Amy Grant writes heartfelt message to fans after bike accident and provides health update | New

Amy Grant is a force to be reckoned with. After being hospitalized following a bicycle accident at the end of July, the interpreter of “Walk On Water” is back.

Over the weekend, Grant took to social media (August 27) to express her gratitude to the supportive fans who showered her with well wishes. The powerhouse singer also warned her listeners that new music was on the horizon.

“I want to say thank you to everyone who wrote me a note, sent flowers or gifts, or said a prayer on my behalf,” the singer said. “I’m in a month of recovery that has contained so many unexpected hidden gifts.”

Grant went on to explain that she would follow her doctor’s orders and keep a low profile for the next few months.

“On the advice of my doctors and other friends who have gone through similar recovery experiences, I choose to treat myself to a very simple fall season,” she said alongside a self-portrait.

The unexpected mishap can’t keep Grant out of the spotlight, as the award-winning artist has confirmed she’s teamed up with Michael W. Smith and her husband Vince Gill to create new music.

“I look forward to making music with Michael W. and Vince this Christmas season. With deep gratitude and joy… xo Amy,” she concluded.

Notable names in music and dedicated followers flooded the comments section to show their enthusiasm and encourage a speedy recovery.

“We love you, Amy!” said husband and wife duo The War And Treaty. “Yes, simplicity is best!” Can’t wait for Christmas,” one listener shared. “I’m so glad you’re recovering well. I can’t wait to hear some new music!” added another.

The contemporary Christian singer fell while biking in Nashville’s Percy Warner Park in late July. Grant wore a helmet but suffered several cuts and bruises at the time. Gill went public that his wife was “knocked out for 10 or 15 minutes” and was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for treatment. Grant spent the night in the hospital for further observations and additional percussion.

The singer-songwriter was forced to cancel and reschedule a series of performances to focus on his recovery and health. Grant’s team has postponed all appearances scheduled for September and October to early 2023.

The Grammy Award winner will make a triumphant return to the stage and resume her Christmas tour with Smith and her annual Christmas At The Ryman residency with Gill.

Grant’s manager, Jennifer Cooke, gave ticket holders a transparent update on her overall health following the crash.

“Amy is getting strong every day. Just like she did after her heart surgery, we are amazed at how quickly she is healing. However, even though she is doing much better, we have made the difficult decision to postpone her fall tour so she can focus on her recovery and rebuilding her stamina,” Cooke wrote. “She wants to be able to give 100% on her tours and unfortunately we don’t think that will be the case when rehearsals begin for the fall dates,” she added.

All fall shows are postponed from February to April 2023, and tickets will be honored on the new dates. The resilient hitmaker will make her first appearance on Saturday, November 26 in Memphis, TN. For more information and upcoming shows, visit amygrant.com.
