Country singer Carrie Underwood broke her wrists and suffered multiple injuries after falling down while walking outside her house in Nashville on Friday (10 November).

Underwood had to be rushed to hospital and is currently on the road to recovery. A representative of the singer told ET online, "On Friday night, Carrie Underwood took a hard fall on some steps outside her home. While there were no life-threatening injuries, she was taken to the hospital to be treated."

"She sustained multiple injuries including a broken wrist and some cuts and abrasions from the fall." The rep also revealed that the Before He Cheats singer's husband Mike Fisher rushed to her side immediately.

"Her husband was able to make it back into town that night to be with her and she was released from the hospital. Her recovery will take some time and she appreciates all prayers and well wishes," the rep added.

The American Idol winner took to Twitter to share her health update and thanked her fans for their wishes. She wrote on Twitter, "Thanks so much for all the well wishes everybody... I'll be alright... might just take some time."

She also gushed about her NFL star husband, and wrote, "Glad I've got the best hubby in the world to take care of me."

The 34-year-old was unable to perform at the Country Rising concert — benefitting victims of the Las Vegas shooting and people affected by hurricanes in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean — on Sunday, 12 November in Nashville due to her injuries.

Underwood's injury came just days after she hosted the Country Music Awards in Nashville with co-host Brad Paisley on 8 November.

During the event, she cried as she performed an emotional tribute to the more than 50 men and women who were killed after a gunman opened fire during the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival in Las Vegas on 1 October.

Underwood said in her opening monologue at the 2017 CMAs, "This has been a year marked by tragedy impacting countless lives including so many in our country music family. So tonight, we're doing to do what families do, come together, pray together, cry together, and sing together too."
