Underwood goes Down Under

Sunday, May 6, 2012 – Carrie Underwood will tour Australia for the first time in June with four shows.

This comes on the heels of Underwood announcing her Blown Away tour in the U.S., which starts Sept. 14 in Manchester, N.H. and ends Dec. 22 in Sunrise, Fla.

Underwood said she was looking forward to live gigs after doing a promotional tour last year. "I talked to a lot of great people and had a lot of fun there," she said in a story in Fraser Coast Chronicle. "It's really nice to be able to go back and play shows."

"'I've worked really hard here in the U.S. and North American for the past seven years, and it seems only natural that I should branch out finally and take country music, and my country music, to a different place," Underwood said.

Underwood's Down Under tour starts at Melbourne's Palais Theatre on June 26 and plays TRECC in Tamworth and the Brisbane Entertainment Centre before finishing at the Sydney Opera House on July 2.

"Last time we came to visit we were in Sydney and Melbourne and Brisbane, so those three obviously were easy choices to say 'yeah we need to go play shows there'," Underwood said.

"Tamworth is a place I haven't ever been before. We know it's the country music capital so it seems natural, and we know Keith Urban played a show there recently and got a really great response."

Tickets go on sale Monday, May 14, at 9am through Ticketek for the Brisbane show, the Sydney Opera House, Visit Tamworth and Ticket Master for the Melbourne show.

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 ...
