Why Carrie Underwood Thought Her Career Might Really Be Over

Carrie Underwood suffered a scary fall last year and she had to get over three dozen stitches in her face, but the accident did more that affect her physically.

Carrie is now admitting she was more concerned it would impact her singing voice. She tells Vulture Magazine:

"I had wanted to be in the studio sooner than I was, actually recording these songs, but I had stitches inside my mouth, outside my mouth. It was physically impossible … Going into the studio for the first time, it was a mind game: 'Do I sound the same? Is my diction the same? Does my mouth move the same as it did before?’"

She continued: "I would sing something and then look at David [her producer] and be like, 'Did that all come out clearly?' My m’s and b’s and p’s were kind of the issue. And he was like, 'I thought it sounded great.'"

Carrie’s album Cry Pretty is out now.
