– Carrie Underwood: All-American Girl, a spotlight exhibit featuring the merlot silk taffeta gown worn by superstar Underwood at the 2009 Academy of Country Music Awards, will open June 11 at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. Underwood won two awards at the ceremony: Entertainer of the Year and Top Female Vocalist.
The dress, created by Miami-based designer Rafael Cennamo, features 120 yards of fabric and an 8-foot-long train. Underwood wore outfit during her April 5 performance of her hit song I Told You So, written and recorded originally by Randy Travis. "It was an honor to wear such a beautiful dress during one of the most special nights of my life. I truly felt like a princess," said Underwood.
Carrie Underwood: All-American Girl, which is included with regular Museum admission, will remain open through Dec. 31.
