Carrie Underwood explains her 'gruesome' injury

Entertainment News

Carrie Underwood shared new details about her November fall in her first interview since the incident. The "Cry Pretty" singer revealed that the brutal tumble happened at night when she was taking her dogs out for a walk. “I was taking the dogs out to go pee-pee one last time and I just — I tripped,” Underwood said on The Bobby Bones Show on Thursday. “There was one step and I didn’t let go of the leashes. Priorities! So that's why my left hand's fine, but I went to catch myself and I just missed a step." She added, "If I had fallen anywhere else I would have been perfectly fine, but it was one step that messed everything up.”

The 35-year-old singer underwent surgery on her face that required 40 to 50 stitches, and afterward she warned fans she was “not quite looking the same.”

Underwood made her triumphant return to the stage for the first time since the fall at last Sunday's Academy of Country Music Awards, and fans didn't notice a thing (much to the dismay of some). When Bones noted that he also thought she looked the same, despite her warnings, she replied, "Thank you."
