34-year-old Grammy award-winning country music star Carrie Underwood suffered an unfortunate incident only days after she co-hosted this year’s Country Music Awards. On Friday, November 10th, she fell on the steps outside of her home, which resulted in several injuries.
That evening, the “Jesus Take The Wheel” singer was admitted to the hospital for “serious injuries,” according to Country Rebel. Fortunately, her injuries were not life-threatening, but doctors stated that she had a broken wrist and several cuts and abrasions.
On Tuesday, November 14th, Underwood had surgery on her wrist. The day after the surgery, she released a personal statement, assuring fans that she was “doing great.” Previously, she also thanked fans for their well wishes, but said healing would “just take some time.”
Unfortunately, due to the fall, Underwood was unable to attend the 2017 American Music Awards in Los Angeles, California on Sunday, November 19th. She was a nominee for “Favorite Female Country Artist," up against Miranda Lambert and Maren Morris.
Underwood received the winning title for “Favorite Female Country Artist.” Although she was not present to pick up her award, she sent a special thank you to her fans on social media.
The “Before He Cheats” singer stated, “Thank you, fans, for this. I so wanted to go to the AMAs just in case because I know how hard you’ve been voting. I’m sorry I couldn’t get up there and thank you all on stage...you guys are incredible and am so thankful for you,” she said acknowledging her recent accident.
