Carrie Underwood is not done crying pretty.

Underwood performed her newest single, "Cry Pretty", which streamed more than 1.2 million times in two days and rocketed to No. 1 on twelve country's iTunes Top Song charts, and Wednesday morning she announced her next album, Cry Pretty, will be released September 14. She released the title song as the album's first single on April 11, and "Cry Pretty" is the most-added song at country radio this week.

After staying out of the spotlight since a disgusting fall at her home in November in which she broke her wrist and received more than 40 stitches in her face, the 35 year-old singer returned to the stage at Sunday night's (Apr. 15) 2018 ACM Awards in Las Vegas.

"We have a lot of songs on there that are definitely emotional and kind of soulful and real and raw", Underwood continues. The single "Cry Pretty" is a collaboration with Hillary Lindsey, Liz Rose, and Lori McKenna that she says was the flawless team to work with.

"At this point in my career, I feel stronger and more creative than ever", Underwood said in a statement.

There is no keeping Carrie Underwood down as she has a new album coming out months after her freak accident.

Cry Pretty, the album, is co-produced by Underwood along with writer/producer David Garcia. It's emotional, it's soulful, it's real, and we also have some fun on there, too. "There's so much love and care and heart that has gone into writing these songs... everything has been done in such a careful and loving way". She is happy with it and eager for fans to hear it. "Physically, I'm doing pretty darn good these days!"

Following the performance, ET caught up with Reba McEntire and Kelly Clarkson backstage, who praised Underwood for her triumphant return.

The "Blown Away" singer was encouraged by her fellow country artists and also by her fans. It's emotional. It's real.
