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 reportedly 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. She released a personal update to her fans via social media the following morning.
She stated, “I just wanted [to] let everyone know that I’m doing great,” assuring fans that her surgery went well. “Even though I’ll be setting off airport metal detectors from now on...I’m so thankful for the doctors, nurses, family, and friends who’ve been taking such great care of me,” she continued.
PEOPLE confirmed that the country star’s recovery will take some time. Before her wrist surgery, she had to pull out of the “Country Rising” benefit concert that took place in Nashville on Sunday, November 12th with other popular country singers including Sam Hunt, Jason Aldean, Keith Urban, and others.
Previously, she also thanked fans for the well wishes and publicly acknowledged the “best hubby in the world [Mike Fisher],” who immediately flew back to Nashville to take care of his wife after the incident.
This news comes shortly after Underwood also made headlines for two eye-catching events from the CMAs—her tear-jerking performance in honor of the Texas church massacre victims, and when her and co-host Brad Paisley came under fire for blasting President Trump on stage.
