Amy Grant is back performing for the first time since her bicyle accident. The incident put Grant in the hospital forcing her to cancel or postpone several months of tour dates. Grant's first show back was in Memphis, Tenn., on Saturday (Nov. 27), where she performed with fellow artist Michael W. Smith.
Grant is grateful to be able to perform again. "Thank you Memphis! After a season of healing at home, it was good to be back on stage with Michael W. Smith, Michael Tait and my musical family."
Grant is also thankful to everyone who made the performance possible. She continues, "Many thanks to @compassion , @parentingtodaysteens for your partnership on the road and for the important work you do in the U.S. and around the world. And thank you to @balsamhill for providing exquisite trees and decor to make our stage look so beautiful.
"Finally, Thank YOU for your many prayers over the last few months and as my healing continues. I hope to see some of your familiar faces in the audience over the next few weeks."
On July 27 this year, Grant was riding her bicycle near the Harpeth Hills Golf Course in Nashville with a friend at about 3pm when she fell. While she was wearing a helmet, she was knocked unconscious for 10 to 15 minutes (per her husband, Vince Gill). All shows scheduled for August were postponed, and a month after the accident, she added that additional dates would be shuffled. The start of her Christmas tour with Michael W. Smith was never in doubt, however.
