Christian singer and wife of country music star Vince Gill, Amy Grant, is recovering after she was taken to Vanderbilt Medical Center following a bike accident in Nashville.
The “I Will Remember You” singer was cycling with a friend near Harpeth Hills Golf Course on Wednesday (July 27) afternoon when she fell off her bike. Thankfully, she was wearing a bicycling helmet during the accident and only suffered cuts, lacerations, and bruises.
While she’s in stable condition, Grant stayed overnight at the hospital as a precaution.

The incident comes just a few days after it was announced that Grant – whose music career spans more than four decades – is among the recipients of the 45th Kennedy Center Honors. She will be recognized for her lifetime contributions alongside the members of rock band U2, actor and filmmaker George Clooney, R&B singer Gladys Knight, and composer Tania León. The annual ceremony is scheduled for December 4 and will be broadcast later on CBS.
“Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine ever receiving this prestigious Kennedy Center Honors,” Grant said, adding that she can’t wait to celebrate with her fellow honorees.
A Much Bigger Health Scare
In 2020, Amy Grant underwent open-heart surgery to correct a lifelong heart condition. It turns out she was born with a rare condition called PAPVR or Partial Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return but was only discovered during a heart checkup. PAPVR is a birth defect that affects the veins that take the blood back to the lungs. With this disorder, the patient’s veins will not correctly meet the left atrium.
