Carrie Underwood, who had to get facial stitches after suffering a fall at her Nashville home in 2017, says the stitches made singing impossible.
In an interview with Vulture, the country music superstar said the injuries delayed her latest album, Cry Pretty, as it was “physically impossible” for her to sing with stitches on both the inside and outside of her mouth.
“I felt like the differences were more in my head than they were in anybody else’s that would listen to the things I was doing. I had wanted to be in the studio sooner than I was, actually recording these songs, but I had stitches inside my mouth, outside my mouth. It was physically impossible.”
“Going into the studio for the first time, it was a mind game: “Do I sound the same? Is my diction the same? Does my mouth move the same as it did before?” I would sing something and then look at David and be like, “Did that all come out clearly?” My m’s and b’s and p’s were kind of the issue. And he was like, “I thought it sounded great,” she said.
“Things change just as you get older; muscles change. I kind of expect I’m not always going to sound like I’m 22 coming off of American Idol. Hopefully, I get better,” Underwood added.
