Carrie Underwood to Hit the Stage at ACM Awards for Her First Performance Since Face Injury

The country crooner will be at the Academy of Country Music Awards on April 15.

Carrie Underwood is ready to return to the limelight!

The 35-year-old country crooner will be performing her soon-to-be released single at the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday, April 15, which will be the first time she's hit the stage since taking a nasty fall at her home in Nashville, Tennessee, last November.

Underwood shared with her fans that following the fall, she had to undergo surgery for a broken wrist and get 40 to 50 stitches on her face. Since then, the "Champion" singer has been seemingly hiding her face from the public eye. However, on Friday, Underwood posted an Instagram snapshot of herself at rehearsals, which could be the first image she's shared of her full face since the accident.


Over the weekend, she also teased that she has something in store for her fans on Wednesday at 6 a.m. ET., but only posted a photo to Instagram of her eye crying glitter tears. 

Meanwhile, the 53rd ACM Awards, hosted by Reba McEntire, will broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 15 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. In addition to performing, Underwood is nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year as well as Vocal Event of the Year for “The Fighter” with Keith Urban.
