Amy had Fallen Off while Cycling in Nashville
Earlier this week, it was reported that Amy Grant had fallen off while cycling with a friend in Nashville. She was taken to Vanderbilt Hospital on Wednesday and treated for her injuries. She was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.
Grant was in stable condition and was kept at the hospital for two days for observation and treatment. Following the accident, Amy’s husband, singer Vince Gill, cancelled three of his scheduled weekend concerts. The cancelled shows included his Thursday night gig at the Ovens Auditorium in Charlotte, North Carolina and Friday and Saturday night’s shows at the Capitol One Hall in Tysons, Virginia.
The Singer had Earlier Undergone Open-Heart Surgery
Amy underwent an open-heart surgery two years ago to correct a rare condition called PAPVR (partial anomalous pulmonary venous return). She was born with the condition but got to know about it only at a check-up.
At the time, the singer talked about how important it was for women to take care of their health. She was quoted saying, “I think women tend to put their health on the back burner. 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.”
We wish Amy a speedy recovery and hope to see her back on stage soon. Stay tuned for more news and updates.
