Just a few days after hosting the CMA Awards — and performing an emotional tribute to the victims of the Las Vegas shooting — Carrie Underwood took a bad spill at her Nashville home, breaking her wrist and suffering multiple other injuries. The singer is said to be okay and recovering, but she might need a little downtime to take care of herself.
“On Friday night, Carrie Underwood took a hard fall on some steps outside her home,” her rep confirmed in a statement. “While there were no life-threatening injuries, she was taken to the hospital to be treated. She sustained multiple injuries including a broken wrist and some cuts and abrasions from the fall. Her recovery will take some time and she appreciates all prayers and well wishes.”
According to The Tennessean, the country star’s injuries forced her to cancel an appearance at the Country Rising benefit concert in town on Sunday night.
Underwood addressed the news on Twitter, thanking her fans for their well wishes and letting them know she might take a little time off.
“I’ll be alright…might just take some time,” she tweeted. “Glad I’ve got the best hubby in the world to take care of me.” Her husband, retired NHL hockey player Mike Fisher, traveled back to Nashville to be with her after the accident, according to her rep.
The couple often share pics of their time at their home together with their two-and-a-half-year-old son, Isaiah. Recently, they turned a “typical Thursday night” into a superhero-themed pajama party, dressing as characters from the popular kid’s show PJ Masks. By the sounds of it, Underwood has a tight-knit crew to take care of her as she bounces back from the fall. All our best to her for a speedy recovery!
