Carrie Underwood made her first television appearance since the CMA Awards back in mid-April for a live performance of “Cry Pretty” at the ACMs. Today, she joined Hoda Kotb on NBC’s Today for her first televised interview since her accident that caused a media frenzy.

A brief recap: Underwood was taking her dogs outside of her Nashville home when she tripped and fell. As the country music starlet went to catch herself, she came down on her wrist, suffering a break that resulted in surgery with metal plates being inserted. She also injured her face, needing over forty stitches to repair the damage. A very honest Underwood shared publicly that she was nervous about looking the same the next time she emerged into the spotlight — which piqued everybody’s interest.

Luckily for Underwood, she is surrounded by some of the best medical professionals out there and she looks as good as new; but that doesn’t mean this blonde bombshell isn’t still feeling insecure about the scars that she sees when she looks in the mirror.

Underwood sat down with Kotb to discuss the incident, her first performance since her medical procedures, and why she seemed so shell-shocked following her incredible performance. You may be able to relate to this country music leading lady more than you think!
