Carrie underwood announcement new album

Carrie Underwood revealed on her blog that she needed 40 to 50 stitches on her face after falling outside her Nashville home in November.

Fans will have a chance to hear Underwood rock it out live this weekend, when she performs the song at the Academy of Country Music Awards.

"Physically, I'm doing pretty darn good these days!" the country music star wrote in a post to her website Tuesday.

She reported that her "wrist is nearly back to normal" and that "my face has been healing pretty nicely as well. And my face has been healing pretty nicely as well", Underwood wrote. One of the silver linings for me in this healing process is the time I've gotten to spend with (husband) Mike (Fisher) and (young son) Isaiah.

Then Underwood got down to business, discussing her new single "Cry Pretty," which will be available for streaming and downloading on April 11.

"Even though I've had the best people helping me, I'm still healing and not quite looking the same", Underwood told her fan club in a letter in January. You can like Academy of Country Music on Facebook or follow on Twitter at @ACMawards and Instagram @ACMAwards for more immediate updates.

Last weekend, fans were asked to choose who they think is the most iconic victor of the singing reality TV competition.

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

Carrie also shared her big plans to return to the music scene by dishing more details on her new song, "Cry Pretty", after, per Access Online, she teased the song earlier this week on social media. I hope you're all ready for more silly posts of me at Preds' playoff games!

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 wrote. "I love you and love your songs", one person wrote, with another saying she looks "as attractive as ever". It's emotional. It's real.
