anything on the radar’, have someone else check it out.”
Meanwhile, Grant was announced as one of five recipients of this year’s Kennedy Center Honors, alongside stars such as Hollywood star George Clooney and Irish rock band U2.
