    Carrie Underwood has big plans for Blown Away Tour





    Carrie Underwood is one of the biggest artists in the U.S. and has three No. 1 album titles on the Billboard 200 to prove it, including with this year's "Blown Away." This summer, the country superstar took her music overseas and had the time of her life.



    "We did get the chance to go to London and Australia," the singer told Billboard during a press conference Tuesday at the CMA offices in Nashville. "We did one show at the Royal Albert Hall in London. We got to do five in Australia. It was a lot of fun," she said, admitting that there she had no grand illusions of what her first international concert appearances would be like.

    " I didn't know what to expect, because I've never tried to be an artist anywhere but here. I was just trying to keep an open mind, and see what there was to be seen. I didn't expect everybody to know my name and everything about me. I just wanted to go and see what we could do. I feel we made a really nice splash there, and I have plans to go back soon."



    Before she does that, however, she'll concentrate on her United States and Canadian dates on her "Blown Away" tour, which kicks off on Sept. 14 in Manchester, New Hampshire. Appearing with her as opening act will be rising star Hunter Hayes. She told reporters that fans just might see some collaborations between the two on stage.



    "That is the plan," she says. "We haven't actually tried anything yet, of course, we'll have to get in there and see what we can do, but we'll figure out something. We'll find some way to perform together. We are in music rehearsals this week, making sure everything is perfect, then we'll start our production rehearsals."



    She says the tour will be a visual treat for the fans as well. "I can't wait to see everything myself. I've seen so many computer renderings and stuff like that. I've also seen video content on my computer, so I can't wait to get in there, see how things are going to look, and all of the moving parts. We've tried really hard to make everything a great story. There are a lot of toys to play with. You've got some great technology out there now, so we're able to utilize that and make a really big show."



    Also, look for a few wardrobe changes. Underwood promises "A lot of very dramatic costume changes. No two shows will be the same as far as what I wear and when I wear it. I like to have options," she said with a smile.



    Fans who purchase tickets for the tour will also be helping out a great cause. "Every ticket sold, a dollar goes to the American Red Cross," she said. "When we're in Canada, it goes to the Canadian Red Cross, and both of them do some really great work. It seems like we've been having so many disasters lately, and it's relevant and timely, and such a great charity."



    The singer, who was at the CMA offices celebrating the chart-topping success of the recent "Good Girl" says that the title track and second single from her current album is the centerpiece behind her tour, and has made a huge impact on her personally. "The first time I heard 'Blown Away,' I loved it so much. It was different than anything I had ever heard before. No matter how many albums I make, I want them to be different and sound different, and have different kind of songs on them. That one was so dramatic, and so juicy. When we got in to record it, and do all the music stuff for it, it was just so amazing to see it come together. Seeing it from the song to the album to putting together a tour, I feel like that song has allowed me to do different things, and allows the tour to be more dramatic, and more of a juicy story. I get to tell these stories on stage - not just with my voice, but with everything that is going on around me, which is really cool."

    Great article! Seeing Carrie so excited for this tour makes me that more more excited! I wonder if Hunter will ever sing WCIS with her?

    TS: special effects used to distract from her lack of a voice. CU: used just to enhance the show. She could put on a great show acoustically. I don't think TS could.

    Exactly. The most spectacular special effect on the Blown Away Tour will be Carrie Underwood's voice.

    I love the theatrics but.... One of these days Carrie will put out an acoustic album and then have an acoustic tour....Thats when the world will get to know what an incredibly pure voice sounds like.... That's when Carrie explodes into the SUPERNOVA we all know she is..... There's not enough BELLS and WHISTLES in OKLAHOMA that can match CARRIES incredible GOD GIVEN TALENT.....

    Robin and Becca, sorry but I totally disagree with both of you, you can go on and on about vocal this and vocal that but IMO saying its ok for one aritst to have bells and whistles but it's not for another is using a double standard.

    What's been going on Chuck?

    How about that final round Rory shot at the PGA? It doesn't get much better than that.

    Carrie has always used special effects in her concerts, but when you are all done at the end of the evening the special effects were done to enable the viewer to have an enhanced experience. The blue truck brought Carrie just a little closer so people in nose bleed seats like myself actually got to glimpse her in person instead of on screen. Her effects are visual, in no way does it have any affect on her vocals. I do think sometimes people resent some of the special effects as the horse and pony show does not make up for the lack of vocal ability during her live performances. If it helps people to enjoy her performance, I do not have a problem with it.




    Sorry, I did not realize that all of us were of the same opinion, or I would not have posted....I do think it is about the kind of effects. Carrie's concerts are not over the top with effects unless you call her dress lighting up or swinging crazy.

    The point that I was making that it's ok for EVERYONE to have special effects if they want to have them and no artist should be called out for having special effects if they want to have them after all whoever the artist may be is there to put on a show to make their fans happy and not the fans of other artists happy.

    Fans of (insert artist) b!tching about this artitst doing that or doing this at their concert are NOT going anyway so why should they care what goes on there and that goes for the fans of every artist.

    Finally drying out from Isaac rolling through here over the weekend.

    Caddying has to be tough, because if you suggest one club, the player your working for thinks another is better but uses your suggestion and they come short or long it will be your fault even though you were not the one who hit the shot. lol

    I don't mind the bells & whistles if an artist can "Sing"! And I have always said that TS puts on a great show, I just wish she could actually sing!

    I don't go to Carrie's concerts because of the bells & whistles - I go because I love to hear her sing. With that being said I can't WAIT for October 13th!

    I agree! At the writer's "concert" in Boston, all of the writer's there were totally blown away by her voice! So to have an acoustic tour where everyone just gets to hear her sing - I think we will all be blown away!

    You could hear the difference when she joined in on pontoon. It made the song come alive. Mo-ter-boat-in..LOL.
