If Carrie Underwood Wasn’t Healed, Could She Do This?
Carrie Underwood has shared behind-the-scenes photos from a Calia photoshoot taken after her November fall.
In the photos provided to People, Underwood isn't just posing her brand's duds. The "Cry Pretty" singer is swinging a kettlebell in what looks like a legit workout — there's no way she could do that if her broken wrist was still a big problem!
She broke her wrist when caught herself after falling down some steps at home in November. The 35-year-old superstar was taking the dogs out to use the bathroom when she tripped on a step and couldn't catch herself. In addition to wrist injuries, Underwood suffered significant facial abrasions that required 40 to 50 stitches. Closeup photos show evidence of a scar, but most people agree that Underwood looks no different.
She tells the Bobby Bones Show that she was "very fortunate in the healing process."
While Underwood stepped back from music during an extended break that began in early 2017, she has continued to promote her line of athletic wear. She's often spoken about how proud she is of Calia, and on social media she frequently posts photos of herself in her brand. Not being able to workout was one of the hardest parts of the injury, she says. Through it all, husband Mike Fisher did what he could to take care of her, although the singer admits she was not an easy patient.
"Cry Pretty" is Underwood's first new single in over a year. The song is the title track for an album set to be released on Sept. 14. She also teased that tour dates are coming, but thus far has limited stops on her 2018 calendar, including an August date at WE Fest in Detroit Lakes, Minn.
