Carrie Underwood Suffers Neck Injury, Speaks Out

by Jennifer Shea

Country star Carrie Underwood injured her neck somehow this month, a fact that she shared with fans on Jan. 29 through her fit52 fitness app.

“Been out a few days [with a] neck injury,” she posted to the fitness app, PopCulture reports. “Slowly stepping back in [with] swaps and modifications.”

Carrie Underwood Has Suffered Injuries Before

No details yet on how the singer hurt her neck. But she’s clearly happy to be slowly getting back to her workouts. 

Moreover, this is not the first time Underwood has injured herself. In November of 2017, right after she had hosted the CMA Awards, she fell down on the stone steps outside her house. When she did, she broke her wrist and needed many stitches in her face. 

“It’s crazy how a freak random accident can change your life,” Underwood wrote to members of her fan club, per Us Magazine. “When I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told Mike that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in.”

“I am grateful that it wasn’t much, much worse,” she added. “And I am grateful for the people in my life that have been there every step of the way.”

The Fit52 Life

Underwood rolled out the fit52 app early last year. She released it in tandem with her fitness book. The book is titled Find Your Path: Honor Your Body, Fuel Your Soul, and Get Strong with the Fit52 Life. She wrote it with help from Eve Adamson.

Her book “looks at health as an overall balanced approach to things and being good,” Underwood said to USA Today. “It’s more about what your week looks like instead of trying so hard to be super-strict every single day.”

Besides the book and the app, Underwood also has a line of fitness apparel called CALIA, which she developed with Dick’s Sporting Goods.

Underwood’s book tries to help people make good choices from a practical standpoint. Just as Underwood took a few days off to recover from her neck injury, her book also doesn’t advocate a fanatic approach of fitness at all costs.

“I feel like it’s all about practical choices, nothing in the book or in the app or anything is weird or unattainable, it’s practical,” Underwood told USA Today. “That’s what it’s all about.”
