Carrie’s performance and the spectacular show production are being heralded by media.
“Carrie’s always been great, but now she’s in a league of her own,” shared WTHT on-air personality Cory Garrison. “It was more than a show, it was an experience.”
The Hartford Courant reviewer stated, “Underwood’s stage show was one of the most spectacular in recent memory.”
AOL’s TheBoot.com expressed, “Leaving fans and music industry pals thoroughly awed by the perfect storm of visuals, special effects and, of course, Carrie’s amazing vocals.”
CMT.com said, “Start to finish, it will be tough for any country artist to top what Underwood is delivering on this tour.”
When Carrie performed at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles earlier this month the LA Times reported, “A spectacular production … full of dazzling costume changes, creative staging and megawatts of musical wattage.”
Later this week, Carrie and Brad Paisley will co-host the The 46th Annual CMA Awards for the fifth time, where Carrie is nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year. The CMA’s will air live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Thursday, November 1, at 9 pm AST on ABC.
In addition to her CMA nomination for Female Vocalist, Carrie is also a double-nominee for the upcoming American Music Awards, up for Favourite Female Artist – Country, as well as Favourite Album – Country, for Blown Away.
Carrie’s Blown Away album made history this spring by debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart, making Carrie only the second country artist in the 47-year history of the chart to have each of their first four albums debut at No. 1. Blown Away also debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, making Carrie only the second country artist in history to have three consecutive albums debut at No. 1.
Blown Away became country’s best-selling digital album debut since 2010 and has now sold a million copies. The album’s first two singles, “Good Girl” and “Blown Away,” both reached No. 1 status earning her a total of three weeks atop the country airplay charts in 2012, more than any other female country artist this year.
