The Grammy Award-winning hitmaker told People that the support of her husband — the 65-year-old singer — made all the difference during recovery.

‘The biggest thing was in the two months after the wreck, it was really depressing,’ the mother-of-four said.

‘Everything canceled, and I just said, “What if I’m never all the way back?”‘ 

Supportive: 'He said, "Things happen to people every day, and you just have to take one day at a time, and we're here, and I love you", she recalled her husband telling her; seen together on December 4 in Washington, D.C.

‘Well, [the doctors] said a 12 to 18–month recovery for a head injury,’ she said.

She added that ‘every once in a while, I’ll be talking to somebody, and they’ll say something that I guess I used to know, and I’ll gasp and go, “Are you kidding me?”‘

She was hospitalized in stable condition after her accident, but her doctor ordered extra recovery time, forcing her to cancel tour dates and postpone performances.

Since then, she has returned to the stage.
