Carrie Underwood announces return after ’gruesome’ accident

Country superstar Carrie Underwood teased her new single on Instagram with a close-up photo of her eye with glitter in the shape of tears falling from it. Her caption said "This Wednesday, April 11, 6am ET." Then on Monday morning the Academy of Country Music announced that she would be performing her new single at the show on Sunday.

The performance will mark Underwood's return to the stage and spotlight following her fall in November 2017, requiring the singer to get 40 to 50 stitches on her face.
