Amy Grant Speaks Out After Suffering Brain Injury Following Bike Accident

Amy Grant speaks out after suffering brain injury following a bike accident. The six-time Grammy award winner with Christian and pop hits like “Baby Baby” feels like she’s finally emerging from her ordeal. Back in 2021, Amy hit a pothole while riding her bike. 

She knew she would be banged up, but she never imagined she would suffer from a brain injury. Amy went from knowing the names of her family and singing to writing what she did know in a notebook. 

“I wrote this long book. It was a spiral notebook. And I was just writing to remember, writing — making sure I could remember everybody’s name in my family, which I couldn’t, at first,” she said. This included no memory of any of the songs she had written and performed. 

She was told it would take up to 18 months to fully recover, but she’s not letting the road to recovery keep her parked. She isn’t out of the woods yet, but through God’s healing and strength, she’s getting there. 

“I feel fantastic I mean, really, from 2020 on, I feel like I had to, if I were a car, I’ve made a lot of trips to the shop. And I feel like I’m emerging. I went, ‘Oh man, I feel like a classic now.’ And actually, sort of re-revved up in a really beautiful way,” she said

And she’s performed a time or two. The night of her first performance, she prayed for God’s grace and strength. She recalled how much it meant to have support and great friends. “So the first night of the Christmas tour, which is the first time back on tour, teleprompter, and I was on heels,” she said. “I was, like, holding onto the piano. Before the show, I was like, ‘I’m so scared. I’m so scared.’ And I work with so many great singers, and they’re like, ‘We got you, we got you.’"

With the support of her husband, Vince Gill, and her family, she is back to performing, and she’s back in the studio to record new music. Despite the bike accident, Amy seems to be in a better place. 

“Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise,” Jeremiah 17:14.
