Singer Carrie Underwood also injured her face in fall

Carrie Underwood's fifth studio album, "Storyteller," out Oct. 23, includes the current top 10 single "Smoke Break."

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Country singer Carrie Underwood is bringing in 2018 by sharing more details about more injuries that she suffered after a fall that broke her wrist.

In a blog post to fans on New Year’s Day Underwood says she sustained a facial injury that required 40-50 stitches and that she’s “not quite looking the same.”

She says she’s grateful that the injuries she suffered in a November fall on stairs at her home in Nashville weren’t much worse and for the people who have helped her since the accident. She also cautioned fans that she might not look the same when she’s ready to be seen on camera again.

“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.”
