Carrie Underwood Makes First Public Appearance Since Facial Injury

The singer took the stage again after keeping a low profile following her fall last November. 

Carrie Underwood is back in the spotlight! After sustaining a nasty fall that left her requiring more than 40 stitches in her face last November, the singer took some downtime. As she recovered from the fall, she avoided sharing photos of her face — which she'd warned fans was "not quite looking the same."

But Underwood also had more positive updates for followers throughout the recovery process. Earlier this month, the singer shared that she was back in the studio recording new music. Then she let fans know that she would make her first post-injury public appearance at the April 15 Academy of Country Music Awards. 

Underwood's highly anticipated performance — which showcased her new song, "Cry Pretty" — was met with tons of support from fans and her fellow musicians alike.  Ahead of the show, host Reba McEntire said she was "looking forward to going over and hugging [Underwood's] neck and saying that I’m glad she’s back in the swing of things." 

After Underwood's emotional performance, she received a standing ovation from her peers. Just minutes after she wrapped singing, Underwood took to the stage with Keith Urban to accept an award for their duet, "The Fighter." 

"You just knocked it out of the park," Urban told Underwood. The previous American Idol winner responded: "Thank you for having me. I'm still shaking right now. Thank you." 

Before the show, Underwood shared a full-on photo of her face with Instagram followers.

And after her performance, Underwood's fans were quick to point out that her face still looks the same in their eyes.
