Fans Can't Seem To Find The Difference Between Carrie Underwood's 'New Face' And Her Old One
After an accident that led to 40-50 stitches in the singer's face, Underwood seems to be good as new.
During the Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday night, Carrie Underwood made her first public appearance since suffering a "freak random accident" in November that left her "not quite looking the same." We've got news for you, Carrie: You look amazing!
The singer's performance of her newest single, "Cry Pretty," went without a hitch. Understandably, however, fans who'd been worried for Underwood since the accident — a fall that left her with a broken wrist and 40-50 stitches in her face — were a bit distracted. She looked completely healed. No scars, no visible marks, and nothing to indicate she'd been in a serious accident just months prior.
Underwood announced her accident on New Year's Day, and warned fans she could look "a bit different" the next time they saw her.
"There is also another part of the story that I haven’t been ready to talk about since I have still been living it and there has been much uncertainty as to how things will end up," the 35-year-old shared in a post on her personal site. "In addition to breaking my wrist, I somehow managed to injure my face as well. I’ll spare you the gruesome details, but when I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told Mike that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in."
"Now, here we are 7 weeks later and, even though I’ve had the best people helping me, I’m still healing and not quite looking the same," she continued. "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 when I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different. I’m hoping that, by then, the differences are minimal, but, again, I just don’t know how it’s all going to end up."
Thankfully, it looks like the songstress has recovered like a dream.
