Over a month ago, Carrie Underwood suffered a painful fall on the steps of her Nashville home. Her spokesperson provided a statement to The Tennessean following the fall, saying that “she was treated at the hospital for non life-threatening injuries including a broken wrist and cuts and abrasions.”
As a result of her fall, Underwood was forced to withdraw from the Country Rising benefit concert at Bridgestone Arena. In addition, she was unable to attend her induction ceremony at the Oklahoma Hall of Fame. Per the Hall of Fame’s rules, potential inductees can’t be inducted if they are unable to attend the ceremony. Because of this, Underwood will have to wait to be inducted another year.
In the immediate aftermath following her fall, Underwood’s social media accounts were fairly quiet. She did take the time to thank her fans for all of their well-wishes, and shared that her husband Mike Fisher was taking care of her.
Thanks so much for all the well wishes everybody…I’ll be alright…might just take some time…glad I’ve got the best hubby in the world to take care of me.

Two days after Underwood issued that tweet, she underwent surgery on her broken wrist. Underwood shared the details of the surgery with her fans the following day, saying that she had to have metal hardware placed in her wrist.
I just wanted let everyone know that I’m doing great. Had surgery on my wrist yesterday & all went well…even though I’ll be setting off airport metal detectors from now on…I’m so thankful for the doctors, nurses, family & friends who’ve been taking such great care of me.

Since then, Underwood has remained fairly absent on social media. Her team shared most of the content that went on her various social media accounts, which included information about her official website’s Black Friday sale and promotional material from her live concert film Carrie Underwood: The Storyteller Tour – Stories In The Round, Live from Madison Square Garden.
About a week ago, Underwood shared her first current photo since her fall. But the photo didn’t show her. Instead, it was a photo of her almost three-year-old son Isaiah, who was decorating a Christmas cookie.
Finally, on Tuesday (December 12) Underwood appeared in her first-known photo since her fall. The photo was shared by reality star Adrienne Gang, who saw Underwood at the gym. Gang was excited to see Underwood there, and asked if she would pose for a picture with her. Underwood happily agreed, and Gang wrote that she was “adorable and so gracious.”

Underwood appears to be sporting a brace of some sort on her arm, but other than that we’d never guess that she had recently been injured or had surgery. Gang didn’t have the slightest idea Underwood had been hurt, as she later tweeted that she “had no clue she was injured.”
We think Underwood is looking great, and we’re so glad that she’s able to be out and about again! We’re sending her continued prayers for a full recovery.
