Carrie Underwood’s injury keeps her from Hall of Fame induction

Carrie Underwood’s injured wrist has cost her a place in the Oklahoma Hall Of Fame.
The singer was set to be inducted alongside country stars like Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton on Thursday (16Nov17), but she can no longer make it to the ceremony, so she’ll have to forfeit the honour.
“We are certain that she will be considered for future induction,” Shannon L. Rich, the president of the Oklahoma Hall of Fame tells the Oklahoman.
Olympian Shannon Miller and civil rights activist Ada Lois Sipuel Fisher, will be among the famous Oklahomans inducted into the state Hall of Fame on Thursday.
Carrie suffered an injury at home and underwent surgery on Tuesday (14Nov17).
Updating fans on Wednesday via Twitter, she wrote: “I just wanted to let everyone know that I’m doing great. Had surgery on my wrist yesterday & all went well… even though I’ll be setting off airport metal detectors from now on… I’m so thankful for the doctors, nurses, family & friends who’ve been taking such great care of me.”
The injury prompted the singer to withdraw from performing at Sunday night’s (12Nov17) Country Rising benefit gig in Nashville, where Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Keith Urban, Little Big Town, and Lady Antebellum, among others, raised funds for the ongoing hurricane relief effort and those affected by the shooting massacre at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas last month (Oct17).
