    Carrie Underwood: Blown Away Tour Exhibition Opens June 5, Country Music Hall of Fame

    CARRIE UNDERWOOD: THE BLOWN AWAY TOUR EXHIBITION TO OPEN JUNE 5 AT THE COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME AND MUSEUM
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    NASHVILLE, Tenn., February 12, 2013 - The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will explore superstar Carrie Underwood's critically acclaimed world tour with the exhibition Carrie Underwood: The Blown Away Tour, which opens on June 5, 2013, and runs through November 10, 2013.

    The exhibition will include costumes, instruments, microphones, set pieces and more from the six-time Grammy winner's 2012-13 "Blown Away Tour," which is set to re-launch on February 13 and run through May 23. The 2012 leg of "The Blown Away Tour" entertained more than a half a million fans in 62 cities across three continents.

    "Carrie Underwood's dynamic 'Blown Away Tour'-starring her peerless powerhouse vocals and featuring amazing special effects including a tornado- has been entertaining music fans around the globe," said Museum Director Kyle Young. "It's easy to see why she was Pollstar's 2012 top female country touring artist. Touring has always been a key element connecting music artists with their fans; those interactions help forge and strengthen the artist-fan relationship, and this exhibit speaks to that. We are delighted to be able to show our visitors key elements from Carrie's show; whether re-living their favorite memories of the 'Blown Away' tour, or experiencing it for the first time via our exhibition, fans will enjoy this 'up close and personal' look at a world-class, superstar level music tour."

    Underwood's "Blown Away Tour" also has a strong philanthropic element. The American and Canadian Red Cross will receive $1 dollar from each ticket sold on the North American leg to help provide shelter, food, and emotional support for those in need after a disaster. In 2012, Underwood also donated additional proceeds from her Atlantic City and Des Moines shows to local charities.

    Carrie Underwood's current release, Blown Away, made history last year when it debuted at #1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums Chart, making the Oklahoma native only the second country artist in the 47-year history of the chart to have each of their first four albums debut at #1. Blown Away also debuted at #1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, making her only the second country artist in history to have three consecutive albums debut at #1. Blown Away became country's best-selling digital album debut since 2010. In addition to reaching #1 on the country airplay charts, "Good Girl" and title-track, "Blown Away," have both been certified platinum for selling more than one million digital downloads. The videos for both songs also reached #1 on CMT's Top 20 with "Good Girl" spending a record setting 14 weeks at #1. Carrie's current single, "Two Black Cadillacs," has already broken the top 10 on the country charts and continues to soar.

    Since releasing her debut, Some Hearts, in 2005, Underwood has sold more than 15 million albums with Some Hearts, 2007's Carnival Ride, 2009's Play On and 2012's Blown Away, making her the best-selling American Idol in the U.S. She's accumulated 16 #1 singles, seven of which she co-wrote, and she became the first country artist in history and the only American Idol winner ever to achieve 10 #1 singles from her first two albums. In addition to being a six-time Grammy Award winner, Underwood is a two-time Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year, a three-time Country Music Association and ACM Female Vocalist winner, and a proud member of the Grand Ole Opry.

    we will probably get to see some of those dresses up close, which I can't wait to see! cause I'm sure she will retire some of her outfits from the last tour and pick new ones for the 2nd leg...either way I don't care, I will be excited regardless what's there! haha

    I think I have seen you say something about moving to Nashville, when exactly are you planning on moving?

    This is exciting. I am so happy for Carrie; and, of course, for us, her fans.
