Black Music Matters Festival

Underwood crosses the Pond

Tuesday, March 19, 2013 – Carrie Underwood took her "Blown Away Tour" across the pond this past week, performing shows and visiting with media in Ireland and the United Kingdom.

Her sold-out dates in Dublin and Belfast were not only her debut performances, but also marked her first visit to Ireland and Northern Ireland. She wrapped up her trip in London by closing the "C2C:Country To Country" Festival at the O2 Arena last night.

At the sold-out Belfast show at Waterfront Hall during St. Patrick's Day weekend, Underwood invited a couple who happen to be some of her biggest Irish fans onto the stage where the gentleman proposed to his girlfriend of 10 years. The girlfriend said yes to applause from the crowd.

Underwood and her band also met British and Irish fans while visiting some of the local sites including the London Eye, a tour of the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin, a stop at the Titanic Belfast and the oldest tavern in Belfast, White's Tavern.

Cry Pretty 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.
