Carrie Underwood discusses her fall: 'It just wasn't pretty'”

The 35-year-old country superstar gave her first televised interview since her serious fall last November, which severely injured her face. The singer sat down with Hoda Kotb during the May 10 episode of Today, and Hoda revealed she didn't think Carrie looked any different than her pre-accident days.

Underwood kissed her trophy after Brooks handed it to her.

Carrie spoke candidly about how her injury "wasn't pretty".

"I just fell. I just tripped taking my dogs out to do their business", she described. The singer stayed out of the spotlight for months as she recovered from the incident, which left her with a broken wrist and roughly 40 stitches. Underwood was hailed for her performance of "Cry Pretty" during the show, which Hoda noted was more powerful than she was expecting. "I have a dedicated team of professionals who can speckle and paint and paste".

"Am I the only one that didn't notice a change in Carrie Underwood's face?" one fan tweeted during the show.

"I have had conversations with people, and I feel like people are telling me places where they cry", she said, laughing. "We wanted things to be about the song that night, so we tried to avoid doing other things beforehand, just because I didn't want to talk about my accident".

Aside from revealing she's feeling "a little more back to normal" every day, Carrie shares another project she's been working on with Kotb, her latest line of athletic wear for Calia. "But I got to write and I got to record", she said.

"I say if I'd fallen anywhere else, it wouldn't have been a problem. It was, like, wow, you know, there was something different about that performance".

"My face has been healing pretty nicely as well", she added. "I am grateful that it wasn't much, much worse", she continued. "You look at these people like they're not even human beings, so when I get to see her in person - somebody that I truly, truly, truly look up to with all my heart and soul - I'm going to be real excited".
