In 2017, Carrie Underwood suffered from a serious fall that would sideline her for well over a year. The fall did some damage to her face that would require 3 dozen stitches.
Underwood doubted that she would ever be able to return and make music again. In an interview with Vulture Magazine, Underwood opened up about her concerns.
“I had wanted to be in the studio sooner than I was, actually recording these songs, but I had stitches inside my mouth, outside my mouth. It was physically impossible … Going into the studio for the first time, it was a mind game: ‘Do I sound the same? Is my diction the same? Does my mouth move the same as it did before?’”
“I would sing something and then look at David [her producer] and be like, ‘Did that all come out clearly?’ My m’s and b’s and p’s were kind of the issue. And he was like, ‘I thought it sounded great.'”
Underwood released Cry Pretty earlier this year. We are so glad that she is still making music.
