    8 can?t-miss Iowa State Fair events


    Carrie Underwood

    It was January 18, 2005, when the fourth season of American Idol premiered and fans first heard the shy Oklahoma college student singing for the first time. In less than 10 years, Carrie Underwood has sold 65 million records worldwide, scored 20 number-one singles and earned nearly 100 major accolades, including seven Grammy Awards and Rolling Stone Magazine has called her, “Female vocalist of her generation”.
    As both a vocalist and a songwriter, Underwood has proven to be extremely versatile, from up-tempo numbers to tender ballads. Her impressive repertoire of hits includes "Something in the Water," “Before He Cheats,” “All-American Girl,” “Cowboy Casanova,” “Blown Away” and her six-week, number-one breakthrough hit “Jesus, Take the Wheel.”
    Through it all, Underwood’s sheer talent, tremendous fan appeal and explosive success have earned her a towering media presence: including innumerable magazine covers, the national anthem at the 2010 Super Bowl, performances on Saturday Night Live, and appearances on Oprah Winfrey to name a few.

    Carrie Underwood: From Idol to Grandstand star

    "American Idol" has had some success stories, but Carrie Underwood's career single handedly justifies the show's existence.

    The Recording Industry Association of America recently named the singer as one of the top 5 selling artists in the history of its digital sales program.

    On Monday she returns to Des Moines to headline the Grandstand at the Iowa State Fair.

    Early Des Moines exposure

    Monday's show comes just shy of 10 years after Underwood played Wells Fargo Arena as part of the 2005 American Idols Live! Tour. The tour also included Bo Bice, Constantine Maroulis and less notable acts (remember Jessica Sierra?).

    It was the lowest attended show on the tour (around 3,600 fans), but Underwood returned to the arena as a headliner in 2012 for her Blown Away Tour. That show drew in more than 10,000 fans.

    A decade of hits

    Fans are still waiting on a follow-up to 2012's "Blown Away," but Underwood did release "Greatest Hits: Decade Number 1" last year, featuring two new songs.

    The two-disc collection featured 25 songs, including "Jesus, Take The Wheel," "Before He Cheats," "Good Girl" and many others.

    Note the "Decade Number 1" part of that title. She's only 32, so there's a good chance of several more volumes to come.

    "The Sound of Music"

    Underwood stepped into Julie Andrews shoes in 2013, performing as Maria von Trapp in NBC's live production of "The Sound of Music." The production was a big hit for NBC, prompting follow-up live performances of "Peter Pan" in 2014 and "The Wiz" later this year.

    Underwood isn't performing any Rodgers and Hammerstein songs on this tour, but the Wiz does factor in somewhat, in the form of rapper Wiz Khalifa. Underwood has been rapping a verse from Khalifa's See You Again" in her own song with the same name.

    At the California State Fair they have concerts every night of the fair. I'm trying to remember who the country artist was, but mostly it is pop music and a couple nights of something else (I know 1 night was a country artist and one was a Christian artist)

    I'd like to see Carrie start adding different songs into her setlist. "Good In Goodbye" is a song I'd like to hear her do live.
