Carrie Underwood breaks wrist in a fall at home

Her injury comes just days after she hosted the CMA Awards with Brad Paisley for a tenth consecutive year.

Mike Fisher, her husband since 2010, flew home overnight to be with her, according to People.

Her injuries will reportedly prevent her from her next scheduled performance at Sunday's Country Rising Benefit Concert, The Tennessean reports.

Carrie Underwood is now back home and recovering after falling at her house earlier this weekend and suffering a broken wrist and some lacerations and cuts.

Carrie's representative reveals she was hospitalised on Friday (10Nov17) and treated for "multiple injuries", including cuts and bruises, after the accident.

As previously reported, Underwood became emotional during the Country Music Association's star-studded award extravaganza as she crooned "Softly and Tenderly" during the touching in memoriam segment.

The singer tweeted out thanks for the well wishes she received on social media.

The statement said that Underwood's recovery will "take some time" and that the singer "appreciates all prayers and well wishes".

The couple often share pics of their time at their home together with their two-and-a-half-year-old son, Isaiah.

Other country stars such as Jason Aldean, Sam Hunt, Lady Antebellum, and Reba McEntire are also set to perform at the benefit concert.

She also picked up a nod for female vocalist of the year and honored the victims of last month's Las Vegas shooting with Paisley at the awards show.

In related news, in August, Underwood's husband announced her retirement from National Hockey League.
