  • Reba McEntire 53 Academy of Country Music Awards

Carrie Underwood has shared the first up-close photo of her face since a terrible fall a year ago that left her with a broken wrist and more than 40 stitches in her face.

On April 4, Carrie shared the very first semi-full photograph of her face since her accident on social media.

"Getting ready for the weekend", she captioned the shot, along with hashtags "#CryPretty #ACMawards".

The singer has been teasing her return to the spotlight since the start of the month.

Ballerini is a star in her own right after a highly-anticipated performance with McEntire, at the 2017 Country Music Association Awards.

"First off, physically, I'm doing pretty darn good these days!", she wrote.

The country singer shared the photo hours after posting another distant photo of herself at rehearsal. At the Billboard Music Awards in 2014, she performed "Something Bad" with Miranda Lambert and looked beyond fierce in her skintight, black leather shorts which she paired with a leather jacket and dark makeup.

Carrie said in the letter to her fans that she believes everything happens for a reason, and the injuries allowed her to slow down and spend time her husband Mike Fisher and 3-year-old son Isaiah.

Underwood also said that her face is healing nicely, and she feels more like herself than she has before, presumably since November past year when she fell down a flight of stairs. She called it a silver lining to the fall. "My wrist is nearly back to normal, about 90% there...and the docs say that last 10% will come in time. Along with my head has been healing well too", Underwood composed. "I undoubtedly really feel extra like myself than I've shortly". "It additionally means I've been house to help my favourite hockey participant popping out of retirement!"

Underwood is nominated for Female Vocalist of The Year and Vocal Event of The Year for "The Fighter" alongside Australian singer-songwriter Keith Urban.
