The Full Face
All of these news bytes come days after Underwood posted an image of her face on social media on Friday, April 7. The "Inside Your Heaven" singer can be seen rehearsing with her band on an unknown project, which we now know is the upcoming performance at the Academy of Country Music Awards. Underwood commented on the photo how much she missed performing with her band.
Underwood has also been nominated for two Academy of Country Music Awards: Female Vocalist of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year for "The Fighter," a duet that she recorded with Keith Urban.
The First Face Photo
Underwood released a candid black or white photo of her in the recording studio on April 4, where she is looking intensely at an object at a distance. She was wearing a ripped hooded sweatshirt. Her social media followers not only noticed that Underwood showed half of her face but also speculated that the American Idol champion was going to be releasing new music soon.
A $10,000 Donation
While Underwood was recuperating from her fall, she donated $10,000 to help out her childhood friend, Justin Durrett, who serves as the assistant police chief in her hometown of Checotah, Oklahoma. Durrett and his family needed help paying their medical bills after he was severely injured in a car accident that left him with a broken neck and a bruised spine.
When Underwood addressed her fans at the end of December 2017 regarding her injury, she forewarned them that she might look different the next time they see her. The country music singer learned from her husband that her doctors had to put between 40 to 50 stitches in her face. Underwood suffered from severe injuries when she fell from the steps outside her home.
