Amy Grant Says Vince Gill ‘Made Every Day Of The Journey Okay’ As She Recovered From Bike Accident

By Movieguide® Contributor

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. 

Movieguide® previously reported on Grant’s accident:

Christian singer Amy Grant will take a break from her August concert schedule to recover from a bike accident last Wednesday.

“Amy Grant was in an accident after hitting a pothole while riding her bicycle with a friend (note: she was wearing a helmet). Following a brief hospitalization where she was treated for her injuries, doctors have ordered additional recovery time at home for Amy, where she is now resting comfortably,” her team posted on the singer’s Instagram page.

This comes two years after the singer underwent open heart surgery for PAPVR, a rare condition Grant was born with but only discovered later in life, as Movieguide® previously reported.

While Grant is stable, she has rescheduled her August concerts in Knoxville, Chattanooga, Johnson City, and Wilmington to April and June 2023 due to “doctor’s orders.”

“All tickets will be honored at the new performance dates. There are no other changes to her touring schedule at this time,” the Instagram post added.

PEOPLE reports that Grant was taken to Vanderbilt Hospital, where she was treated for cuts and abrasions. She stayed at the hospital for a few days after the accident for observation and treatment and has since returned home.
