Oh no! Carrie Underwood took a hard fall on the steps outside her home Friday night.

The American Idol season 4 winner and country star was treated at the hospital for non life-threatening injuries, including a broken wrist and cuts and abrasions, according to a statement from Carrie’s spokesperson. The recovery will “take some time,” the statement added. And, “appreciates all prayers and well wishes.”

Unfortunately, the mishap came days before the Country Rising benefit concert set for Sunday November 12 at the Bridgestone arena in Nashville. Due to her injuries, the singer will be forced to sit this one out.

Carrie’s husband Mike Fisher traveled back to Nashville overnight to be with her. She has since been released from the hospital, and is resting comfortably at home.

Jason Aldean, Sam Hunt, Dierks Bentley, Chris Stapleton, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire and Keith Urban are also on the event’s lineup.

“Thanks so much for all the well wishes everybody,” Carrie tweeted Sunday morning to her fans. “I’ll be alright…might just take some time…glad I’ve got the best hubby in the world to take care of me.”

Get well soon Carrie!
