The day before, Underwood shared another pic of herself rehearsing with her band for the event, which she captioned with, "Getting ready for the weekend...."

At the 2018 ACM Awards on Sunday night, the focus isn't only on honoring the best in country music. "Can't wait until tomorrow night!" The American Idol victor shared the first close-up selfie of her face after her facial injury back in November previous year, reports Entertainment Tonight.

"It's insane how a freak random accident can change your life", she said in a note to fans in January. The black and white picture only revealed half of her face, though she has kept most of her features below her nose under wraps since November.

Underwood, 35, has been keeping fans posted during her recovery writing on her blog this week that she was "doing pretty darn good".

She provided her fans an update last week, saying her wrist is almost back to normal and her face "has been healing pretty nicely" after receiving nearly 50 stitches from the fall. My wrist is sort of again to regular, about 90% there...and the docs say that final 10% will are available in time. "Along with my head has been healing well too", Underwood composed.

Underwood also said that her face is healing nicely, and she feels more like herself than she has before, presumably since November previous year when she fell down a flight of stairs. "I am grateful that it wasn't much, much, worse". Underwood said, referring to Fisher's return to the Nashville Predators.

"I honestly don't know how things are going to end up but I do know this: I am grateful". The performance will be Underwood's comeback as it will be her first public appearance after the scary fall which led her to a major injury to her attractive face and her wrist back in 2017.

Underwood is nominated at this year's ACM Awards for female vocalist of the year, as well as for vocal event of the year (with Keith Urban).
