Carrie Underwood is one of the most famous faces in the country music industry, and that face suffered some changes after she fell down some stairs. Now, she reveals that the incident only made her stronger.
Underwood, who won Season 4 of American Idol in 2005, had more than 40 stitches in her face after falling outside of her home last year, leaving her with some scars.
But, according to the singer, who talked to Red Book Magazine, the incident made her realize that people don't seem to look at others that much and that one should be comfortable enough to be the way he or she is.
She is now more confident, more introspective and also more open to the world around her, and all of those traits can be found within her new album, Cry Pretty, which Underwood believes to more personal than her previous five.

When asked about her facial injury and the effects that it had on her confidence, Underwood revealed that it was harder in the beginning because she didn't know how it would turn out.
But, as she came to learn, people often missed the scars she was left with, which taught her that others tend to look more at themselves than at others, which helped her keep her head up high.
Regarding the rumors that she had been submitted to plastic surgery and that the fall was nothing but a publicity stunt, the singer shared that she tried not to worry too much about them.
Underwood said that she didn't have any sort of surgical procedure done on her, although she would like to have plastic surgery in order to make the scars look better.
The former American Idol winner was also asked whether she would like to have more children with her husband of eight years, Mark Fisher, to which she replied that they may have missed their chance.
But, even though she is 35 years old, Underwood hasn't discarded the possibility of adopting a child in the future, something that she has previously discussed with her husband.
In the last part of the interview, the country music icon boosted her fans' confidence by saying that everyone has insecurities, even the most confident people in the world, and that they shouldn't be ashamed of it. Instead, they should just do their best and not worry about things they can't change.
