Carrie Underwood Stuns Fans With First Photo After Scary Face Injury

Carrie Underwood stunned fans with a new Instagram pic that allowed them a closer look at the country superstar, who received over 40 stitches to her face after a nasty fall in November of 2017.

The singer shared a picture from a rehearsal with her band.

In the photo, she is seen holding a microphone and singing in front of her band.

She captioned the pic, “Missed these guys. #bandrehearsals.”

The practice session with her band sends a strong hint to fans that Carrie is planning a return to the stage after her scary November 10 accident when she fell on the steps outside of her home.

The singer suffered multiple injuries, including a broken wrist and damage to her face which resulted in 40 to 50 stitches.

Carrie did not reveal further information about why she was rehearsing with her band.

She could be planning a return to the stage at the upcoming Academy of Country Music Awards, which will broadcast live from Las Vegas on April 15. If so, this would be her first public appearance since her accident.

Carrie is nominated for two awards at the event: female vocalist of the year and vocal event of the year, for her duet with Keith Urban on “The Fighter.”

The singer penned a social media post on December 31, 2017, to her fan club revealing that when she fell down at home back in November, she didn’t just break her wrist, she also injured her face so severely she needed scores of stitches.

The singer confirmed that surgery “may leave her looking a little different.”

Carrie revealed in a fan club post that her accidental fall left her with multiple injuries, according to Entertainment Tonight.

“In addition to breaking my wrist, I somehow managed to injure my face as well,” she wrote.

“I’ll spare you the gruesome details, but when I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told [my husband] Mike [Fisher] that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in…

“I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different.”

She added: “I honestly don’t know how things are going to end up but I do know this: I am grateful.

“I am grateful that it wasn’t much, much worse. And I am grateful for the people in my life that have been there every step of the way.”
