In a new interview, Carrie Underwood revealed that the facial stitches from her fall last year made it difficult to record her recently released sixth studio album, Cry Pretty.
"I had wanted to be in the studio sooner than I was, actually recording these songs," Underwood told Vulture. "But I had stitches inside my mouth, outside my mouth. It was physically impossible … Going into the studio for the first time, it was a mind game: 'Do I sound the same, Is my diction the same, Does my mouth move the same as it did before?'
"I would sing something and then look at [producer] David [Garcia] and be like, 'Did that all come out clearly?' My m’s and b’s and p’s were kind of the issue. And he was like, 'I thought it sounded great,'” she recalled.
