Carrie Underwood can sing pretty and ‘Cry Pretty’ at ACMs

Carrie Underwood’s freak accident hasn’t slowed her down a step.

The country star made her triumphant return to the stage at the Academy of Country Music Awards Sunday night, five months after a fall at her Nashville home left her with a broken wrist and 40 stitches in her face.

Stunning in a sparkly silver-and-black cocktail dress with silver tears painted under her eyes, Underwood belted her new single, “Cry Pretty,” in a clearly emotional moment.

“The title refers to when emotions take over and you just can’t hold them back. It really speaks to a lot of things that have happened in the past year and I hope when you hear it, you can relate those feelings to those times in your life,” she wrote in a letter to fans when she released the single.
