Citing more time to recover after a bicycling accident on July 27, Amy Grant has postponed more than 20 fall tour dates in September and October. The 24 tour dates will be rescheduled throughout February, March, and April 2023. Tickets will be honored at the new dates.

“Amy is getting stronger every day,” said Amy’s manager, Jennifer Cooke, in a statement. “Just as she did after her heart surgery, we are amazed at how fast she heals. 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. She wants to be able to give 100 percent when she tours. And, unfortunately, we do not think that will be the case by the time rehearsals would start for the fall dates. She will resume touring with her Christmas tour with Michael W. Smith and her annual Christmas At The Ryman residency with her husband Vince Gill. Amy would like to extend her gratitude for all the many good wishes and prayers offered since the accident. She feels the impact of the collective good will extended her way. Thank you.”

Amy was hospitalized on July 27 after a cycling accident near Harpeth Hills Golf Course (about 12 miles southwest of downtown Nashville). Vanderbilt Medical Center admitted Amy on July 27, and she stayed two nights.

Previously, Amy rescheduled four of her August tour dates.
