Carrie Underwood Credits 'Team Of Professionals' For Her Face
Winter has gone, spring is here – but we’re still hearing about Carrie Underwood’s fall.
In an interview that aired on Thursday’s episode of Today, the country star once again spoke about an injury to her face last November that reportedly required 40 stitches.
“Every day I feel a little bit more back to normal,” said Underwood.
In January, the singer told fans via her website that she was “not quite looking the same” and warned: “When I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different. 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.”
But, there’s been no obvious difference in Underwood’s face since she returned to the spotlight last month.
“I have a dedicated team of professionals who can spackle and paint and paste,” she explained on Today.
Underwood described the Nov. 10 tumble at the Nashville home she shares with Canadian husband Mike Fisher as “plain and simple … just kind of a freak accident.” She said she was home alone at the time and her son Isiah, 3, was sleeping upstairs.
“I just tripped taking my dogs out to do their business. It could have happened to anybody,” recalled Underwood. "I say if I had fallen anywhere else, it wouldn’t have been a problem. But there was just one little step that I went to catch myself on and I missed.”
