There will be no shows this weekend for Vince Gill as he has canceled three of them in the wake of his wife Amy Grant's hospitalization after suffering a bike accident last week. There were cancellations of Gill's performances on Thursday, July 28th in Charlotte, NC, and both shows in Tysons, VA on Friday, July 29th, and Saturday, July 30th as well. His rep has yet to comment publicly on the matter, but he has confirmed that the two shows have been canceled and will not be rescheduled.
As a result of a fall from her bicycle on Wednesday, Grant was taken to the hospital in Nashville. As a result of the accident, she was transported by ambulance to Vanderbilt Medical Center for treatment of cuts and abrasions that she had sustained. There were no major injuries to Grant, as he wore a helmet and no major injuries were reported. However, he was listed in a stable condition and was admitted for observation as a precaution.
"Thank you to all who offered prayers and well wishes for Amy after her bike accident yesterday," reads a post on Grant's social media page thanking those who offered prayers and well wishes. There is a stable condition for her at the moment as she is receiving treatment in the hospital. In the coming weeks, she is expected to be able to go home and continue to heal there. It is with great pleasure that I receive your kind words and heartfelt prayers. In the case of Amy, she was wearing her helmet, and we would like to remind you all to do the same!
It is only fitting that Grant is one of the five celebrities who will be receiving the annual Kennedy Center Honors this December in Washington, DC. Since its founding in 1964, the annual Honors Gala has made a strong mark on the cultural and social calendar of Washington, DC, and its national broadcast on CBS has become a highlight of the television season. Aside from Gladys Knight and U2, several other musicians will be honored in 2022.
