Amy Grant in stable condition after bicycling accident, hospital stay

Christian singer Amy Grant sought treatment at a Nashville hospital Wednesday after being injured in a bicycling accident

First responders transported the best-selling “Heart In Motion” artist to Vanderbilt Medical Center to treat her for cuts and abrasions after the accident, Grant’s representative Velvet Kelm confirmed to USA TODAY.

Before the wreck, Grant was cycling near a golf course. She wore a bicycling helmet at the time of the accident. 

As a precaution, Grant stayed overnight Wednesday at hospital, Kelm said, adding the singer is in stable condition. 

Amy Grant arrives at the 55th annual CMA Awards on Nov. 10, 2021, at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

‘Take care of yourself’:Amy Grant shares health update after heart surgery

Days ago, Grant joined the class of 2022 Kennedy Center Honorees, a recognition considered one of the highest in American entertainment.

The bicycle accident comes two years after Grant faced a health scare, receiving open-heart surgery to fix a birth defect

Grant revealed in February 2020 she was diagnosed with a heart condition called partial anomalous pulmonary venous return, and underwent surgery in June.

Eight months after her surgery, Grant shared a health update in an interview with “Good Morning America.” 

“I feel fantastic. I just have this feeling like this is going to be the best year yet. I love it,” Grant said. 

The singer unknowingly lived with the heart condition since birth, but was diagnosed after her doctor insisted Grant get a check-up while accompanying husband Vince Gill on a doctor’s visit. 

“My birth defect was an encroaching killer and I had no idea,” Grant said.  “My advice would be to take care of yourself, the world needs you.”
