On September 14, country singer Carrie Underwood released her latest album titled “Cry Pretty.” However, before she recorded the album, she injured herself quite badly.


She fell and injured her face and during a recent interview, she revealed how that affected her recording process. The singer faced some self-doubt and second-guessed herself.

Carrie Underwood, 35, has opening up about how her facial injury affected her new album. During the interview with “Vulture” the country singer said:

"I felt like the differences were more in my head than they were in anybody else’s that would listen to the things I was doing.”

"I had wanted to be in the studio sooner than I was, actually recording these songs, but I had stitches inside my mouth, outside my mouth. It was physically impossible."

Her first trip to the studio after her fall was what she called "a mind game." The star faced a lot of self-doubts and asked herself some crucial questions.


The star recalled thinking:

"'Do I sound the same? Is my diction the same? Does my mouth move the same as it did before?'”

Her internal monologue of doubt continued with her saying:

"I would sing something and then look at [my co-producer, David Garcia] and be like, 'Did that all come out clearly?' My m’s and b’s and p’s were kind of the issue. And he was like, 'I thought it sounded great.'”


She concluded:

"Things change just as you get older; your muscles change. I kind of expect I’m not always going to sound like I’m 22 coming off of ‘American Idol.’ Hopefully I get better."


However, the injury wasn’t the only challenge that Underwood had to overcome during recording. She also suffered three miscarriages with her husband, Mike Fisher, before announcing her successful pregnancy in August.

A source had this to say about the latest pregnancy:

"Carrie is so healthy and happy. Carrie and Mike are so thankful for this precious time, they are great parents and have always wanted more children so they believe this is a true miracle."
