Underwood emerged from the promise of her 2005 "American Idol" win to become a true multiformat, multimedia superstar, spanning achievements in music, television and film.
"It was one step that messed everything up".
The audience gave Underwood a standing ovation as the singer closed her performance.
In a press release, Underwood said of the album, "At this point in my career, I feel stronger and more creative than ever".
There's a scar that she covers in makeup - cement and spackling paste, she jokes - but she's also been "very fortunate in the healing process".
As Inquisitr previously reported, Carrie was visibly emotional when she returned to the stage at the ACM Awards on April 15. "I was lucky that when it happened, everything was kind of shutting down in the music world and we had the holidays and stuff like that". I was anxious [my son] might be scared of me.
As revealed on Wednesday Carrie's upcoming album, Cry Pretty, is set to be released on on September 14th. In addition to co-writing the single with Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna, and Liz Rose (aka The Love Junkies), Carrie is co-producing her album with fellow writer/producer David Garcia.
Carrie Underwood has officially announced her new album. "I mean, they want me to be happy, but they've always been willing to. work with me", she recalls.
