    The Boot - Carrie Underwood Leaves Nashville Blown Away

    Carrie Underwood Leaves Nashville Blown Away - The Boot



    Carrie Underwood's Blown Away tour touched down in Nashville last night (Sept. 23) at Bridgestone Arena, leaving fans and music industry pals thoroughly awed by the perfect storm of visuals, special effects and, of course, Carrie's amazing vocals. From the show opener, "Good Girl," to her stunning encore of "Blown Away," the Oklahoma native's voice was a consistently powerful, emotionally riveting instrument.

    The tour boasts a lot of cool bells and whistles in terms of production, but the songstress' vocal gift is never lost amongst the videos and effects. A lesser artist might seem overwhelmed by the things swirling around her (sometimes things literally swirling around), but Carrie's talent is bigger than the giant video screens and state-of-the-art production. Her voice is the anchor that gives the evening its considerable emotional punch.

    She followed "Good Girl" with "Undo It" and had the audience on its feet cheering and singing along. Next up was a stirring performance of "Wasted," a chart-topping hit from her 2005 debut album Some Hearts. Looking stunning in a dark blue dress with an asymmetrical hem and lots of bling on the bodice, CMA Entertainer of the Year nominee welcomed the crowd to the venue, and noted that she spent a lot of time there. Her husband, Mike Fisher, plays for Nashville's hockey team, the Predators. On the way into the arena that evening, she jested with her husband about Bridgestone being where their two worlds met, leading Mike to say, "You're on my turf now," however, she reminded he that she was "here first."

    Next up, Carrie shared a song that has long been one of her favorites, as she launched into a gorgeous rendition of "I Told You So," originally a hit for Randy Travis. Switching gears, she then served up "Two Black Cadillacs," one of the many highlights on the Blown Away album. Before her next number, she told the crowd, "I love this song! I hope you guys open your hearts to it and love it as much as I do." She then delivered a compelling performance of "Temporary Home," which hardly left a dry eye in the house.

    During the evening, Carrie delighted the audience with such hits as "Last Name," "All-American Girl," "Jesus, Take the Wheel," "Cowboy Casanova" and "Before He Cheats," along with liberal doses of the new album, including the Caribbean-flavored "One Way Ticket," "Nobody Ever Told You," "Do You Think About Me," "Cupid's Got a Shotgun" and "Thank God for Hometowns." She even threw in an absolutely rockin' cover of Aerosmith's "Sweet Emotion."

    Same nasty commenter's as the Billboard article. I think they just go from one article to another posting negative comments. Sorry Ann, I tried not to look but the comment was just sitting there staring at me!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this article though!

    Wow what a great review. Love the line, "but beyond the brilliance of her vocal gift, one of the most appealing things about seeing Carrie live is just the sheer joy she exudes when connecting with her audience."

    She delivered a flawless performance song after song after song, but beyond the brilliance of her vocal gift, one of the most appealing things about seeing Carrie live is just the sheer joy she exudes when connecting with her audience. It's obvious she is loving every minute of it and that feeling is contagious. It's easy to get swept away and no doubt many will as the Blown Away tour storms along.
    You cannot teach this, you have to be born with it since this is a God's given talent.

    It is pretty clear the guy is huge jerk, his user name looks like he intended to combine the C word with Underwood..."Get a rope!"
