WOMAN IN FIRST PHOTO WITH CARRIE UNDERWOOD SINCE GETTING 40+ STITCHES SPEAKS OUT
Over New Year’s weekend, country music superstar Carrie Underwood wrote a letter to her fans and shared details about her scary November fall. Just a couple days after co-hosting the CMA Awards for the tenth time with Brad Paisley, Underwood fell down outside of her Tennessee home and broke her wrist, which required immediate surgery.
She hasn’t posted a photo of herself since then and has stayed pretty quiet over the holidays, but in a year-end letter to her fan club, she opened up about her injury and described the fall as “life-changing.”
“It’s crazy how a freak random accident can change your life. In addition to breaking my wrist, I somehow managed to injure my face as well. I’ll spare you the gruesome details, but when I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told Mike that he had put between 40-50 stitches in…I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different,” Underwood wrote.
A little over a month after surgery, Underwood was spotted on social media for the first time in a photo with a fan. That fan happened to have quite a following because she used to star on the Bravo reality show Below Deck. Adrienne Gang wrote, “Just worked out next to @carrieunderwood NBD … she is adorable and so gracious… LOVE HER!” alongside a photo of the two of them after the workout.
