Carrie Underwood is sharing more scary details from her fall with “Today” show host Hoda Kotb.
“Plain and simple, it was just kind of a freak accident,” Underwood shares of the 2017 fall that left her with 40-50 stitches in her face and a broken wrist. “I just fell. I just tripped taking my dogs out to do their business.”
The 35-year-old singer adds, “I say if I would have fallen anywhere else, it wouldn’t have been a problem. There was one little step that I went to catch myself on and I missed.”
Sharing more details, Carrie tells Hoda that when she fell outside her Nashville home on November 10, 2017, she was alone, aside from her three-year-old son, Isaiah.
“In the beginning, I didn’t know how things were going to end up. It just wasn’t pretty,” Underwood reveals, explaining why she shared cryptic messages on her social media.
It wasn’t until April that Carrie shared the first photo of her face since the injury, with a behind-the-scenes studio pic.
Carrie quickly followed this up with the first face forward photo a day before her amazing ACM Awards performance of her new single “Cry Pretty,” telling Hoda it’s thanks to her team that no one really notices her scar.
“I have a dedicated team of professionals who can spackle and paint and paste,” she tells Kotb.
Aside from revealing she’s feeling “a little more back to normal” every day, Carrie shares another project she’s been working on with Kotb, her latest line of athletic wear for Calia. Watch more with the pair below.
