Carrie Underwood took center stage at the 2018 Academy of Country Music Awards this week and brought the entire house down. In the first performance since her accident earlier this year, the country singer was moved to tears.
Earlier this year in January, Underwood fell off of her porch and broke her wrist. Due to the same fall, the singer needed to receive 40 stitches on her face, which also was injured. Anyone in the spotlight knows that your face is often times your “money maker,” and it’s definitely traumatic to undergo such an injury.
Underwood shared an award win with country star Keith Urban for vocal event of the year for their duet “The Fighter.” During the acceptance, Urban told Underwood she “knocked it out of the park,” and the singer was brought to tears.

Carrie Underwood really just came out on stage, gave the best performance of the night by miles, sounded better than on the official recording, got a standing ovation, and the longest applause I’ve ever heard, then won Musical Event of the Year. WHEW.
