I absolutely adore Carrie's hair like that. She's stunning. Obviously, she's stunning with any hairstyle, but this one... wow!
I wonder if she'll return to extensions for the tour. My guess is yes.
^ thank goodness she ditched the extensions on tour!! I really hope this means they are gone forever.
Carrie has outgrown them so to speak.
I am liking her short hair. She is so stunning.
Carrie surprised a family at her show in Philadelphia last night (February 22).

As part of Carnival Cruise Line’s Honor. Family. Fun. initiative in partnership country music superstar Carrie Underwood and the military assistance organization Operation Homefront, the seven-time Grammy winner hosted a special meet and greet for military families prior to her show last night at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
Underwood was joined by Carnival President Christine Duffy and Operation Homefront Board Member Marty Hauser as she surprised the Martin family with an opportunity to attend a private, invitation-only concert for military families aboard Carnival’s newest, largest and most innovative ship, Carnival Vista, when the vessel makes its U.S. debut in New York in November 2016.
The meet and greet was one of 10 pre-concert opportunities that Carnival, Underwood and Operation Homefront will host for military families in various cities across the U.S.
Additionally, Carnival is selling special commemorative Honor. Family. Fun. dog tags aboard its ships and at all of the stops along Underwood’s The Storyteller tour with proceeds benefiting Operation Homefront.
Currently under construction at the Fincantieri shipyard in Italy, Carnival Vista is set to debut May 1 in Europe and will offer a number of exciting and unique features, including the RedFrog Pub and Brewery, the first IMAX Theater on a cruise ship, the new Family Harbor staterooms and suites and a one-of-a-kind aerial attraction called SkyRide.

The “Honor. Family. Fun.” event is part of a partnership launched earlier this year by Underwood, Carnival Cruise Lines and Operation Homefront to raise awareness and funds for military families. Underwood is meeting with families in 10 cities and will perform a free concert for hundreds of military families portside aboard Carnival’s newest ship, Carnival Vista, on Nov. 4.

Carrie Underwood Invites Military Family to Cruise Ship Show
Carrie Underwood is giving back to military families.
During a recent tour stop in St. Louis, the singer met a couple before her show and gave them the surprise of a lifetime when she invited them to come to New York this November to watch her perform on the Carnival Vista cruise ship.
“It seemed such a great opportunity to say ‘thank you,’” Underwood tells Fox. “I’m lucky to be a part of country music and country music has always done a good job of honoring our military.”
The couple, Theresa and Mario Jones, are both veterans and met while in the military. A car accident left Mario medically retired, and the couple and their three children reached out to Operation Homefront for help as they were having a difficult time financially, living paycheck to paycheck.
“They’ve done so much for us. They helped turn our life around,” Mario says. “It’s so many people giving back and it feels amazing.”
Operation Homefront is a nonprofit organization that helps struggling military families. The nonprofit recently partnered with Carnival Cruise Lines and Underwood, who is making time to meet with military families throughout 10 stops on her Storyteller Tour.
“Military families represent a cornerstone of our country and we are honored by the opportunity to partner with Carrie and Operation Homefront to bring much needed awareness and aid to our troops and their loved ones,” explains Christine Duffy, President of Carnival Cruise Line at a press event. “The partnership will bring to life many of the heartwarming stories our troops have to share while in turn bringing them some fun along the way.”
In support of Carnival’s ‘Honor. Family. Fun.’ program, Underwood will host a concert to honor military families on Nov. 4 in the Port of New York City aboard the new cruise ship Carnival Vista. She will also perform aboard select Carnival ships in 2017. For more information and to donate to the program, visit Carnival.com.
