Making her first major TV appearance in months since her fall, the country singer is set to perform her new hit at the upcoming 2018 Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards. Until last week, she had shared no full photos of her face on social media since the accident.
The day before, Underwood shared another pic of herself rehearsing with her band for the event, which she captioned with, "Getting ready for the weekend...." She had an accident in November and hasn't performed since. "Miranda can sing too, but Carrie you know she's unbelievable", she said.
Underwood also said that her face is healing nicely, and she feels more like herself than she has before, presumably since November a year ago when she fell down a flight of stairs.
Underwood, 35, has been keeping fans posted during her recovery writing on her blog this week that she was "doing pretty darn good". "The show goes on and we're coming back". McEntire has now returned and she told Us Weekly that, "Since I had turned that duty over to Blake [Shelton] and Luke [Bryan] and then Luke and Dierks [Bentley], they just came back around and asked if I would be interested". A number of followers commented on the photograph and speculated it was a scar from her disastrous fall. "I definitely feel more like myself than I have in a while", she concluded. It really speaks to a lot of things that have happened in the past year and I hope when you hear it, you can relate those feelings to those times in your life. It means I've already been to support my favourite hockey player appearing out of retirement!
The other photos of the Carrie Underwood's face were from a distance or a side profile.
At this year's award ceremony, Underwood is nominated for 2 awards, Best Female Vocalist of the Year and Best Vocal occasion of the season.
Underwood released her single "Cry Pretty" earlier this week and revealed in the letter that she wrote the emotional song with Hillary Lindsey, Liz Rose, and Lori McKenna, collectively known as the Love Junkies.
