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.

However, for the past month, as Carrie prepared to make her return to the spotlight at the ACM Awards, the singer began showing more of her face in pics shared to her social media accounts.
