"I'm getting along so good, but for example, about three weeks ago I found out I have three cracked teeth from the accident," the 44-year-old tells People magazine.

You're no special or worse than everyone else.'"
The songstress has several more weeks to work on her recovery before she heads to Las Vegas to co-host the American Country Awards with Trace Adkins for the second year in a row. "We had a blast last year," she says, "and I plan to pull out all the stops to make sure everyone has a good time."
