In a Nov. 12 tweet, Carrie wrote, “Thanks so much for all the well wishes, everybody. I’ll be alright, might just take some time. Glad I’ve got the best hubby in the world to take care of me.”

As previously reported, Carrie sustained cuts and abrasions, in addition to her wrist injury. Her husband Mike Fisher, who was out of town at the time, returned home overnight to care for her.

The injury forced Carrie to cancel her Nov. 12 performance at the Country Rising benefit concert in Nashville. The show raised more than $4 million for victims of recent hurricanes, as well as the victims of the Las Vegas festival shooting.

Carrie is now nominated in “Female Artist of the Year” and three other categories in the Rare Country Awards, and it’s up to you to decide the winner. Vote now at until Dec. 13. Winners will be revealed during a livestreamed concert event on Dec. 14 in Nashville.
