Carrie Underwood gave fans an update on all her injuries Tuesday just days ahead of her first public appearance since her accident last fall.

“I just wanted to say hello and share some updates with you all… lots of exciting stuff happening. First off, physically, I’m doing pretty darn good these days,” the 35-year-old country singer shared on her fan club website.

Underwood injured herself after taking a fall at her home in November that resulted in stitches to her face and a broken wrist.

“My wrist is almost back to normal, about 90% there…and the docs say that last 10% will come in time,” she added. “And my face has been healing pretty nicely as well. I definitely feel more like myself than I have in a while. One of the silver linings for me in this healing process is the time I’ve gotten to spend with Mike [Fisher, her husband] and Isaiah [Fisher, her son]. I’ve been calling it ‘forced relaxation.’ Sometimes I think things happen in order to make us slow down.”

“The other thing I’ve been up to over the past few months is of course making new music,” she continued. “I’ve been in the studio writing and singing a TON, but I’ve also been able to be creative in a way that I’ve never been before, which has been very fulfilling and empowering. While I was writing last year, I met a writer/producer named David Garcia. We hit it off in a big way and I’m excited to say that we are co-producing my album together. I’ve always been lucky to have a voice in the writing and recording process, but this is the first time I am this involved in the production of my music.”

On Monday, the Academy of Country Music Awards announced that the “Jesus Take The Wheel” singer will be performing her latest hit, “Cry Pretty,” Sunday night at the annual awards program.
