Carrie Underwood gears up for comeback at CMAs after injury

Carrie Underwood 53RD ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS

Five months after the fall that left her with "between 40-50 stitches" in her face, and "not quite looking the same", Carrie Underwood posted a close-up selfie to Instagram on Saturday night, in advance of her Sunday performance at the Academy of Country Music Awards.

Underwood, 35, has been keeping fans posted during her recovery writing on her blog this week that she was "doing pretty darn good".

She says anything can happen, but she's a little more confident with who deserves Male Vocalist of the Year.

Clarkson will duet with mother-in-law Reba McEntire, who is hosting the show at 8 p.m. Sunday on CBS.

The ACM show will feature other collaborations: Kane Brown and Lauren Alaina on "What Ifs", Keith Urban and Julia Michaels on Urban's new "Coming Home", and Bebe Rexha with Florida Georgia Line on "Meant to Be".

According to Billboard.com, the list includes Kelsea Ballerini, Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire, Maren Morris and Carrie Underwood. Chris Stapleton has been nominated for the Entertainer of the Year, and leads the pack with eight nominations. "And there was a moment right before we went on where Jennifer was like, wearing Sara Evans' shoes or something-something didn't work out, they didn't fit, so she just kicked them off and went barefoot".


Rhett's song Die a Happy Man also won the Song of the Year Award. Also, according to ChrisYoung.com, Young was invited to perform at the Grand Ole Opry.

► Make it easy to keep up to date with more stories like this. If she wins, it will be her ninth consecutive win in this category; she is the current record holder for most consecutive wins in the Female Vocalist of the Year category.

The Academy of Country Music Awards are an awards presentation that honors the top performers and accomplishments in country music.

The victor in this category could easily be Tim and Faith McGraw.

Where are the Academy of Country Music Awards 2018?

Tim McGraw even hits a couple of high notes on some of the tracks such as the song, "Rest Of Our Lives".
