After a Bike Accident in Nashville, Singer Amy Grant Was Taken to the Hospital!
Amy Grant was hurt in a bike accident in Nashville on Wednesday. She was taken to the hospital.
A rep for Yahoo Entertainment said that the Christian singer, who was wearing a helmet, was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where she was treated for cuts and scrapes. She was said to be in stable condition, but she was kept overnight just in case. She “will stay another night to be watched and treated,” the representative said.
Grant, 61, resides in the country music capital with her husband of 22 years, Vince Gill.
She had surgery in June 2020 to fix a rare birth defect called partial anomalous pulmonary venous return. According to the Mayo Clinic, this is when “some but not all of the pulmonary veins are attached to the wrong place in the heart.”
The singer of “House of Love” is set to go on tour again next month, starting with a series of shows in Tennessee. After that, she will visit other states and then come back home for a series of Christmas shows with Gill in December. In the same month, she will get a Kennedy Center Honor from the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The prestigious award, which is only given to a few people each year, is for artistic achievements over a person’s whole life. Along with Grant, actor George Clooney, singer Gladys Knight, composer Tania León, and rock band U2 (Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen Jr.) will be honored at this year’s ceremony, which will be shown later on CBS.
David M. Rubenstein, the head of the Kennedy Center, said that Grant was “the first artist to put contemporary Christian music at the centre of American culture.” He said that the six-time Grammy winner “equally thrived after crossing over into mainstream pop with hit after hit, and today is revered as the ‘Queen of Christian Pop.'”
