Carrie Underwood Just Dropped the Powerful Music Video for 'Cry Pretty'

Carrie Underwood has released a music video for 'Cry Pretty,' her second music video release since her accident last November, and it's very inspiring.

Carrie Underwood fans, rejoice: On Sunday night the singer released the music video for her new single "Cry Pretty." It's the second clip she's put out since injuring her face and wrists. The first one was "The Champions," which featured vintage footage of Underwood interspersed with images of real-life champions. In "Cry Pretty," however, Underwood is up front and center.

Cutting between the country star's public and private lives, the "Cry Pretty" video shows Underwood alone at home crying in her shower and bedroom before going onstage to perform a triumphant rendition of the song in glitter tears. "You can pretty lie and say it's OK / You can pretty smile and just walk away / Pretty much fake your way through anything / But you can't cry pretty," she sings in the video.

Underwood debuted the song in April before performing it at the 2018 ACM Awards—her first public performance since the aforementioned accident. During the awards her performance garnered a standing ovation, and later on in the evening, she won Vocal Event of the Year with Keith Urban.

In December Underwood revealed in a blog post to her fan club that she'd injured her wrist and severely cut her face during a fall outside her home, requiring surgery and "between 40 and 50 stitches" on her face.

“There is also another part of the story that I haven’t been ready to talk about since I have still been living it and there has been much uncertainty as to how things will end up,” she wrote in the post, per People. “It’s crazy how a freak random accident can change your life.”

She also made some promises to her fans in the post. “I am determined to make 2018 amazing and I want to share things with you along the way,” she wrote, per People. It looks like she's doing that in spades.
