Carrie Underwood 'doing pretty darn good' after nasty fall

Carrie Underwood 'doing pretty darn good' after nasty fall

Carrie Underwood says her face is "healing pretty nicely" in the wake of her fall.

The Before He Cheats singer scrapped a series of appearances and performances after a tumble at her home in Nashville, Tennessee in November left her with a shattered wrist and facial injuries that required 40-plus stitches.

Underwood mentioned her next tour in still in the works, but her comeback performance will take place at this Sunday's ACM Awards, where viewers can hear her new single live for the first time.

"First off, physically, I'm doing pretty darn good these days!" she wrote of the healing process.

"My wrist is nearly back to normal, about 90 percent there ..."

"There is also another part of the story that I haven't been ready to talk about since I have still been living it and there has been much uncertainty as to how things will end up", she wrote in a post on her fan club's website. I've been calling it "forced relaxation".

The mom-of-one then proceeded to share details about her new single, which will be released on Wednesday, April 11 at 6 a.m. ET.

While recovering from her injuries, Underwood has also been busy focusing on songwriting and hitting the recording studio. It's been challenging and incredibly rewarding to be involved in every aspect from start to finish.

She previously warned fans that she "might look a little different" after her accident, but so far no one has been able to see anything but her normal, gorgeous mug.

In perhaps some of the biggest news for Underwood career-wise, she reveals she's taking a big creative step this year. It's emotional. It's real.

"I am so glad you are OK". The American Idol champion stated that the song encompasses all the emotions that she experienced as she went through the accident. Thank you all so much for your love and support this year and always.

The singer told her fan club Tuesday to look out for more appearances at her husband's National Hockey League games (husband Mike Fisher plays for the Nashville Predators) and to watch out for her new music.
