Carrie Underwood Lands New Footwear After Tripping During Concert

I’m more of a folk music lover than a person who typically digs full-blown, big hair country, but I’m the first to admit that there’s something irresistible about Carrie Underwood. Apparently, this still holds up even when she goofily trips in five-inch heels and lands on her rear in front of thousands of people. Underwood was performing in Corpus Christi, Texas when she tripped in her shoes, hurting her foot in the process. You can check the fall out in all its glory, courtesy of Instagram, below.

The social networking world was abuzz with pictures and videos related to the event in the time after it happened Thursday evening. Most celebrities who suffer something embarrassing try to avoid the incident after it happens. Those celebrities are obviously not the 30-year-old country singer, who took the whole thing in stride and spent plenty of time responding to fans and even calling herself a klutz regarding the incident.

Calling herself a klutz might seem a little harsh, but the singer did manage to land herself in a boot due to the incident. She shared the news that her ankle isn’t broken after the big fall, along with a picture of her “new footwear.”

It looks more than a little unpleasant, but the singer is expected to continue on her regular touring schedule for her most recent album Blown Away, as if nothing happened. The singer has certainly had more successful performances in the past, but there’s something to be said about not letting an injury keep her off the stage. The singer will be back on tour tonight with a stop in Hidalgo, Texas. I’m guessing she may opt to avoid pairing long t-shirts with five-inch heels this time around, though.
