Carrie Underwood Injured in Fall Outside of Home
Carrie Underwood will be taking some time for rest and recovery after a fall left her with a broken wrist on Friday night (11/10). According to The Tennessean, the CMA Awards co-host took a hard fall on the steps outside of her home.
Underwood was treated at the hospital for her wrist, cuts and abrasions, a spokesperson told the media outlet. The statement said that her recovery will “take some time” and she “appreciates all prayers and well wishes.” Underwood’s husband, Mike Fisher, reportedly rushed back to Nashville to be with her. She has since been released from the hospital.
Because of her injuries, the Oklahoma native will no longer be able to take part in Sunday night’s (11/12) Country Rising benefit concert. The “Before He Cheats” singer was scheduled to perform as part of the lineup that consists of George Strait, Jason Aldean, Sam Hunt, Dierks Bentley, Chris Stapleton, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire and Keith Urban, among others.
The singer recently hosted the 51st annual CMA Awards alongside Brad Paisley. The duo marked their tenth consecutive year hosting together. During the show, Underwood performed an In Memoriam tribute to the country stars that had passed, as well as the victims of the recent Las Vegas shooting. The touching moment was one of the night’s most buzzed about performances.
