Underwood wraps up part one of tour

Thursday, June 24, 2010 – Carrie Underwood wrapped the first leg of her "Play On Tour" this past weekend in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada performing for nearly 400,000 fans since the launch on March 11 in Reading, Pa. Underwood nearly sold out all 54 shows throughout North America, bringing along special guests Craig Morgan and Sons of Sylvia. The "Play On Tour" will continue this fall with shows launching Sept. 25 in Portland, Ore.

During the fall leg of the tour, Underwood will donate 36 cents of every ticket sold to Save the Children's United States Programs. This initiative was inspired by the "36 cents" written in the lyrics of her album track "Change," which addresses how even the smallest bit of spare change that one might have can add up to make a difference and help "change" the world.

Underwood will perform more than 100 shows throughout the U.S. and Canada by the end of 2010.

CD reviews for Carrie Underwood

CD review - My Savior Carrie Underwood's gospel music album may not be traditional in the sense that she sings these songs the same way she heard them as a child growing up. However, on the traditional/modern country music spectrum, this album leans closer to traditional country music than just about anything Underwood's recorded. Underwood always sings well, no matter how her songs are arranged, but it's a true treat to hear that voice without much of the big production that usually accompanies it. ...
CD review - My Gift It makes logical sense that Carrie Underwood, arguably mainstream country music's best pure vocalist, would make a Christmas album. And make no mistake about it, this is a 'Christmas' album, as opposed to a 'holiday' release. These 11 tracks are nearly all spiritual in nature. Therefore, you won't hear about Santa, reindeer or even toys under the tree. The only truly secular track is "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," which is not – by a long ...
CD review - Cry Pretty Carrie Underwood's life was reading straight from the storybooks: one of the few American Idol Winners with ongoing success; a professional athlete for a husband; a beautiful baby boy. The string of great fortune turned sharply in 2017, when Underwood began the unfathomable experience of three consecutive lost pregnancies. This was atop a frightening fall at her home that ended with her face in nearly 50 stitches. Sharing these moments with her fans makes the beamingly-beautiful singer ...
