Amy Grant loses memory after bike accident

Amy Grant suffered from memory loss after a July 2022 bicycle accident that resulted in a concussion and hospitalization.

“Honestly, I don’t remember what I don’t remember,” the 62-year-old Christian pop artist told E! Saturday news.

Grant then shared an anecdote about a recent dinner out with an old high school friend that showed how much she had forgotten.

“We used to have sleepovers at each other’s houses. I said, ‘I’m sorry to ask you, are you still with your husband?'” the “Baby, Baby” singer said.

“She Douglas died seven years ago, it seems to be the first time I’ve heard of it!”

Grant also revealed that she even had trouble remembering the words to her own songs.

“So far, right now, I use a teleprompter,” the six-time Grammy winner said while attending Music Center Live: A Concert Celebrating Jerry Moss in Los Angeles. “Having one tonight. I’m so happy. I used a teleprompter on my Christmas tour.”

Grant returns to tour in November 2022, just four months after the Nashville accident.

Breath of Heaven said that in retrospect, she no longer remembers the beginning of her healing process.

“My memory is still coming back, and my strength. They say 12-18 months after an injury like that,” she explained.

Despite her tough health battles, Grant remained optimistic and said she considered the accident a “blessing”.

“I see people at the airport and they say, ‘Hey, great to meet you!'” the “Simple Things” singer shared. “I said, ‘Call me crazy. You gotta tell me your name! Someone I know.'”

She later joked: “Everyone would love that excuse! Everyone should. Telling the truth makes life easier.”
