Country music entertainer Carrie Underwood has made her big return to the spotlight with "Cry Pretty"! Check out the official audio here!

Country music superstar Carrie Underwood has released her powerful new single, “Cry Pretty.” The song was co-written by the star alongside Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna, and Liz Rose.

This track gives country music fans a nice taste of her upcoming sixth studio album, which will be released via her new label home Universal Music Group Nashville. The project will follow 2015’s Storyteller, which spun off a massive tour and hit four songs— “Smoke Break,” “Heartbeat,” “Church Bells,” and “Dirty Laundry.”

On Sunday, the Oklahoman is set to perform “Cry Pretty” during the 2018 ACM Awards. This appearance will mark Underwood’s first stage performance since her accident back in November resulted in a broken wrist and facial injuries.

“Cry Pretty” Lyrics 

I’m sorry, but I’m just a girl
Not usually the kind to show my heart to the world
I’m pretty good at keeping it together
I hold my composure, for worse or for better
So I apologize if you don’t like what you see
But sometimes my emotions get the best of me
And falling apart is as human as it gets
You can’t hide it, you can’t fight what the truth is

You can pretty lie, and say it’s ok
You can pretty smile, and just walk away
Pretty much fake your way through anything
But you can’t cry pretty

Oh no you can’t dress it up in lace or rhinestones
Don’t matter if you’re in a crowd, or home all alone
Yea it’s all the same when you’re looking in the mirror
A picture of pain, so let it flow like a river

You can pretty lie, and say it’s ok
You can pretty smile, and just walk away
Pretty much fake your way through anything
But you can’t cry pretty
You can’t turn off the flood, when the dam breaks
When all your mascara is going to waste
When things get ugly, you just gotta face that you can’t cry pretty…

No you can’t…

You can’t turn off the flood, when the dam breaks
When all your mascara is going to waste
When things get ugly, you just gotta face that you can’t cry pretty…

No you can’t cry
No you can’t cry
You can’t cry, you can’t cry pretty baby
No you can’t cry pretty
