Country superstar Carrie Underwood has disclosed in a statement to fans that she suffered a serious fall in early November. The accident resulted in a broken wrist, but more importantly, the singer also injured her face to the extent that she had to undergo some 40 to 50 stitches.
Underwood was to have appeared at a country music benefit only two days later, and was forced to pull out at the last minute.
In a statement on her fan club website, Underwood wrote, “… I’ve had the best people helping me, I’m still healing and not quite looking the same. I honestly don’t know how things are going to end up but I do know this: I am grateful. I am grateful that it wasn’t much, much worse.”
Underwood also told fans she’s getting ready to return to the studio very shortly to begin work on new material.
