Carrie Underwood has been laying low since her scary fall in November, but she’s still been able to keep her fans happy with some music thanks to her song “The Champion.” Now, the singer has released the powerful track’s music video! The video is mostly a montage of inspiring footage, with cut-ins of Carrie, as well as Ludacris, singing in the studio. It is unclear if the vid was filmed before or after the accident that left Carrie with 40-50 stitches in her face, but since the footage shows her recording the track in the studio, which happened months ago, it’s assumed that the footage was shot before she fell.

Most of the promotional work for “The Champion” was done in the fall, before Carrie fell outside her home, as the song served as an anthem for the NFL playoffs and Super Bowl. At the big game on Feb. 4, Carrie dropped a separate video for the track, but it was confirmed that the footage was filmed pre-accident. Fans have been waiting to get a glimpse of Carrie’s face since she wrote a lengthy blog post in January, which described the severity of her injuries from the mid-November fall. In the blog post, the American Idolwinner admitted that her face might look a bit different when she finally decided to put herself back out there.
However, after the news went viral, a fan photo surfaced of Carrie from December, and there didn’t appear to be any evidence of a major injury. Still, the 34-year-old has made a point to cover up her face in the rare selfies she’s posted over the last several months, so it seems she’s not ready for her big reveal just yet. We’re just so glad she’s okay!
