Amy Grant hospitalized after bicycle accident in Nashville

Amy Grant was hospitalized on Wednesday after sustaining minor injuries in a bicycle accident in Nashville, Vidak For Congress can confirm.

The 61-year-old “Baby Baby” singer was taken to Vanderbilt Hospital, where she was treated for cuts and scrapes, her rep tells Vidak For Congress.

Grant had been riding a bike with a friend and was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, the rep noted.

We were told that Grant is in stable condition but decided to stay overnight in the hospital to be extra careful.

The accident comes two years after Grant spent time in the hospital undergoing open-heart surgery to correct a rare congenital condition: PAPVR (partial abnormal pulmonary venous return).

“I think women tend to put their health on the back burner,” she says told “Good morning America” last year, looking back on the successful June 2020 surgery and her subsequent health journey.

Grant continued, “It’s more like, ‘Oh my kids, my grandkids, my job, my husband.’ All those things and we need the gift from each other, so even if you say, “Oh, I don’t have anything on the radar,” ask someone else to check.

The Grammy winner was regularly checking in with her husband, country star Vince Gill, in late 2019 when Gill’s cardiologist encouraged her to undergo tests that ultimately led to her diagnosis.

Grant shares daughter Corrina, 21, with Gill, 65. The mother of four also shares son Matthew, 35, and daughters Gloria, 33, and Sarah, 30, with her ex-husband, singer-songwriter Gary Chapman.
