WASHINGTON — Singer Amy Grant postponed a series of concerts in August after a bicycle accident on Wednesday.
The singer was riding her bike with a friend when she hit a pothole, her rep confirmed in an email. The “Heart In Motion” artist was rushed to Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville for treatment of her cuts and scrapes.
Grant’s rep said the singer was wearing a helmet at the time of her accident. After a brief hospitalization, the singer is back home, recovering from her injuries.
On Friday, Grant’s representative confirmed the singer shows in Knoxville, Chattanooga, Johnson City and Wilmington have all been rescheduled for April and June 2023.
The biking accident comes just days after the singer received one of the highest accolades in American entertainment. Last week the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts announced that Grant will join its class of 2022 winners.
“Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined receiving this prestigious Kennedy Center Honors. Over the years, I have seen so many of my heroes serenaded by colleagues and fellow artists, always moved by the music and film to bring us together and see the best in each other,” Grant said in the press release.
She joins George Clooney, Gladys Knight, Tania León and Irish rock band U2.
Grant has sold over 30 million albums and is a six-time Grammy Award winner. She is a pioneer in the Christian music scene, shaping the genre in the early 90s. In November 2021, Grant was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
