Carrie Underwood has released a new power ballad called, Cry Pretty. She explains, “The title refers to when emotions take over and you just can’t hold them back. It really speaks to a lot of things that have happened in the past year and I hope when you hear it, you can relate those feelings to those times in your life. It’s emotional. It’s real. And it ROCKS!”

The country-star suffered a freak accident late last year, which left her with between 40-50 stitches in her face and a broken wrist. In a letter to her fans she writes, “My wrist is almost back to normal, about 90% there… and the docs say that last 10% will come in time,” the letter said. “And my face has been healing pretty nicely as well. I definitely feel more like myself than I have in a while.”
