Amy Grant: Faith ‘Helped [Her] Not Be Afraid’ While Recovering From Bike Accident

By Movieguide® Contributor 

Amy Grant has leaned on her faith as she continues to recover from injuries sustained during a bike accident. 

Grant fell off her bike in 2022 after riding through a pothole and was unconscious for 15 minutes. She was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident. 

When asked what kept her positive during this challenging time, Grant quickly pointed to her faith. 

“It’s helped me not be afraid,” she explained. “And just to go ‘however this turns out, I believe I’m held by love.’”

Grant also credited her husband, country singer Vince Gill, for keeping her spirits up. 

“He has just been so patient,” Grant shared. “Vince has a kind of way of grounding the space that we’re in even without saying a word.”

She continued, “I think early on I said, ‘What if I’m different, what if I’m not the same?’ and he said, ‘Hey, every day we wake up a little different, and we love each other, and it’s good.’” 

Despite the difficulties she’s faced, Grant has remained positive.

“To me it’s just been a great reminder that life is dynamic, people are dynamic,” she said. “Nobody’s all good, nobody’s all bad. Circumstance is not all bad or all good. Even in the worst, awful worst trauma, beauty and goodness are still present.”

Movieguide® previously reported on how Gill has helped with Grant’s recovery process:

Amy Grant shared her gratitude for her husband Vince Gill as she continues to recover from a serious bike accident last year. 

The singer was effusive in her praise of Gill, saying he “made every day of the journey okay.”

“The biggest thing was in the two months after the wreck, it was really depressing,” she said of that time. “Everything canceled, and I just said, ‘What if I’m never all the way back?’”

“And he said, ‘Things happen to people every day, and you just have to take one day at a time, and we’re here, and I love you.’ And that just kind of made every day of the journey okay. And I do feel fantastic,” Grant said of Gill. 

Grant has largely recovered, but admitted she is still dealing with stamina and memory issues. 

“Well, they said a 12 to 18-month recovery for a head injury and so every once in a while, I’ll be talking to somebody, and they’ll say something that I guess I used to know, and I’ll gasp and go, ‘Are you kidding me?!’” she laughed. 

“But I’m telling you, I’m glad for every day,” Grant concluded.
