Bones asked Underwood where she had her stitches and she said, "Around my mouth".
Later on in the interview, the singer added that the hardest part about the aftermath of the fall was losing the use of her wrist. I was taking the dogs out to go do their thing before bed, and I just was clumsy and I tripped.
Underwood said if it weren't for that "one step" she would have been "perfectly fine". But I went to catch myself and I just missed a step.
Tune to 8:18 to see Carrie talk about the injury. "If I would've fallen anywhere else I would've looked just fine". There's one lone step.
Carrie Underwood never imagined her fall could have caused so much damage. Though she was afraid someone would "creep" on her at the grocery store and post it on Instagram while she was healing, she emphasized, "I've been very fortunate with the healing process".
The star then heartbreakingly admitted during her first interview of 2018 that she was anxious her 3-year-old son Isaiah would be scared of her when he saw her for the first time since her accident.
In a press release, Underwood said of the album, "At this point in my career, I feel stronger and more creative than ever".
"I thought I just busted my lip when I walked inside", she explained. To her, that's just a "natural evolution" as a musician.
Underwood had warned fans after the fall that when they saw her next should would "not quite [look] the same".
The singer announced that her new record, "Cry Pretty", which she's co-producing with writer-producer David Garcia, will be released September 14. If she created a ton of interest in what she looks like by her extended absence and guarded photos on social media, it was unintentional, she insists.
