Carrie Underwood Tearfully Accepts ACM Award After Emotional First Performance Since Face Injury


Carrie Underwood had an exhilarating ACM Awards night!

The 35-year-old singer had just walked off stage from her emotional “Pretty Hurts” performance when she and Keith Urban won the Academy of Country Music Award for Vocal Event of the Year for their song “The Fighter” on Sunday.

As Urban took the stage, Underwood made her way back and was visibly still shaken from her first performance since her fall in November that left her with a broken wrist and an injury to her face that required 40 to 50 stitches.

“It was such a pleasure to do this song with Carrie Underwood,” Urban expressed before turning to the singer. Walking up to the microphone, the blonde beauty told the audience that she was “still shaky” and thanked everyone for their support. Her tears blended in with the glitter that was underneath her bottom lashes.

“Thank you for having me,” Underwood told Urban. “I’m still kinda shaky right now. Thank you, guys. Thank you, country radio.”

The two then embraced and walked off stage together as Underwood continued to get teary-eyed.

Underwood had been frequently updating fans on her recovery and on Saturday shared her the first selfie of her full face since her accident. A source told ET on Thursday that Underwood is “totally back to normal and feeling great and healthy.”
