Singer Amy Grant hospitalized in stable condition after bike accident in Nashville

A Wednesday bike accident in Nashville has landed singer Amy Grant in the hospital.

Grant, 61, fell off her bike while riding with a friend and was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where she was treated for abrasions and cuts.

According to a spokesperson for the “Baby Baby” singer, Grant was wearing a helmet at the time of the collision, Fox News Digital reports.

He is said to be in stable condition and spent Wednesday night in the hospital as a precaution, according to a spokeswoman for Grant. For additional observation, she will spend the night again on Thursday.

Grant’s bicycle tragedy occurs two years after she underwent open-heart surgery to treat a heart problem she was born with but only recently became aware of.

A partial anomalous pulmonary venous return, or PAPVR, which wrongly pumps blood through the heart chambers, was identified in the Christian singer. In June 2020, she will have surgery, she said.

On “Good Morning America” in February of last year, Grant stated, “I think women tend to put their health on the back burner.”

Grant was selected as one of the five recipients to receive the Kennedy Center Honors this year earlier this month. On Dec. 4 in Washington, D.C., she will receive recognition on stage at the Kennedy Center Opera House.

Following her recognition, Grant gave the Kennedy Center a statement. “Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine ever receiving this prestigious Kennedy Center Honors,” she said.

She went on to say, “through the years, I’ve watched so many of my heroes serenaded by colleagues and fellow artists, always moved by the ability of music and film to bring us together and to see the best in each other.”

“I cannot wait to celebrate with my fellow honorees, friends, and family. Thank you for widening the circle to include all of us,” she concluded.

Grant, a six-time Grammy winner with well-known crossover pop hits like “Baby, Baby,” “Every Heartbeat,” and “That’s What Love Is For,” has been married to her husband Vince Gill, 65, for more than 20 years. She has sold over 30 million albums, notably the five-time platinum “Heart in Motion” album from 1991, which made her known to a wider pop audience.
