– Carrie Underwood will soon embark on her first USO tour to the Persian Gulf region. Underwood, who recently received the Country Music Association’s “Female Vocalist of the Year” Award and “Horizon” Award, will perform and meet with service members.
Specific dates of her visit were not disclosed by her publicist.
Underwood won American Idol in 2005. Her debut album, “Some Hearts,” was certified quadruple platinum and is the fastest-selling debut female country album since the introduction of the Nielsen SoundScan in 1991. “Some Hearts” will close 2006 as the best-selling country album of the year. In addition, all three singles from the CD have hit the top spot on the country music singles chart: “Jesus, Take The Wheel,” “Don’t Forget To Remember Me” and recent number one “Before He Cheats.”
The USO tour continues the group's tradition of bringing celebrities to visit troops during the holiday season. Celebrities who recently participated in USO tours include Chuck Norris, Drowning Pool, Bill Engvall, Craig Ferguson and Shinedown.
