Amy Grant is “resting comfortably” at home after being discharged from Vanderbilt Medical Center on July 29, following a bicycling accident on July 27. However, Amy will have to postpone four upcoming tour dates as she recovers.

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. According to an email sent to Outsider on July 29 from Velvet Kelm, Amy’s representative at The Media Collective, Amy is now “resting comfortably” at home.

“Earlier this week Amy Grant was in an accident after hitting a pothole while out riding her bicycle with a friend (note: she was wearing a helmet),” wrote Kelm. “Following a brief hospitalization where she was treated for her injuries, doctors have ordered additional recovery time at home for Amy, where she is now resting comfortably.”

Amy will reschedule upcoming tour dates in Knoxville, Tenn. (Aug. 18), Chattanooga, Tenn. (Aug 19), Johnson City, Tenn. (Aug. 20), and Wilmington, N.C. (Aug. 21).

“Due to the doctor’s orders she has had to postpone her upcoming August concerts (Knoxville, Chattanooga, Johnson City, Wilmington),” continued Kelm. “The concerts have been rescheduled for April and June, 2023.” Representation assures all existing tickets are still good. There are no other changes to her touring schedule at this time. Go to AmyGrant.com for the latest concert schedule and details.”
