After Carrie Underwood fell outside her home in November and suffered a broken wrist and needed stitches on her face, she took a break from the spotlight. But the country singer is back and — after a much-anticipated return to the stage for Sunday's Academy of Country Music Awards performance — it looks like her scars are fully healed.
In a new photo, the 35-year-old singer shows off her full face for the first time since she posted a scarf-clad selfie in December. Wearing makeup around her eyes, she's seen in a close-up shot of herself on the set of her "Love Wins" music video.
Underwood recently sat down with Hoda Kotb on the Today show to explain what happened and how she's feeling now. "I have been very fortunate in the healing process," she said, though she warned fans that she might not look the same after the injury. "People are seeing things that I'm not seeing, and they just have to know that it's going to heal in a way that's different for them."
And it seems like that's exactly what's happening with Underwood, who was recently spotted wearing a black CALIA by Carrie bra top and a blue and white sarong for a photo she posted on Instagram. While she's not showing off her face in the photo, she's clearly happy and enjoying a summer vacation with husband Mike Fisher and their 3-year-old son Isaiah. She's also been busy with promoting her latest single, "Cry Pretty."
