The past several months have seen Country superstar Carrie Underwood touring overseas, selling out arenas, breaking records, wowing critics, and delighting Country Music fans all over North America and beyond. After international tour stops across the Atlantic, Underwood has returned to North America playing a string of sold-out arena shows to rave reviews, continuing her wildly successful "Blown Away Tour" in support of her platinum-certified album of the same name. All 22 tour dates performed so far this year have been sell-outs, including Buffalo’s First Niagara Center, Hamilton, ON’s CoppsColiseum, Spokane’s Spokane Arena, and Fresno’s SaveMart Center, each with sold-out crowds of over 10,000 attendees. A donation of $1.00 from each ticket sold is being donated to support Red Cross disaster relief.
Underwood's "Blown Away" show in Windsor, Ontario, broke the record for the fastest sell-out to date at the WFCU Centre, and was met with record-breaking attendance as well. Since its launch in June 2012, "The Blown Away Tour" has played across the United States, Canada, the U.K., Ireland, and Australia, and will perform a total of 111 dates in less than a year before wrapping on May 23 in Abbotsford, BC, Canada.
Underwood's whirlwind schedule continued with her heading to Los Angeles to debut her new single "See You Again" on last night's episode of American Idol, the very show that launched her remarkable career back in 2005. She will soon be heading to Las Vegas to perform on Sunday night's ACM Awards telecast, having secured nominations for the coveted Female Vocalist of the Year trophy and Album of the Year for Blown Away. Tune in to the ACMs on Sunday, April 7, at 8:00 p.m. Eastern/ 7:00 Central to catch her performance and see if she wins.
