Amy Grant Had to ‘Learn To Sing’ Again after Bike Accident

Recently, Amy Grant opened up about her scary bike accident – and said she had to relearn how to sing as a result of it.  And she credits her husband, country music icon Vince Gill, for helping her through it.

Amy said, “My balance is still weird.  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.”  She continued, “I actually had to learn to sing again.  I just felt like an old, beat-up car that went in and got a paint job and had the dents knocked out.

Grant is a recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors, as well as a six-time Grammy winner.  “The Queen of Christian Pop” has won 22 Dove Awards.

You may remember the hit duet from Grant and Gill, “House of Love,” from 1994.  Grant also took “Baby, Baby” and “Every Heartbeat” to the top of the charts.  She sang “Return to Pooh Corner” with Kenny Loggins, and “The Next Time I Fall,” with Peter Cetera (former lead singer of Chicago).

From her biography on Wikipedia:

  • In June 2020, Grant had an open-heart surgery to repair partial anomalous pulmonary venous return (PAPVR), a congenital heart condition.[54]
  • On July 27, 2022, Grant was injured and briefly hospitalized, when she fell from her bicycle while riding near Nashville’s Harpeth Hills Golf Course.  She sustained cuts and abrasions.
