Amy Grant, who was injured in a bike accident last month, has postponed all her upcoming Fall tour dates to allow more time for recovery.
The change in schedule was revealed in a statement from Grant’s manager Jennifer Cooke, who said, “Amy is getting stronger every day. 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 build 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 start for the fall dates,” Cooke added.
Cooke said Grant will resume touring with her Christmas tour with Michael W. Smith and her annual “Christmas At The Ryman” residency with her husband Vince Gill.
“Amy would like to extend her gratitude for all the many good wishes and prayers offered since the accident. She feels the impact of the collective good will extended her way,” the manager added.
Grant suffered cuts and bruises after she fell while cycling with a friend near the Harpeth Hills Golf Course in Nashville on July 27.
The 61-year-old “Baby Baby” singer was discharged after a brief hospitalization at Vanderbilt Medical Center. Doctors have ordered additional recovery time at home.
Grant had already postponed her shows for August as per the doctor’s orders.
