On Friday (September 16), Vince Gill was honored with a star-studded special called CMT Giants: Vince Gill in celebration of his sprawling legacy. Several country stars graced the event, including Ricky Skaggs, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Reba McEntire, and Keith Urban, among others.
However, one very important person was noticeably missing that evening: his wife, Christian singer-songwriter Amy Grant, who is continuing to recover from a bicycling accident that left her hospitalized last month.
Gill assured fans that despite her absence, Grant is “doing great.”
While on the red carpet, the “Go Rest High on That Mountain” singer told entertainment news magazine Entertainment Tonight said that Grant is pretty much heavyhearted for not being present on a very special night. But with her accident and all of that, they kind of deemed that the best thing for her to do is just be still,” Gill said, adding that it was quite tough for Grant as she’s an extremely active person.
“She knows that she is well thought of, well-loved, and represented tonight, so it’s all good,” Gill concluded.
Amy Grant Said Her Road To Recover Brought Several Unexpected Hidden Gifts
Amy Grant was taken to Vanderbilt Hospital after she fell while cycling near a golf course in Nashville. While she was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, she needed treatment for cuts and abrasions. It was also later revealed that she had passed out for ten minutes.
The mishap forced Grant to reschedule her fall tour to early next year – and instead, focus on recovery and rebuilding her stamina. But this unfortunate event is not enough to slow her down from doing the thing she loves the most.
Grant actually revealed that she’s hoping she could make brand-new music with award-winning musician Michael W. Smith and her husband, Vince Gill.
Anyway, we wish Grant to be feeling strong again soon!
