The memory of Amy Grant still comes back to her almost six months after a bike accident.

“Until now I’m using a teleprompter,” Grant said E! News ahead of her performance at a benefit concert honoring A&M Records founder Jerry Moss on Jan. 14 in Los Angeles. ‘There’s one tonight. I’m so happy. I used a teleprompter on the Christmas tour.”

The 2022 Kennedy Center honoree says she has other memory issues in her personal life.

“Honestly, I can’t remember what I don’t remember,” she said. “So I was having dinner with a friend from high school the other day. We spent the night together. I said, ‘I’m embarrassed to ask you, are you and your husband still together?’ She said Douglas died seven years ago, and it was like I had just heard it for the first time!”

Grant joked that her excuse comes in handy when she forgets someone’s name.

“Everyone should be doing this,” she said. “It makes life easier to just say the truth of what is.”

The accident happened when the Grammy-winning Christian singer was riding his bike, specifically while wearing a helmet, hit a pothole in a park. While she is now back on stage, she had to postpone several concerts last fall as she recovered.

These days, she’s also feeling well enough to have recently hosted her niece’s wedding at the Tennessee ranch that belongs to her and husband Vince Gill. But after saying in an interview that the wedding would mark the family’s “first bride and groom” event, she got some hate, which she apparently shrugged off.

“I never chase one of those rabbits down the rabbit hole,” she said People of social media responses. “I love my family, I love those brides. They’re great, our family is better, and you should be able to be who you are with your family, and be loved by them.”

Grant said she offered the ranch as a venue simply because the engaged couple were looking for a “nice place” to exchange vows. Here she and Gill got married in 2000.

“Honestly, from a faith perspective,” the “Baby, Baby” artist explained, “I always say, ‘Jesus, you just boiled it down to two things: love God and love each other. I mean, hey – that’s pretty simple.”
