Representatives for Amy Grant posted an update on the singer’s condition after she had a bike accident and was hospitalized in Nashville on Wednesday.
In a message posted to Instagram on Thursday, the 61-year-old singer’s team told fans that she was “in stable condition” and was expected to be discharged from the hospital later this week.
“Thank you to all those offering prayers and well wishes for Amy after her bike crash yesterday,” the message from Team Amy read. “She is in the hospital receiving treatment but in stable condition.”
“She is expected to go home later this week where she will continue to heal,” the statement added. “Your kind thoughts and heartfelt prayers are felt and received.”
“Amy was wearing her helmet and we would remind you to all do the same,” the message concluded.
On Friday afternoon, Grant was discharged from the hospital and is reportedly resting comfortably at home. However, the singer postponed her upcoming August tour dates.
Grant was advised by her doctor to postpone her August concert dates in Knoxville, Chattanooga and Johnson City, Tennessee, and Wilmington, North Carolina. A representative confirmed the concerts will be rescheduled for April and June 2023.
“All tickets will be honored at the new performance dates,” the representative told Fox News Digital. “There are no other changes to her touring schedule at this time.”
Grant was out riding her bike with a friend Wednesday when she fell and had to be treated for abrasions and cuts.
The injury comes two years after the Christian singer-turned-pop star was diagnosed with partial anomalous pulmonary venous return, or a PAPVR. She would undergo open-heart surgery to deal with the condition she’s had since birth.
The singer confirmed the surgery in June 2020 and opened up about it in February 2021, during an appearance on Good Morning America, “My birth defect was an encroaching killer — and I had no idea.”
“So my advice would be take care of yourself,” she added. “The world needs you. Even if you feel like everything is fine, you don’t really know what’s going on the inside. I think women tend to put their health on the back burner.”
“It’s more like, ‘Oh, my children, my grandchildren, my work, my spouse.’ All of those things and we need the gift of each other,” Grant continued. “So even if you go, ‘Oh, I got nothing on the radar,’ just get somebody else to check it out.”
