Carrie Underwood Reveals Scars In Close-Up Photo Following Her Fall

Carrie Underwood is done with hiding.

On Friday, April 20, 2018, the country music star took to Instagram to share a close-up selfie, which showed off her scars around her chin and upper lip, for the first time after getting seriously injured in a nasty fall last November.

"Ready to cheer on the boys tonight! Especially that #12! I hear he's alright!" Underwood captioned the snapshot in support of her husband, Mike Fisher, who plays for the Nashville Predators. "@mfisher1212 @predsnhl #LetsGoPreds."

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Underwood, who recently made her triumphant musical comeback at the 2018 ACM Awards, underwent surgery on her broken wrist and received 40 to 50 stitches in her face after falling on the steps of her home in Nashville, Tenn.

During her recovery, the American Idol alum had taken to lying low, having warned her fans that she may look "different" due to her injuries. However, photos of herself shared on social media over the last month showed that she seemed to look the same as she always had.

"I was clumsy and I tripped," the 35-year-old singer recently revealed on SiriusXM's The Highway channel, while giving her first interview following her accident. Explaining that it happened at night while she was taking her dogs out, she said, "I held onto the dog leashes in my left hand and went to catch myself with my right and just missed the step. There's one lone step. ... I said if I had fallen anywhere else, I would have been absolutely fine, but it's just because there was, I went to catch myself and I missed."

Underwood, whose new album, Cry Pretty, will be released in September, added, "I thought I just busted my lip. Then I walked inside and took the dog leashes off and took my coat off and went to go survey the damage and was like, 'Oh, no!' ... It wasn't pretty."

"I've been very fortunate in the healing process," the "Champion" singer said on The Bobby Bones Show podcast last week. "I didn't know how things were going to end up. ... I didn't know what it was going to heal like."
