Underwood wraps Play On tour
Tuesday, January 4, 2011
– Carrie Underwood wrapped her 2010 headline arena tour, the "Play On Tour," Thursday night in Connecticut after performing 108 shows across the U.S. and Canada, and with 1 million fans attending since its launch last March.
Underwood was the top-ranked female country touring artist of 2010, as she was in 2008. Special guests over the course of the tour this past year included Craig Morgan, Billy Currington and Sons of Sylvia.
The tour carried 80 personnel on the road, traveling over 35,000 miles in 13 trucks and 8 buses.
During the fall leg, Underwood donated 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.

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 ...

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 ...
