    Underwood with songwriters give night to remember

    Underwood with songwriters give night to remember

    This was not the typical concert gig for Carrie Underwood. For starters, she was seated throughout the sold-out show. She also without her touring band. No need to worry as Underwood had a few friends onstage - songwriters, who have had a hand in writing the songs that has made Underwood a superstar.

    This was the second go-round for the Country Music Association's Songwriter Series with Underwood being front and center following the highly successful outing of Kenny Chesney last year. Underwood was joined by show host Bob DiPiero, Luke Laird, Carey Barlowe, Hillary Lindsay and Brett James.

    This was your old-fashioned Nashville guitar pull, meaning that everyone was seated on a stool on the stage with each artist (except for Underwood's guitarist and, for unknown reasons, songwriter Barlow not taking lead on songs) singing a song at a time in succession of where they sat on stage.

    Each performer had a chance to introduce their songs as well.

    Underwood was the reason the gig sold out so fast - there was no doubt about it with the crowd filled with young, mainly female teens. And with good reason. Host DiPiero called out Underwood as the best singer he has ever heard.

    He just may be right. It is one thing to do the job in the studio where tricks can make the voices sound better than they really are. Underwood made it exceedingly clear she truly is a great singer. She was stellar on every song she performed, her voice soaring (Good Girl, the title track from her new disc) and laying a bit low (Temporary Home).

    The acoustic setting gave Underwood the chance to change it up a bit from her band shows, giving a different interpretation of the songs from her CDs.

    Underwood came off a bit understated, perhaps shy, in her comments introducing her songs. She tended not to amplify the origin of the songs too much

    The night proved to be a real treat. Not only was it educational to learn the where the hits came from, but the chance to hear Underwood in a totally outside-her-comfort zone type setting also proved valuable. Underwood demonstrated quite clearly she was no studio creation. And she, in part, had her stage mates to thank for her success.
    Nice to know they acknowledge Carrie's incredible talent, and "no studio creation"!

    ^^Agree. Nice to know that Carrie's natural talent is being recognized.


    Not too fond of the review on Hillary, though.

    What amazes me about when Carrie sings is that is just seems so effortless no matter how difficult the note. She has an amazing gift and I am so glad that people notice that. Thank God for Idol for finding that voice!
