Back in November, the 35-year-old country singer Carrie Underwood slipped and fell at her Nashville home, resulting in a broken wrist and facial injuries.


She was rushed to the hospital where she received more than 40 stitches to her face. She was released the same day, and for the next five months, Underwood avoided the limelight while recovering at home.

Underwood still shared photos of her recovery to Instagram, but she would either cover her face or take the picture from a distance because her scars left her feeling insecure.

She finally returned to the spotlight during the Academy of Country Music Awards in April this year, where she performed her new single, Cry Pretty. Hoda Kotb from Today recently interviewed her about her 'scary fall.'


Underwood said it was a freak accident, and that she fell while taking her dogs out to do 'their business.' She broke her wrist and knocked her face on the step.

Kotb remarked that Underwood still looks the same. "I have a dedicated team of professionals who can spackle and paint and paste," she replied.

Underwood still doesn't feel like herself but added that she feels "a little more back to normal" with every passing day.

The minor scrapes and bruises have healed, but it will take a while before full functionality returns to the wrist. She was forced to wear a wrist brace to speed up the recovery process.


Underwood confirmed that a metal bar had to be inserted in her wrist. She joked on Twitter that she would be 'setting off airport metal detectors.'

Not only has she returned to performing, but Underwood also balances raising her 3-year-old son, Isaiah, with managing her activewear line, Calia.

Fans can also look forward to the release of her next album, Cry Pretty. She is co-producing the album with producer David Garcia, and it will be available from September 2018.
