Carrie Underwood was forced to cancel a major performance after sustaining injuries from a fall.

The country superstar reportedly slipped on the steps of her home on Friday, Nov. 10, and broke her wrist. As a result, she wasn’t able to perform at the Country Rising benefit concert at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Sunday night.

The Tennessean reports that Underwood went to the hospital for treatment for her wrist as well as some scratches, cuts and bruises.

The singer tweeted out thanks for the well wishes she received on social media. She reassured fans, “I’ve got the best hubby in the world to take care of me.”

The hospital treated Underwood for her injuries and released her the same evening. Her husband, hockey player Mike Fisher, was able to make it into town to be with her.

Many of Underwood’s friends and fellow country stars shared well-wishes for the star via social media. “Feel better soon! Sending positives thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery,” Randy Travis told Underwood through Twitter.

Last week, Underwood earned headlines for her touching tribute to the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting victims at the 2017 CMA Awards.
