Carrie Underwood Posts First Close-Up Selfie Since Her Accident


The 2018 awards show, airing on CBS, came six months after a lone gunman killed 58 people at a country music festival in Sin City in the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.

Jason Aldean, the singer who was on stage when the gunshots started, has been joined by a couple of his fellow musicians to explain that if the show will probably pay tribute for its sufferers, it is going to focus on the healing and unifying power of new music.

Miranda Lambert said the world can be "united through the healing power of music", while Luke Bryan said "music helps us remember what really matters in life".

The singer said that the single feels especially meaningful amid the devastating Route 91 Harvest Festival mass shooting in Las Vegas in October 2017.

The 2018 ACM Awards air live tonight, on April 15, 2018. I know it's been a big story, but I think, I'm sure she'll be relieved to finally move on from all that stuff too.

Is there a country music couple that you love more than Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans?!

The 2018 ACM awards will be Carrie's first performance in over five months.

Over the past 13 years, Aldean has become one of country music's biggest stars, selling more than 10 million albums.

Country music superstar Carrie Underwood posted the first close-up fans have seen of her face on Instagram Sunday afternoon since injuring her face and wrist a year ago.
