How Faith Inspired Amy Grant’s First Single Since Bike Accident

By Movieguide® Contributor

Amy Grant is creating new music again after struggling with health complications over the last few years.

Grant recently released a statement about her upcoming single, “Trees We’ll Never See.”

“So much creativity has been put on hold in my life, for all kinds of reasons,” she explained.  “This might be one of the best songs I have heard in a long time. I was so glad they [the songwriters] waited for me to heal up and get back to the studio.”

The singer had to put her career on hold in 2020 when she underwent heart surgery. While she performed in 2021 on GOOD MORNING AMERICA, a bike accident in 2022 paused her career again.

Although she was wearing a helmet, Grant was unconscious for over 10 minutes and had to be hospitalized for two days. 

As Movieguide® previously reported, Grant’s faith “helped [her] not be afraid. And just to go however this turns out, I believe I’m held by love.”

“I’ll sing to the day I die,” the singer said while recovering from the accident. “Music… that changes everything. Music takes any manual task and suddenly you’ve got a soundtrack and you’re in the movie of your own life and the sun is shining and music changes everything.”

Movieguide® previously reported on Grant’s recovery and the part faith has played:

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.”
