While it is not a completely clear image, it is the closest photo of Carrie Underwood since the facial injury that required over 40 stitches.

In the Instagram post, the "Cry Pretty" singer is perched on a stool and crooning into a microphone while surrounded by her band.

Carried Underwood has shared the following image of her head before her operation at the Country Music Awards. "Can't wait until tomorrow night!"

Underwood had said the "freak random accident" left her "not quite looking the same".

Some Schools Reopen As Oklahoma Teacher Walkout Stretches Into Day Nine
The strike is part of a wave of actions by teachers in states that have some of the lowest per-student spending in the country. On Monday, they said they needed $50 million.

The singer has been teasing her return to the spotlight since the start of the month. It's the third photo she's shared of her face since she fell down the steps of her home in November. The black and white picture only revealed half of her face, though she has kept most of her features below her nose under wraps since November.

"First off, physically, I'm doing pretty darn good these days!" My wrist is virtually straight back to ordinary there...and also also the docs say that last 10% will probably arrive punctually. "I definitely feel more like myself than I have in a while".

"That'll be the first time that some of those artists are back in Vegas just right down the street from where the shooting happened, so it's going to be pretty emotional for some of those people like Jason Aldean", she said. She also called it a silver liner to this autumn outside her Nashville house in November that compelled her to get nearly fifty stitches. I know it's been a big story, but I think, I'm sure she'll be relieved to finally move on from all that stuff too.

The other photos of the Carrie Underwood's face were from a distance or a side profile.
