Although Amy Grant was unable to attend the taping of the CMT Giants tribute to Vince Gill last week, the "Baby, Baby" singer contributed to the star-studded show with an emotional, pre-recorded message for her husband.
"Hey, my dear," Grant began. "I'm so glad I can add a few words to this night full of voices from people celebrating you and so much fine talent in this city."

"You know you're not just a great songwriter or a great guitarist or a great singer — all of those things are true, but Vince, what I love most about you and see up close every day is that you make music just like you live life,” she continued. "You're purposeful and reserved, and you're kind and honest. And funny. You are so easy to celebrate. And so have fun tonight. I love you so much and I'm so proud of you."
Grant, who has been married to Gill since 2000, suffered a concussion in a bicycle accident in July. The singer reportedly hit her head so hard that she was unconscious for about 10 minutes.
"Upon the advice of my doctors and other friends who have had similar recovery experiences, I choose to give myself the gift of a very simple fall season," she told fans in an Instagram post last month.
With his wife taking it easy, Gill was accompanied to the CMT Giants tapings by his two daughters, Corrina and Jenny.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet, Gill gave an update on Grant's health.
"She's doing great," he said. "She's pretty torn that she couldn't be here tonight, but with her accident and all, they thought it was best for her to just be quiet."
"It's hard for her because she's very active," Gil continued. "She knows that tonight she is well thought of, loved and represented, so all is well."
