Carrie Underwood is preparing for her comeback! The country star, who took a step out of the public eye for months after injuring her face in a freak accident, returned to social media with another post-surgery photo on Friday. However, this time the singer looked exactly like her old self as she was pictured gearing up for her upcoming Academy of Country Music Awards performance.
“Getting ready for the weekend…” she captioned the picture which showed most of her face as only her mouth area was covered by a microphone.
Back in November, the “Before He Cheats” singer fell at her Nashville home, injuring her face and wrist. As a result, the 34-year-old received 40-50 stitches to her face and warned fans she “might look a bit different. However, for the past few weeks, Carrie has shared several photos of her face and fans have said she looks the same.
“I’m doing pretty darn good these days,” Carrie wrote on her blog earlier this week. “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.”
She added: “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. It also means I’ve been home to support my favorite hockey player coming out of retirement!”
Carrie will be performing her new single “Cry Pretty” live at the ACM Awards. The country star’s return to the stage will mark be her first post-surgery performance.
