When Amy Grant was involved in a bike accident in the summer of 2022, everyone was pretty startled. The singer made a rapid recovery, but she has since admitted that the incident had some long-lasting effects.
Now that she has experienced the accident, she is discussing things that have changed.
Amy Grant started her career in 20th-century contemporary Christian music. One of the first Christian musicians to transition to pop music was her.
The singer, 62, was conceived in Augusta, Georgia. She learned to play the guitar on her own and is the youngest of four sisters.
When her debut self-titled album was published in 1978, it greatly aided in her rise to fame.
She left school to focus on her music career and in 1982 published the well-known album “Age to Age,” which assisted her in reaching new heights in her profession.
She released “Heart in Motion” in 1991 as a genre experiment, shocking some of her more seasoned followers. But she always made sure to include holiday-themed songs and Christmas music.
The singer hit a pothole while riding her bike in July 2022. Before being sent to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, she was knocked from her bike and remained unconscious for 15 minutes. The singer was wearing a helmet at the time, according to a spokesperson for the artist.
Now the singer is revealing that she has been suffering ever since, especially with her memory.
She said, “Honestly, I can’t remember what I don’t remember,” Grant added. “So, I was at dinner the other night with a high school friend. We used to spend the night at each other’s houses. I said, ‘I’m embarrassed to ask you, are you and your husband still together?’ She said that Douglas died seven years ago, and it was like I had just heard it for the first time!”
While attending the 45th Kennedy Center Honors, Grant discussed her recovery process. “Last week was my first time back on stage, and I can’t think of a more gentle way to get back into the limelight than doing a Christmas concert with my dear friend Michael W. Smith,” Grant stated.
“I was nervous that first day. I forgot the lyrics to the songs that I wrote. I’m just on a healing journey, but this time here. You know, love and kindness are also very healing, and I’m not kidding – I feel filled up from head to toe,” she said.
She thanked her husband for his support, saying, “He has just been so patient.” She added, “Vince has a kind of way of grounding the space that we’re in even without saying a word.”
“I think early on I said, ‘What if I’m different, what if I’m not the same?’ and he said, ‘Hey, every day we wake up a little different, and we love each other, and it’s good.’”
She added, “I feel like my old rascally self.”
We are sending Amy Grant our best wishes and hope she recovers completely soon. Please join us in praying for the singer and her healing!
