Over the summer, singer Amy Grant was hospitalized following a scary bike accident.
The Baby, Baby singer fell off her bike after hitting a pothole in Nashville in July, 2022. She was left unconscious for around 10 minutes and took around three months to regain her strength. She was even forced to postpone some of her concerts and only started performing three months later, in November.
Recently, Grant opened up about her condition and revealed that the accident affected her memory and that she was forced to use teleprompter to remember the lyrics to her own songs.
“My memory is still coming back, and the stamina, they say 12-18 months after an injury like that,” Grant told E! News before a performance on January of this year. “Six months in, so I feel really good! I anticipate just getting better.
“So far, right now, I use a teleprompter,” she added. “There’s one tonight. I’m so glad. I used a teleprompter on the Christmas Tour.”
In another interview, with Fox News, 62-year-old Grant said, “Honestly, I can’t remember what I don’t remember. So, I was at dinner the other night with a high school friend. We used to spend the night at each other’s houses. I said, ‘I’m embarrassed to ask you, are you and your husband still together?’ She said that Douglas died seven years ago, and it was like I had just heard it for the first time!”
This wasn’t the first time that Grant spoke of her healing.
“Last week was my first time back on stage, and I can’t think of a more gentle way to get back into the limelight than doing a Christmas concert with my dear friend Michael W. Smith,” Grant said while she attended the 45th Kennedy Center Honors.
“I was nervous that first day. I forgot lyrics to songs that I wrote. I’m just on a healing journey, but this time here. You know, love and kindness is also very healing, and I’m not kidding – I feel filled up from head to toe,” she said.
She then added that it is her husband, Vince Hill, who is her biggest support.
“He has just been so patient.” She added, “Vince has a kind of way of grounding the space that we’re in even without saying a word.
“I think early on I said, ‘What if I’m different, what if I’m not the same?’ and he said, ‘Hey, every day we wake up a little different, and we love each other, and it’s good.’”
She then added, “I feel like my old rascally self.”
We hope Grant would be able to regain her memory back completely and she won’t be experiencing issues in the future.
