Carrie Underwood Misses Gig After Breaking Wrist in Fall at Her Home
The country superstar said she has to "take some time" but will be all right after the slip-and-fall accident.
Country singer Carrie Underwood suffered a fall on the steps her home in Nashville Friday night, forcing her to bow out of her latest performance.
Underwood, whose hits include “Something in the Water” and “Before He Cheats,” had just co-hosted the CMA Awards this past Wednesday with singer Brad Paisley.
The singer moved audiences during the "In Memoriam" portion of the CMAs as she honored country artists who died this year, as well as those who died in the Oct. 1 Las Vegas massacre.
After her fall, the Grammy winner was taken to the hospital, where she was treated for a broken wrist, cuts, and abrasions, according to her publicist. She was later released.
Underwood later tweeted a message to her concerned fans, and praised her husband, Mike Fisher:
“Thanks so much for all the well wishes everybody... I’ll be alright... Might just take some time... Glad I’ve got the best hubby in the world to take care of me.”
As a result of the fall, Underwood was forced to skip a planned performance at the Country Rising concert at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville Sunday. The benefit show helped raise money to benefit areas ravaged by recent hurricanes, as well as victims of the Las Vegas shooting.
