The country superstar returned to the stage on Sunday, April 15, at the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards for her first performance since suffering an injury to her face last November

As OK! readers know, Carrie broke her wrist and injured her face after she fell on her front porch at her home in Nashville last November.
The fall resulted in the 35-year-old singer receiving 40-50 stitches to her face.
In a letter to her fan club in January, Carrie explained, “When I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different.”
Following the accident, Carrie kept a low profile, only showing partial images of her face on social media.
