Carrie Underwood Gives Powerful Performance After Facial Injury

April 15, 2018Apr 15, 2018

Sunday evening was a big night for country superstar Carrie Underwood. The singer took the stage at the Academy of Country Music Awards for the first time since her facial injury last November. 

Underwood suffered a broken wrist and an injury to her face, which required more than 40 stitches, after she fell on her front porch last fall. In January, she shared with fans that she "might look a bit different" once she gets back in front of a camera.

Since the incident took place, Underwood has kept an extremely low profile on social media. When she did post a photo her face was strategically covered, which has led to much anticipation for her Sunday night performance.

On April 4, she showed half of her face in a photo posted to her Instagram account. However, it wasn't until Saturday night that she posted a full-face selfie while at her ACM rehearsal.

Underwood, 35, made an impressive comeback when she performed her newest single "Cry Pretty." The "American Idol" alum gave an emotional performance and even had to fight through the tears following Keith Urban's compliment about how she "knocked it out of the park."

“Thank you for having me,” Underwood said to Urban following her powerful performance. “I’m still kind of like…shaking right now. Thank you.”
