Country music star Carrie Underwood suffered multiple injuries after taking a spill outside her Nashville home. According to a representative for the 34-year-old singer, Underwood has a broken wrist and several abrasions. She was treated at a local hospital Friday night before returning home to her husband, former NHL player Mike Fischer, who traveled back to Nashville to be with her following the incident.

Underwood reached out on Twitter to thank her fans for their support:

Underwood had just wrapped up her 10th appearance as host of the CMA awards Wednesday with co-host Brad Paisley. During the show Underwood paid tribute to the victims of the Las Vegas shooting, and later performed a rendition of the gospel hymn "Softly and Tenderly" in honor of those in the country music community lost over the last year.

At the CMA awards Underwood said:

This has been a year marked by tragedy, impacting countless lives, including so many in our country music family. So tonight, we’re going to do what families do: come together, pray together, cry together, and sing together, too.

Some overzealous "fans" believed Underwood's accident was karmic retribution for a brief song she and co-host Brad Paisley sang during the CMAs.

Underwood and Paisley mocked President Trump's tweeting habits:

Following her accident, Underwood cancelled an appearance at Sunday night’s Country Rising benefit show. The concert is intended to raise money for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting, as well as hurricane victims in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and the Caribbean islands. The show's line-up includes Jason Aldean, Sam Hunt, Dierks Bentley, Chris Stapleton, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, and Keith Urban.
