Vince Gill’s Says Amy Grant is Is ‘Doing Great’ Following Bike Accident
Vince Gill updates Amy Grant’s condition after her bike accident in July.
On the red carpet for CMT Giants: Vince Gill on Monday, the country musician, 65, spoke about his wife’s absence.
He told that she is “pretty torn up” over not making it. “With her accident and all of that, they kind of deemed that the best thing for her to do is just be still.”
“That’s hard for her because she is very active,” he said. “She knows that she is well thought of, well loved and represented tonight, so it’s all good.”
61-year-old Grant was hospitalised after a bike accident on July 27. A spokesman for the singer told that she fell while cycling with a pal and was treated for wounds and abrasions. She wore a helmet when she crashed.
She was freed later that week and postponed her August tour dates “due to the doctor’s orders.”
Grant’s company said in August that her September and October tour dates will be pushed back “due to Amy needing more time to recover from injuries and a concussion sustained in a bicycling accident.”
Grammy winner will perform from February to April 2019. Pre-purchased tickets are valid.
“Every day, Amy gets stronger. As after her heart surgery, we are shocked at how fast she heals “In a post, her manager Jennifer Cooke remarked. “However, although she is doing much better, we have made the difficult decision to postpone her fall tour so she can concentrate on her recovery and rebuild her stamina.”
After Grant’s Christmas tour, she will play alongside Gill at the Ryman.
In a late-August Instagram post, Grant thanked fans for their notes, gifts, and prayers and said she wants to return to music.
“I want to say thank you to everyone who has written me a note, sent flowers or gifts, or said a prayer on my behalf,” wrote the “Baby, Baby” singer-songwriter. A month into recovery, I have found numerous hidden gifts.
Grant said, “On the advice of my doctors and other friends who have been through similar experiences of recovery, I am choosing to give myself the gift of a very simple fall season.”
At the end of the note, she announced her return to music with Smith and Gill later this year.
“I look forward to making music with Michael W. and Vince during the Christmas season,” Grant said. With gratitude and joy, Amy
