    Australia Bound Confirmation!

    Former American Idol winner and subsequent US country music star Carrie Underwood (pictured) is bound for Australia. Sony Music has this afternoon confirmed that the singer will step foot on our shores for the very first time to undertake a round of promotional duties next month.

    With a swag of Grammys, American Music Awards, Peoples Choice Awards and a plethora of country music gongs already to her name, Carrie will hit the local market midway through June to promote a deluxe edition of her latest album 'Play On'.

    The new version contains a bonus disc featuring all her US No.1 hits thus far, along with a cover version of Motley Crue's 'Home Sweet Home', which is previously unreleased on CD anywhere in the world.

    Carrie will spend plenty of time on the ground meeting with media, but will also take time out to see the sights and play a special showcase performance in Sydney. Naturally, she's excited to meet with her local fans.
    "I am really looking forward to my first trip to Australia," she said in a statement. "I can't wait to meet my fans down under, and hope to make some new fans too! I’ve always dreamed of playing in Australia, and hope to have time to explore some of the sights your amazing country has to offer!"

    'Play On' - the deluxe edition is set for Aussie release on Friday June 10.



    Source (VERY reliable): auspOp : pure pop love


    No new material on the deluxe edition which is disappointing for us older fans, but it's definitely a promotional voyage rather than a re-release promotions, so she needs to showcase all of her BEST material to get a hold of the radio here!

    That's what I'm SO surprised about :s there wasn't even any forewarning about this at all, seemed pretty random that like last year there were little rumors floating around a lot of the time. We hear nothing for ages, then BAM Aussie Promo on the horizon! Shame you can't make it Kenny I'll be there without a doubt, just PRAYING she doesn't do the performance on a day of my University Exams which are throughout July. Would be FUMING! Otherwise I'll be there taking pictures and videos and everything

    CMA Music Fest is the week of June 6. She is already scheduled for the Fan Club Party & The Opry on the 7th.

    I have to believe this was scheduled to happen after Mike's team was eliminated from the playoffs so he can go with her.

    I meant it in the way that, if tickets for the event (they were a tad vague as to which 'showcase' it is) are done through the OFC then I won't be able to get em :/. But I'll do the additional freaking out about how to see her perform, when we actually have a better idea what she is going to do and when.

    I'm guessing she will probably do those types of shows, Today Show, Sunrise, maybe even GNW? She's a fan of comedy from her sketches so they MIGHT get her to sing the clues for GNW like they often do...if they want her to perform, The Circle...things like those...

    A lot up in the air, can't wait to hear exactly what she'd doing

    Hey Thaifood! Yes Carrie will squeeze in the CMT's/CMA Fan Club Party first before coming down under! But what do u mean by 'this was scheduled to happen after Mike's team was eliminated from the playoffs so he can go with her.'?

    This would have been organised a while ago and if Mike didn't get knocked out, when does the season end? This promo tour isn't a last minute hook up. I'M SO EXCITED!!!

    I don't think they would have scheduled this for Carrie to go until Mike could go with her...So they scheduled for a time when either he was eliminated or the playoffs were done & the season was over. There are just about 3 weeks left before the end of the season if all the series go to 7 games. Regardless, the middle of June coincideds pretty nicely for everything to come together.
