    Carrie Underwood gets encore at Stadium of Fire

    Carrie Underwood gets encore at Stadium of Fire

    Country music star Carrie Underwood, who performed at Stadium of Fire in 2010, again will be headlining this year’s festivities on July 4 at LaVell Edwards Stadium.
    This year’s main lineup was announced by America’s Freedom Festival at Provo in a press conference in the Cougar Room at the stadium. In addition to Underwood, cast members of BYUtv’s sketch comedy show, “Studio C,” also will be performing, and TV star J.R. Martinez will host.
    In another big announcement, former first lady Laura Bush will appear at the Freedom Festival as the Patriotic Service’s keynote speaker.
    Stadium of Fire general public tickets go on sale Friday at 8 a.m.
    Since her big break on “American Idol,” Underwood has gone on to sell more than 15 million albums worldwide, including 18 No. 1 singles and six Grammys. She also played Maria Von Trapp in NBC’s recent live “The Sound of Music” broadcast, which ranked No. 1 in its time slot as 44 million viewers tuned in.
    For the Stadium of Fire organizers, Tuesday’s announcement was pretty unprecedented. Since the event started in 1980, only two acts — The Beach Boys and The Osmonds — have made repeat performances. The Osmonds performed each year from 1980-83, and The Beach Boys had 20 years between appearances.
    “To have someone like Carrie come back, after it’s only been four years, is pretty unusual for us,” said Paul Warner, the Freedom Festival’s executive director. “But she did such a good show and people really appreciated her music, so we thought, ‘Let’s go for it.’ And because she had a good experience, and her management team did too, they were very open when we approached them about returning to Provo.”
    Each year after the Stadium of Fire, Freedom Festival organizers mail surveys to those who attended. One of the questions asks patrons who they’d like to see perform the following year. Warner said the demand for Underwood has been overwhelming.
    “I don’t think this is the kind of thing we’d want to do regularly unless it’s somebody that really has the high popularity that Carrie does,” Warner told the Daily Herald. “I don’t think it’ll be a pattern.”
    Typically, Stadium of Fire has more than two performers, and other performers are often announced as the Freedom Festival nears. While other performers have not yet been announced, a Stadium of Fire producer confirmed that Underwood will play a longer set than previous headliners, according to event publicist Emory Cook.

    Awesome news. It's great that Carrie is continuing to perform shows despite not having any new music out to promote. I'm sure she will rock the stage! Carrie is an awesome entertainer, she keeps getting better all the time.

    I have a feeling that Carrie will drop the debut single by July 1st, in time for this show and others that her team has lined up. Why 7/1? It's the beginning of CMA eligibility period and more importantly, good spacing between debut single and album release in time for the holiday sales season.

    Good thinking, I like it! I hope you're right. Can't wait for the next era to begin.

    I would love that. However, since they probably won't, I would be very happy if we could stream it even if just audio.

    Cool I did not know that. It seems like I learn something new everytime I am on this website lol. People always complain about how Carrie does not sell out her concerts. But, it seems like all of the seats always get sold when she does festivals. I will admit that I am a huge Carrie fan, although I have never been able to make it to one of her concerts because everytime they go on sale I never have enough money at that time, always after but never then lol..
