Carrie Underwood has shared the first up-close photo of her face since a awful fall previous year that left her with a broken wrist and more than 40 stitches in her face. After a more than a decade spent with Sony Music Nashville, Underwood switched to Universal Music Group previous year.
Five months after the fall that left her with "between 40-50 stitches" in her face, and "not quite looking the same", Carrie Underwood posted a close-up selfie to Instagram on Saturday night, in advance of her Sunday performance at the Academy of Country Music Awards.
The event, held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, will recognize the Las Vegas shooting that took place October 1st at a music festival near the Mandalay Bay resort while Jason Aldean was on stage.
The goal for this year's award show is effectively the same as every other year before it: To try and entertain in however way possible.
And, Reba received her 16th nomination for Female Vocalist of the Year. "Body Like a Back Road" is nominated for song of the year and single record of the year. The track's producer, Scott Hendricks, also is an Oklahoma native.
The 2018 Academy of Country Music Awards, more commonly known as the ACM Awards, airs from Las Vegas, Nevada. "Maren Morris could win this year and that could be a huge upset". Meanwhile, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Thomas Rhett, Alan Jackson, and Keith Urban are among some of the most notable performers.
The song is the first Underwood will release under her new recording contract with Universal Music Group Nashville. Revealed presenters for the event include Drew Brees, Ashton Kutcher, Nancy O'Dell, Rebecca Romijn, Sugarland member Jennifer Nettles with Kristian Bush, Keifer Sutherland and Lindsey Vonn.
