Amy Grant Had to Relearn How to Sing Following Bike Accident

By Movieguide® Contributor

Though Amy Grant has returned to the stage since her serious bike accident a year and a half ago, she is still recovering from her injuries, including needing to relearn how to sing.

In July 2022, Grant was riding her bike with a friend near her home in Nashville, Tennessee, when she hit a pothole and was thrown onto the pavement. Though she was wearing a helmet, she suffered a serious brain injury after being knocked out for 10 minutes.

She’s since returned to performing on stage, but she still suffers many side effects from the severe accident.

“My balance is still weird,” Grant told E! News, adding that she also suffers from memory loss. “You know, sometimes I walk around like I’m drunk, and you just have to laugh about all of it. I can’t remember what I can’t remember.”

The most significant injury from the accident, however, was a cyst in her throat that went “into hypergrowth” following the accident.

“[I was] working with a vocalist and she said, ‘What is happening in your throat? Lean your head back,’” Grant told Today. “And I said, ‘I know. It’s like I’ve got an Adam’s apple that keeps getting bigger.’ Unbeknownst to me, I’d had a thyroglossal duct cyst.”

The singer underwent a five-hour surgery to remove the cyst after it had been discovered.

“I actually had to learn to sing again,” she told E! News.

While the road to recovery was difficult, Grant found support from her fans, her faith and her husband, Vince Gill.

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

“And [Vince] said, ‘Things happen to people every day, and you just have to take it 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,” she continued.

Amid her recovery after a scary bike accident, singer Amy Grant attended this year’s Kennedy Center Honors where she spoke about what her return to the stage.

“Last week was my first time back on stage, and I can’t think of a more gentle way to get back into the limelight than doing a Christmas concert with my dear friend Michael W. Smith,” Grant shared.

She continued, “I was nervous that first day. I forgot lyrics to songs that I wrote. I’m just on a healing journey, but this time here. You know, love and kindness is also very healing, and I’m not kidding — I feel filled up from head to toe.”

Grant credits her husband Vince Gill for helping her recover.
