Underwood ends Down Under promo tour
Monday, June 20, 2011
– Carrie Underwood's trip to Australia to promote the June 10 release of "Play On: Deluxe Edition" and the Australian film release of "Soul Surfer," her big screen debut, concluded this past weekend after almost two weeks of interviews and performances.
During her visit, Underwood posed for magazines, interviewed with television programs, radio stations, print publications and online outlets, as well as delivered performances on major Australian television shows including "Dancing With the Stars" and "Sunrise."
Underwood's travel from her first destination city of Melbourne to Sydney delivered her almost straight to the "Sunrise" set via an unplanned 11-hour bus ride instead of flying due to the ash-cloud from the Chilean volcano. "I didn't want to take the chance to miss performing for my fans in Sydney, so we decided to get a bus and make the drive," said Underwood. "It also gave me an opportunity to see more of the country than I'd otherwise get to see which was very exciting."
While in Sydney, Underwood performed for an exclusive VIP audience of media and music industry professionals at the Museum of Contemporary Art. After Melbourne and Sydney, Underwood traveled to Brisbane for additional appearances, including a halftime performance at the Broncos vs. Dragons National Rugby League match, as well as a performance and fan autograph signing in downtown Brisbane.
Underwood also made time to take in some of the local sights with her band and crew, including the Melbourne Zoo and a private tour of the Sydney Opera House.

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. ...
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 ...
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 ...
