CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) -- Carrie Underwood is doing the same thing Jennifer Lawrence did after falling on her way to accept an Oscar. She’s getting the first laugh. Underwood went kerplunk when she start hopping backwards during a concert in Texas. She tweeted after the how, “Hey, remember that time in Corpus Christi when that girl busted her butt on stage?! Hilarious! Oh wait, that was me!” Two hours later she tweeted a photo of her leg in a boot. The caption read “Good news, it’s not broken ... AND I got some new footwear.”
