Days after co-hosting the CMA Awards, Carrie Underwood took a tumble on the steps outside her home in Nashville on Friday, Nov. 10.

The 34-year-old singer suffered "multiple injuries" in the accident, including a broken wrist, according to her rep.

"On Friday night, Carrie Underwood took a hard fall on some steps outside her home," her rep said. "While there were no life-threatening injuries, she was taken to the hospital to be treated." The singer's injuries include a broken wrist and few cuts and abrasions from the fall.

The rep added that Underwood's husband and former NHL player Mike Fisher, whom she married in 2010, also flew in to be by her side Friday night and the American Idol winner was later discharged from the hospital. The rep also noted that Underwood's recovery will take some time and the singer appreciates the fans' prayers and well wishes.

Shortly after Underwood's rep released the statement, the country singer took to social media to express her gratitude to her fans and Fisher for their support.

The Tennessean pointed out that due to her injuries, the Grammy-winner was forced to cancel her performance at the Country Rising benefit concert on Sunday, Nov. 12, the proceeds from which will be donated to benefit victims of the Las Vegas shooting, as well as victims of the recent hurricanes.

The likes of George Strait, Jason Aldean, Sam Hunt, Dierks Bentley, Chris Stapleton, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire and Keith Urban were among the performers at Sunday's event.

Underwood hosted the CMA Awards on Wednesday, Nov. 8, along with fellow country superstar Brad Paisley. She also belted out an emotional rendition of "Softly and Tenderly" as she paid tribute to members of the country music industry who lost their lives in 2017, which includes Troy Gentry, Glen Campbell and Don Williams.

She also picked up a nod for female vocalist of the year and honored the victims of last month's Las Vegas shooting with Paisley at the awards show.

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