Carrie Underwood Opened Up About “The Fall” and Scar on Her Face

CARRIE UNDERWOOD did a radio interview yesterday and talked about the infamous fall that broke her wrist and left her with a scar on her face.

It happened when she was walking the dogs and tripped on the porch.  She tried to catch herself with her right hand but missed the step.  She said she landed, quote, “Around my mouth.”  She was thinking “busted lip” until she looked in the mirror.

She ended up getting some 40 stitches . . . but at least she had time on her side.

Quote, “I was lucky that when it happened everything was shutting down in the music world [because] of the holidays.  But I was at a point where I didn’t know how things were going to end up.  I didn’t know what it was going to heal like.”

She admits to hiding the scar with makeup, but she won’t pretend it never happened.  Quote, “I don’t know if I’ll ever be done talking about it, because it was an event in my life and I’m okay talking about it.”
