Carrie Underwood Shares Update on Her Face Injury, Announces New Single 'Cry Pretty'

Carrie Underwood shared a note to her fans today and there’s a lot to talk about!

First, the country superstar spoke about her major injuries suffered late last year (she took a bad fall at her home and needed over 40 stitches in her face.)

“First off, physically, I’m doing pretty darn good these days! My wrist is almost back to normal, about 90% there…and the docs say that last 10% will come in time. And my face has been healing pretty nicely as well. I definitely feel more like myself than I have in a while. One of the silver linings for me in this healing process is the time I’ve gotten to spend with Mike and Isaiah. I’ve been calling it ‘forced relaxation.’ Sometimes I think things happen in order to make us slow down,” Carrie wrote.

She then announced that her single, “Cry Pretty,” will be released on Wednesday (April 11) at 6am ET.

“The title refers to when emotions take over and you just can’t hold them back. 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,” she posted. Carrie will perform the song live this Sunday.

    Damn 40 stitches in the face, did she walk through a glass window face first?

    Ah yes, let me remind everyone about these injuries just in case someone dares to think about plastic surgery…

    i’m on the fence. i kind of think it’s a cover for plastic surgery, but i once had a face injury that lasted 4-6 months and i barely left the house. self-esteem took a major blow, so it’s possible she needed that long to feel ok about being photographed and whatever. hard to feel pretty/sexy/beautiful with a messed up face.

    What injuries? We keep seeing her face looking just fine.

  • Midnight

    Plastic surgery stitches. These are very fine stitches that are very close together. Sometimes they are under the injury and then over to close things up. It looks like she has a scar on her left cheek if you zoom in.
    I find her drama to be appalling.
    She acts as if she was disfigured. Ok she has a small facial scar. It will fade over time and most likely she will have additional laser treatments to reduce the scar further. Of course there’s makeup and she wears a TON of it ALL THE TIME!
    There have always been rumors about her vile personality and this behavior and disgusting vanity just reinforces those rumors. The real question is how did she fall and why? If she messed up her wrist breaking her fall, how did she slice open the side of her face to such an extent? Those circumstances are suspicious and her bizarre and immediate gratitude to “the best hubby in the world” taking care of her seems like a subtle intentional statement attempting to deflect suspicion. Why would she feel the need to do that? Generally, that is not the first statement one would make, praising their mate. Taking care of her? She wasn’t bedridden. Drama. Drama. Self-centered drama and yet vague as can be.

    Zoom in. It looks like a small
    Irregular scar on her left cheek. She was working out a month after the injury, so it couldn’t have been that serious. I’m sorry about your injury. It sounds like it was serious and I’m sure that strenuous activity was not advised during your healing processs. Carrie acts like she was disfigured and I find her behavior to be disgusting. I understand the self esteem thing. It’s valid, but because she was out and about a month after the injury, it wasn’t as drastic as she is whining about. Isn’t she supposed to be a devout Christian? Yeah, vanity is one of the 7 deadly sins.

  • soyeahsowhat

    it’s funny…. i thought about the christian angle too… and that vanity shouldn’t be something she is concerned over (or lying). but maybe because she’s a public figure her image/looks became more important? whatever she has it can’t be too serious. i don’t see the scar and i’m sure she’ll be wearing loads of makeup when she performs. i swear i used a bottle of makeup daily when i was healing, lol. we won’t see it, whatever ‘it’ is. but she’s milking it for some reason. i kind of expected she’d be up-front and honest. like remember when she locked her kid in the car and copped to it right away?

    It sounds like you had a serious injury and I’m happy you recovered. But her comments of “I may look a bit different” are absurd and it angers me because there are people who have life changing accidents (like a face going through a windshield and you need complete reconstruction!). Or people born with deformities and don’t have the finances to correct the issues. Ok. She has a scar, but I’m sure she wasn’t given a poor prognosis. Either be up front and show the scar or don’t mention it at all. I’m the suspicious type and I really think that this “accident” happened under mysterious circumstances. Initially she only talked about the wrist, but I’m thinking someone started digging, hence her ANNOUNCEMENT about her face. That’s why she keeps mentioning it, to thwart away suspicion and questions and yet she doesn’t give specifics. Since she talks about it, no one is going to ask specifics of the fall. This truly leads me to think that she was pushed or drunk. She also made it a point to say her husband was out of town when the fall occurred and he rushed back. He may have been out of town, but did he arrive home before the “fall”??? If you know what I’m saying?? Freak falls happen,but usually if you break your fall, you save your face. Injured wrists are the most prevalent injuries due to a fall. Reflex action. Also, people have a reflexive action to pull their head back while breaking the fall w their hands. I’m with you, I can’t figure out her what her angle is. She isn’t the type and doesn’t need a charade to promote her next album.

  • soyeahsowhat

    so you lean in the direction of possible abuse?

  • Midnight

    Could be possible. I don’t know these people and who am i to make such an accusation, but I do know (because of the work I do) when an “strange accident” happens and the statement includes the loving husband, either “he is taking care of me or he was out of town and rushed back” red flags are raised. If her husband was out of town there is absolutely NO reason to include him in a statement. He wasn’t there. Even if she legitimately fell and he rushed back like she made sure she stated, it’s odd she mentioned him out of the gate. There is no need to mention him voluntarily. Most people would not. They would make a statement about the accident and that’s it. It’s not like she was in the hospital w cancer receiving chemo where it’s common for a person to mention their support system, as that’s an integral part of healing. To my knowledge she didnt say Mike is helping with our son (which makes sense since she had a broken wrist) She bragged about her wonderful husband and how he was taking care of her. BTW, there are different types of wrist injuries. One is caused by grabbing and twisting. We don’t know what her specific injury was. The doctors do. So again, that brings me back to her initial statement of Mike being out of town and rushing back. Well did Mike rush back before or after the accident? So that’s my suspicious theory and I’m certainly in no position to point fingers at a situation that I’m not a witness to, but from other comments I’ve read, other people think something else went on. People say she doesn’t have a great local reputation and that he is known to be a hot head. IDK. I have read about interviews and events where people say she is a first class B. But that’s neither here or there if she got knocked around.
