The News Of Cancellations Came After His Wife’s Accident
On Wednesday (July 27), Vince Gill’s wife Amy Grant – one of the most significant pioneers of the Contemporary Christian music genre – suffered injuries in a bicycle accident. The mishap took place near Harpeth Hill Golf Course in Nashville, where she hit a pothole while riding her bicycle with a friend.
The singer was immediately taken to Vanderbilt Medical Center’s emergency room, where she was treated for the cuts and abrasions she sustained. Grant was wearing a helmet during the accident. No major injuries were reported and she was in a stable condition. Still, doctors have asked Grant to stay overnight in the hospital as a precaution. She also remained for another night for further observation and treatment.
According to a recent post on Grant’s official Instagram account, her doctors have required further recovery time at home, where she is “now resting comfortably.” However, due to the doctor’s orders, Grant also has to put off her upcoming August concerts – which were rescheduled for April and June 2023.
Well, we’re wishing Amy Grant a speedy recovery.
