Amy Grant is in stable condition at Nashville’s Vanderbilt University Medical Center after a bicycle accident in Nashville on Wednesday.

Grant, who is married to a country singer Vince Gill, is being treated for cuts and scrapes after she fell off her bike. She was wearing a helmet, a spokesperson for the “Baby Baby” singer confirmed to People.

Grant spent Wednesday night in the hospital and is expected to stay Thursday night for observation and extended care.

The singer’s cycling accident came two years after her last public health scare. Grant had open-heart surgery in 2020 after she learned during a routine checkup for Gill that she had partial abnormal pulmonary venous return — or PAPVR.

“My own birth defect was an intrusive killer, and I had no idea,” Grant said on Good Morning America. “So my advice would be, take care of yourself, the world needs you. Even if you feel like everything is fine, you don’t really know what’s going on inside.”

She added that women tend not to prioritize their health while looking after their families and doing their jobs.

“We need each other’s gift,” she said. “So even if you say, ‘Oh, I don’t have anything on the radar,’ just get someone else to check it out.”

Grant’s latest triumph came earlier this month when she was revealed as one of five recipients of this year’s Kennedy Center Honors. Grant will be honored on the Kennedy Center Opera House stage in Washington, DC, on December 4, along with U2, George Clooney, Gladys Knight and Tania León.

In a statement following the announcement, Grant said, “Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine ever receiving this prestigious Kennedy Center Honors. Over the years, I have seen so many of my heroes serenaded by colleagues and other artists, always captivated by the music and the film’s ability to bring us together and see the best in each other.”
