Today, country music's reigning princess, Carrie Underwood, officially returned from her brief sabbatical with the release of her new single, "Cry Pretty".

The only photo of her entire post-fall face appeared on December 12 when actress Adrienne Gang posted a photo of herself with Underwood.

Underwood also revealed to her fans that she's been busy making new music in the pas few months. "My wrist is nearly back to normal, about [90 percent] there ... and the docs say that last [10 percent] will come in time. I am grateful that it wasn't much, much worse".

"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". Sometimes I think things happen in order to make us slow down.

Underwood will be performing her new single, Cry Pretty, at the CMAs this weekend, where she is nominated for two awards: Female Vocalist of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year.

"Needless to say, I am beyond excited for this new album and everything that comes with it...more on that soon", says Underwood. One more run for the Cup!

The country superstar took a "hard fall" on the stairs outside her Nashville home on November 10, but didn't share details about it for weeks. "So, it's come a long way since the day we wrote it, but it's something I'm very proud of". The American Idol champion co-wrote the four-minute, 12-second track with several top songwriters including Hillary Lindsey, Liz Rose, and Lori McKenna. The singer said they created "magic" together after she joined them for a writing session. I'll spare you the gruesome details, but when I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told (her husband) Mike that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in. "It really speaks to a lot of things that have happened in the past year". It's emotional. It's real.

Underwood talked about how her emotions got the best of her during one of the most trying periods of her life.

The "American Idol" victor will also be performing the song live on TV for the first time this Sunday at the 53rd ACM Awards.
