Carrie Underwood reportedly isn't afraid to go for what she really wants after returning to the spotlight for the first time since getting 40 to 50 stitches in her face last year with her new single, "Cry Pretty." According to an Entertainment Tonight insider, now that she's pretty much fully recovered from her face injury and the broken wrist she also suffered as a result of a fall, Carrie now "thinks this is the best time to go for what she really wants."
The source told the site this week, shortly after Underwood dropped "Cry Pretty" on April 11, that the mom of one is "at the top of her game" right now after a hiatus that saw her shy away from the spotlight almost completely for around six months.
According to the outlet, Carrie is no longer so focused on her injury and is instead more "excited about her upcoming musical endeavors" right now, more than two and a half years after she released her most recent album, 2015's Storyteller, which spawned hits like "Smoke Break" and "Heartbeat."
The source added that fans should probably be pretty excited about the new music Carrie will be dropping a little later this year, noting that she "strives for perfection."
