Amy Grant postponed her remaining tour dates on Friday as the singer continues to recover after falling from her bicycle in July. 

“Friends, we regretfully need to postpone Amy’s previously scheduled tour dates in September and October due to Amy needing more time to recover from injuries and a concussion sustained in a bicycling accident that occurred in Nashville on July 27, 2022,” her team wrote in a statement. 

Grant had previously postponed her August shows immediately after the accident. 

All postponed dates will be rescheduled for February through April 2023, the statement said.

The “Baby, Bay” singer was unconscious for about 10 minutes after her fall after she went over a pothole. She was treated at a hospital for cuts and abrasions as well as a concussion. 

“Amy is getting stronger every day,” Grant’s manager Jennifer Cooke said in the statement. “Just as she did after her heart surgery, we are amazed at how fast she heals. However, although she is doing much better, we have made the difficult decision to postpone her fall tour so she can concentrate on her recovery and rebuild her stamina. She wants to be able to give 100% when she tours and, unfortunately, we do not think that will be the case by the time rehearsals would start for the fall dates.”

Her husband of 22 years, Vince Gill and their daughter Corrina sang Gill’s song “When My Amy Prays” on stage at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville a week ago in honor of Grant and Gill told the audience his wife is getting better every day, a Facebook post from Grant that shared video from the concert said. 

Corinna changed the lyrics to “when my mama prays.” 

Gill told the audience he had not performed the song recently because of “her accident and everything she’s been going through.” He added, “I thought how sweet it would be for her youngest to sing this song I wrote for her.”
