Country superstar Carrie Underwood suffered serious, but non life-threatening injuries after falling on the steps outside her home on Friday night (November 10).
According to a statement provided to The Tennesseean by Underwood's spokesperson, the singer was treated at the hospital for a broken wrist and cuts and abrasions. The statement adds that Underwood's recovery will "take some time" and that she "appreciates all the prayers and well wishes."
The fall happened just two days after the "Something in the Water" singer co-hosted the CMA Awards alongside Brad Paisley for the 10th consecutive year. She was scheduled to perform at Sunday's Country Rising benefit concert at Bridgestone Arena, but canceled following her accident.
George Strait, Jason Aldean, Chris Stapleton, Reba McEntire, and Keith Urban are just a few of the artists slated to appear at the star-studded benefit concert that will raise funds to help those affected by recent tragedies including the Las Vegas shooting and hurricane ravaged Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.
During Wednesday night's CMA Awards show, Underwood offered none of the night's most emotional and talked about performances of the night when she paid tribute to music industry icons and those killed at the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting in Las Vegas. Underwood sang the classic Christian hymn "Softly and Tenderly" as photos of those lost displayed behind her.
