Amy Grant in stable condition after bicycling accident

Singer Amy Grant is in stable condition at a Nashville hospital after an injury sustained in a bicycling accident on Wednesday.

First responders transported artist to Vanderbilt Medical Center to treat her for cuts and abrasions after, Grant’s representative Velvet Kelm confirmed to USA TODAY.

She was wearing a bike helmet, per the report.

Grant stayed overnight Wednesday at hospital. Kelm said the singer is in stable condition.

The bicycle accident comes two years after Grant received open-heart surgery to fix a birth defect.

On Sunday, Grant was named one of the Kennedy Center’s five honorees for 2022.

“Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine ever receiving this prestigious Kennedy Center Honors,” Grant said in a statement. “I cannot wait to celebrate with my fellow honorees, friends and family. Thank you for widening the circle to include all of us.”

The center plans to fete Grant in its 45th class of honorees that also includes actor George Clooney, singer Gladys Knight, Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Tania León and the rock band U2.

Kennedy Center Chairman David M. Rubenstein lauded Grant, saying in a statement that she “became the first artist to bring contemporary Christian music to the forefront of American culture, then equally thrived after crossing over into mainstream pop with hit after hit, and today is revered as the ‘Queen of Christian Pop.’”
