    Underwood blows the doors off DCU Center


    Carrie Underwood performs at the DCU Center Wednesday.
    (T&G Staff/STEVE LANAVA)



    WORCESTER — Talk about being an overachiever. At 29, Carrie Underwood is a five-time Grammy winner, a two-time Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year, a three-time Country Music Association and ACM Female Vocalist winner and Grand Ole Opry member.

    To date, Underwood has sold more than 15 million albums and has scored 15 No. 1 country singles. Her latest, “Blown Away,” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, making her only the second country artist in history to have three consecutive albums debut on the top of the charts.

    On top of all that, Underwood is very easy on the eyes.

    With enough bluegrass banjos, pedal steel guitars, feisty fiddles and twangy vocals to keep it country (while staying consciously aware of her mainstream crossover appeal), the Oklahoma native last night set out to raise the roof off of the DCU Center and during her hour-and-45-minute, 23-song set (which included nine from her latest platinum chart-topper, "Blown Away," as well as a two-song encore) she delivered and then some.

    In fact, Underwood seems to be a better singer, a better stage performer and is even better looking than she was when her “Play On Tour” stopped two years ago at the same venue.

    With her giddy, girl-next-door wholesomeness and eager-to-please enthusiasm in overdrive, Underwood literally blasted open the front door of a virtual house (smack-dab in the middle of a tempestuous twister, no less) for the blustery opener, “Good Girl.”

    Good review but written with the typical American reviewer sarcasm - could the amazing reviewers from down under please come to the States and show these American critics how a real review is written?


    He did seem to enjoy the show

    It is indeed a great review. I liked it when he noticed the glow on Carrie that radiates inside, and calls it a stellar night. Way to go, but I laughed when he called OWT as one of Carrie's dumbest song to date, I love that song and so do my kids. I think he's an old guy.lol. That song and the segment in the concert made the show more fun.

    Yep, that is too funny

    "On top of all that, Underwood is very easy on the eyes."
    "The Bible Belt belter proved she was blessed with more than just good looks"

    Me thinks Mr Semon is smitten.

    Overall, every review has been positive. Could not ask for more. Even the sarcasm is pretty typical. He obviously did not get the whole wizzard of oz thing, but as long as he enjoyed it and speaks of how much her vocals and stage presence have improved since PO, I will ignore his snarkiness.

    I like this statement!

    Underwood began her encore in bed, singing “I Know You Won't,” which was arguably her best vocal turn of the night, complete with spine-tingling high-notes that would make Celine Dion envious.
