"I was walking down our steps in the middle of the night, to make a bottle, and I slipped and knocked myself unconscious," the Ex's and Oh's singer – who was forced to cancel some of her shows as a result – told Entertainment Tonight.

Revealing she is doing well in her recovery, Elle continued: "I can laugh now, because I'm doing a lot better, but it was a very intense thing. They said I got amnesia and got post-concussion syndrome.

Speaking of the support she received from her friends following the incident, Elle explained: "What I love about Nashville is the community that I haven't really had in any of the last multiple cities that I've lived in, even if I've had a bunch of friends.

"There's something beautiful about this city and my friends and my music family, they all totally gathered around me and were all so supportive and showed up for me and helped me with the baby."
