Amy Grant has been released from hospital after a cycling accident.
The 61-year-old singer was briefly hospitalized following the incident in Nashville earlier this week, but is now recovering at home, although she has postponed a number of concerts scheduled for next month as she recovers.
A post on the star’s Instagram account read: “Amy Grant was involved in an accident after hitting a pothole while cycling with a friend (note: she was wearing a helmet).
“After a brief hospital stay where she was treated for her injuries, doctors have given Amy additional time to recover at home, where she is now resting comfortably.”
The postponed performances in Tennessee, Chattanooga and Johnson City have been rescheduled for April and June 2023.
The statement added: “There are no other changes to her tour schedule at this time.”
Amy underwent open-heart surgery two years ago to correct the rare heart condition PAPVR (partially abnormal pulmonary venous return) – which she was born with but only found out about after a medical – and has admitted that women can be guilty of putting their own health at risk. on the “background”.
The ‘Baby Baby’ singer said: ‘I think women tend to put their health on the backburner.
“It’s more like, ‘Oh, my kids, my grandkids, my job, my wife.’ All these things, and we need a gift from each other. So even if you say, ‘Oh, I didn’t have anything on my radar,’ just ask someone else to check it out.”
Meanwhile, Grant was announced as one of five recipients of this year’s Kennedy Center Honors, alongside stars such as Hollywood a-lister George Clooney and Irish rock band U2.
