Legendary country artist Vince Gill has cancelled some of his upcoming shows after his wife was hospitalized after sustaining injuries in an accident on Wednesday.
Gill’s wife of 22 years, Amy Grant, was riding her bike Wednesday afternoon near the Harpeth Hills Golf Course south of Nashville when she fell. She was wearing a helmet, but suffered injuries including cuts, lacerations and bruises, per her management team.
The 61-year-old was taken by ambulance to the Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville where she has been admitted for treatment.
Grant’s team shared an update about her condition Thursday afternoon saying that she will remained hospitalized until “later this week.”
“Thank you to all those offering prayers and well wishes for Amy after her bike crash yesterday,” the post reads. “She is in the hospital receiving treatment, but is in stable condition. She is expected to go home later this week where she can continue to heal. Your kind thoughts and heartfelt prayers are felt and received. Amy was wearing her helmet and we would remind you to all do the same!”
The update came several hours after news of Vince Gill’s concert cancellations was posted online. A post made to Twitter by Capitol One Hall where Gill was scheduled to perform Friday and Saturday, says that the shows were cancelled due to an “unforeseen family emergency.” Unfortunately, the shows are not expected to be rescheduled.
