This longtime country superstar took a nasty fall on the steps just outside her home and broke her wrist while suffering other minor injuries late Friday night, according to a statement issued by her rep.
Carrie Underwood most recently made headlines after delivering one of the most impassioned and powerful tributes to the victims of the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting in Las Vegas at the annual CMA Awards.
In the statement from her rep, it was confirmed that Underwood did, in fact, break her wrist and suffered other abrasions and bruising as a result of the fall. Further details were not available, but the rep also announced that Underwood would be unable to perform at the scheduled tribute concert dedicated to the victims of the Las Vegas shooting and devastating hurricanes that impacted Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and the Caribbean.
Just several days after the fall, Underwood herself took to social media to issue a message to fans.
“Thanks so much for the well wishes everybody,” Underwood said in a tweet on Sunday, November 12th. “I’ll be alright…might just take some time…glad I’ve got the best hubby in the world to take care of me.”
