Carrie Underwood has stayed out of the spotlight since a fall outside her home in November left her with a broken wrist and more than 40 stitches to her face. While the “Jesus, Take The Wheel” singer hasn’t appeared publicly since the accident, she is slowly making her way back to social media.
In a letter to her fan club on New Years Eve, Underwood warned that she might look different next time we see her in front of a camera.
“When I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different,” Carrie wrote. “I’m hoping that, by then, the differences are minimal, but, again, I just don’t know how it’s all going to end up.”
In a photo posted to Instagram on Friday, Underwood shared her first post-accident selfie as she posed alongside her husband, Mike Fisher, in a show of support for the End It Movement, a cause that seeks to stop modern slavery. Mike is seen with his fisted hand in front of his mouth with a bright red “x” on it. Carrie is holding a large “x” in front of her mouth.
The photo drew overwhelming support from Underwood’s fans who have been anxious to see her back in the spotlight. Many wrote comments complimenting her beauty and support of a good cause.
“We don’t care what you look like Carrie we love you no matter what sweetie you will always be beautiful your heart is what matters!!!” one fan wrote.
“Your beauty is on the inside…your fans will always love you with or without a scar,” another fan commented. “I believe it’s what you bring to the fans that matter, we will always love you!!!”
Just because Carrie Underwood has been laying low doesn’t mean she hasn’t been making music. The American Idol champ is reportedly in the studio working on her sixth studio album.
