Carrie Underwood to Perform at ACM Awards
Carrie Underwood sets her first appearance since her accident
Carrie Underwood has announced her return to the stage, and it’s just a few days away. The popular country singer has been absent from the spotlight after a fall near her home left her with face and wrist injuries. CBS confirmed that Underwood, a thirteen-time ACM Award winner, will perform her soon-to-be-released single live onstage during the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards. Fans of Underwood on social-media were excited to hear that the singer was well-enough to return, and the performance will most likely be one of the most talked about of the night.
The event already has an impressive lineup of performers and presenters, and fans of Underwood should set a date to hear the new track. Underwood isn’t just performing, she is also nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year as well as Vocal Event of the Year for “The Fighter” with Keith Urban.
If you need to set a reminder, The 53rd ACM Awards will be hosted by Reba McEntire this and broadcast LIVE from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 15th.
