When celebrities suffer an accident as brutal as the one Carrie Underwood went through, they often take their time to go back to the spotlight.
That’s exactly what she did. The incident that left her face with ‘gruesome’ injuries after she required 40 to 50 stitches shattered her self-esteem and put her away from the stages and social media.
According to Country Music Nation, she spent the last couple of weeks sharing some photos about her that made her fans believe she was working on some new projects and rehearsing for an event.
The first one was posted on April 4, 2018. Even though the simple fact of seeing a new photo of her after the accident was surprising, what captured people’s attention was that she was in the studio.
At that point, everybody thought she was working on a new album and that she would be announcing it in the following months, but the truth was different. On April 6, two days later, her fans got surprised once again.
She uploaded a different photo that showed her rehearsing with the band. Since her next scheduled performance was in June for the CMA Fest, people couldn’t imagine what she was rehearsing for. The Academy of Country Music clarified everything.
On April 9, the ACM issued a press release announcing all the artists who would perform at the ceremony on April 15, and she was one of them. To make things even better, they set clear that she would perform a new single, which was officially released on April 11.
The song, titled Cry Pretty, was described by Underwood as emotional and real and her presentation proved her right. The audience gave her a standing ovation that seemed to last forever while she shed some tears.
People could say that she is officially back, and her self-esteem is going back to where it should be. Her next presentation is set to be in June this year.
