Carrie Underwood Discusses 2017 Face Injury: 'It Just Wasn't Pretty'

In a segment that aired on NBC's " Today" show on Thursday, Underwood sat down for an interview with Hoda Kotb.

"Am I the only one that didn't notice a change in Carrie Underwood's face?" one fan tweeted during the show. "I definitely feel more like myself than I have in a while".

During their interview, Kotb remarked that Underwood looked exactly the same as she did before her injury, to which the "Before He Cheats" singer replied humbly, with a smile, "I have a dedicated team of professionals who can spackle and paint and paste". "It just wasn't pretty".

Fans were finally able to peep Underwood's "new face" during her 3-minute performance at the Academy of Country Music Awards on April 15.

After her accident, the country music star initially pulled away from the spotlight to heal, but in recent months she's shared Instagram photos of herself in the studio and working out.

"When you're singing something that's just straight from your heart, it's easy to be in the moment and be connected to it. It's like wow, there was something different about that performance", Underwood said.

Just six months after her traumatizing fall, Carrie Underwood continues to rise above the fear and courageous the feeling of nervousness in her comeback.


"I just fell. I just tripped taking my dogs out to do their business", she described. I chipped my tooth but it was just my skin, thank the Lord.

Underwood also spoke about the accident on April 19 on Sirius XM's The Highway.

She later told fans about the full extent of her injuries in a blog post on her Fan Club website.

'I honestly don't know how things are going to end up but I do know this: I am grateful.

"When I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different", she wrote at the time.

"I love this because I have had conversations with people and I feel like people are telling me places that they cry", the activewear designer said.
