Carrie Underwood is opening up even more about the terrifying injury that caused her to take a step back from the spotlight. As Hollywood Life noted, Carrie Underwood discussed more details about her injuries during her time on The Bobby Bones podcast. The singer was not afraid to explain exactly what happened with the stressful ordeal she went through.
In November 2017, Underwood fell, which caused her injouries. But, on the podcast, she shared more details about how the unfortunate moment went down. While on the podcast, she explained, "I fell down … I was taking the dogs out ... And I just, I tripped." The singer continued, "There was one step and I didn’t let go of the leashes. Priorities! So, that’s why my left hand is fine. But, I went to catch myself and I just missed a step. If I had fallen anywhere else I would’ve been perfectly fine.
But, there was one step that messed everything up.”
She went on to say that she thought that the accident only left her with a busted lip, but that was obviously not the case.
As she previously mentioned to her fans in January, her fall left her with over 40 stitches on her face and a broken right wrist, per E! News.
Underwood said that it wasn't easy to have an injured right hand saying that it "can throw off your world, having an appendage that is there, but that you can't use." She did say that she was "fortunate" that she was able to take some time for the injuries to heal properly.
"I was lucky that when it happened, everything was kind of shutting down in the music world and we had the holidays and stuff like that.” But, she also said that she's been ready to resume her normal life again after the accident.

As a child growing up in Oklahoma, Carrie watched the Grand Ole Opry on television at her grandparents’ house. In 2005, Carrie made her Opry debut two weeks after winning American Idol. Less than three years later in 2008, Carrie was inducted into the esteemed organization by Garth Brooks.
Over the weekend, Carrie celebrate another Opry milestone by performing on the hallowed circle for the 100th time during the first of four sold-out shows.
Opry member Connie Smith introduced Carrie on Saturday’s first show and presented her with a commemorative print and a rose bouquet in celebration of 100 Opry appearances.
“Opry fans, all of us Opry members and the entire Opry family are excited when you come home to the Opry stage,” said Connie. “Even when you’ve been on the road more than 200 days a year, you’ve always come back to the Opry. That tells me you love us, and we love you right back.”
“I grew up dreaming of one day performing here and maybe even becoming a member,” said Carrie. “That dream comes true over and over each time I take the Opry stage. Here’s to the next 100.”
