The Singer of “Baby, Bay” was unconscious for approximately 10 minutes after falling from a pothole. She was treated in a hospital for cuts and scrapes as well as a concussion.

“Amy is getting stronger every day,” Grant’s manager Jennifer Cooke said in the statement. “Just as she did after her heart surgery, we are amazed at how quickly she is healing. However, although she is doing much better, we have made the difficult decision to postpone her fall tour so that “She can focus on her recovery and rebuild her stamina. She wants to be able to give 100% on her tours and, unfortunately, we don’t think that will be the case by the time rehearsals start for the fall dates.” .
