Carrie Underwood Takes a Stiletto-Fueled Stage Tumble

The country star wears a protective foot brace after 'klutz' move sends her falling


Blame it on some high and hot footwear.

Carrie Underwood was a good sport after taking a nasty stage tumble on Thursday night in Corpus Christi, Texas, where she was performing in concert.

The American Idol alum, 30, Tweeted photos of her perfectly pedicured foot in a black walking brace as she made fun of the mishap, which occurred when her five-in. heels caught the hem of an extra-large shirt, sending her to her backside mid-song. Her fall comes just a week after her husband weathered his own strange foible – a chipmunk bite.

“Hey, remember that time in Corpus Christi when that girl busted her butt on stage?! Hilarious. Oh wait, that was me!” Underwood later Tweeted, hashtagging her message with the word “klutz” as she linked to an Instagram photo sent to her by a fan right before her spill.

The pet-loving Underwood, who is set to host the CMA Awards on Nov. 6 in Nashville with Brad Paisley, added that she and her aching foot were recovering just fine. “Good news, it’s not broken AND I got some new footwear,” she Tweeted.

But even as the six-time Grammy winner made fun of her spill, at least one of her Twitter followers praised her show-must-go-on moxie as she completed her song seated on stage. “@carrieunderwood didn’t fall tonight. She attacked the floor … Wearing five-inch heels. She’s got mad ninja skills,” the fan Tweeted with wishes for Underwood to feel better.

Underwood was expected to return to the stage Friday night on her next tour stop in Hidalgo, Texas.
