Carrie Underwood Performs First Time Since Face Injury At ACM Awards

Carrie Underwood made her grand return to the ACM Awards stage on Sunday (April 15) night after suffering from serious injuries in Nov. 2017.

Months ago, the recording artist fell down many stairs in her Nashville, Tennessee home and severely injured her face and broke one of her wrists. Underwood's face injury was so serious that she required 40 to 50 stitches. Up until that time, she's been keeping a low profile, as she'd recovered. However, Underwood stepped back on to the scene when she took the 2018 ACM Awards stage to debut her new single, "Cry Pretty."

Sparkling in a shimmery dress and glittery eye makeup, which were shaped as tears, Underwood stepped back onstage like a true champion. Her past injury didn't affect her dynamic voice one bit. Underwood gave her performance her all and sounded absolutely incredible. 

Every single person in the audience seemed to agree because the entire crowd was on its feet and cheering the songstress on. Her fellow Country music artists just couldn't believe their eyes and ears. Underwood was back and she didn't miss a single beat. After her performance, Underwood just stood onstage for a minute and teared up. In other words, she did a pretty cry. As expected, the performance was a very emotional one for the star. 

Before Underwood's performance, she posted a close-up photo of her face on Instagram. “Had a great rehearsal for the @acmawards! Can’t wait until tomorrow night!” the star captioned the picture. See it below. 

We think we speak for everyone when we say, "That's what you call a comeback!" Way to go, Carrie and welcome back!
