    Carrie Underwood brings some country magic to Glasgow as part of sixty-date Cry Pretty 360 tour
    Review
    SOUTHERN belle Carrie Underwood brought some country magic to Glasgow tonight during her sold-out show.
    Hot on the heels of the former American Idol winner’s spectacular performance at Glastonbury last week, she returned to her record breaking arena tour at the SSE Hydro.

    It was the latest gig in her mammoth Cry Pretty 360 tour tour which will see the 36-year-old play SIXTY dates.
    Punters turned up in their numbers dressed for the occasion with cowboy boots and hats. Some even went the full mile and had tassels on their jackets.
    After a bit of banter with the crowd, Carrie got straight into it and kicked off her set with a raucous rendition of new single Southbound from her latest album.
    It’s not one of her classics - yet - but was the perfect opener to get the party started.
    The very next track she had the whole crowd singing along after she burst into her popular 2009 single Cowboy Casanova.

    It was the latest gig in her mammoth Cry Pretty 360 tour
    As the night went on, she struck a perfect balance between ballad and barnstormer.
    For every song that was made for a girls’ night out, there were plenty big emotional efforts too.
    Singles like Good Girl and Last Name had the Hydro rocking while Backsliding had them swooning.
    In between she chatted to the fans and explained the thoughts behind her latest album.
    She also constantly thanked her supporters.
    Carrie said: “Some of favourite moments are in between songs when the lights go down and swear I see everybody in this room.
    “I got on my first plane journey at 21-years-old. I never thought I’d get to see a place like Glasgow.”
    And Carrie - who looked every inch country’s biggest pop star - even managed to show off her wider musical talents.
    Setlist

    1. Southbound
    2. Cowboy Casanova
    3. Good Girl
    4. Last Name
    5. Church Bells
    6. Two Black Cadillacs
    7. Blown Away
    8. Drinking Alone
    9. End Up With You
    10. Flat on the Floor
    11. Wasted
    12. Temporary Home / See You Again / I Know You Won't / Just a Dream / Dream On
    13. Jesus, Take the Wheel
    14. The Bullet
    15. Something in the Water
    16. Low
    17. Undo It
    18. The Champion
    19. Before He Cheats

    Encore
    20. Cry Pretty
    21. Love Wins
    At different stages she played guitar and piano which complimented the whole vibe perfectly.
    Perhaps the coolest moment was during her performance of Blown Away when Carrie appeared in a Fedora and performed surrounded by saxophones and smoke like a 1920s club.
    But it wasn’t always that stripped back - as she pulled out all the stops for her production values.
    The screens behind her displayed some seriously creative animated slides which fitted the theme for each song
    Arguably the highlight of the night was when she brought a young Glaswegian named Kacey on stage so replace Ludacris during her track Champion.
    The youngster smashed the performance and had the whole crowd rooting for her as she strutted around the stage with Carrie.
    After 14 years in the spotlight, it’s clear Carrie still has the southern charm that made her a reality pop star.

    And now she’s showing why she progressed to music superstar.

    We all know he got the wrong song name on the Fedora/jazzy song.......LOL

    Carrie Underwood, SSE Hydro, Glasgow review - country cliches brought to life

    Onetime American Idol brings her Cry Pretty tour to Glasgow

    by Lisa-Marie FerlaWednesday, 03 July 2019

    Carrie Underwood: great stories, flawless delivery
    “We didn’t come all the way from Nashville, Tennessee with just one fiddle,” says Carrie Underwood, halfway through her Glasgow show. The onetime American Idol turned multiple Grammy award-winning country superstar isn’t one for doing things by halves: hers is a show with a big band, big boots, big earrings and her gigantic, arena-filling voice.
    Despite hints to the contrary (Guns n Roses as her entrance music; feelgood Saturday night southern party anthem “Southbound” as the opening track) a breakneck opening streak hits all the country cliche greatest hits: good girls and casanova cowboys, jukebox visuals and duelling banjos. But Underwood’s incredible delivery - note-perfect but never anything less than passionate - fleshes out the runaway brides and murderous battered wives of her songs, turning them into characters to root for even as you’re singing along.
    “Drinking Alone” provides a change of pace, its saxophone and piano opening quickly joined by the sultry stomp of the double bass and Underwood in full jazz bar seduction mode. “End Up With You”, also from last year’s Cry Pretty, shares a similar groove, although the intimacy of its lyrics and sole spotlight on Underwood turns the song into its own kind of seduction.
    Country music, as Chrissie Rhodes of The Shires explained in her band’s opening set, is all about storytelling. For Rhodes, country music’s capacity for storytelling allows her to memorialise the father who died in her childhood every night on stage in the heart-rending “Daddy’s Little Girl”. For Underwood, it gives her a vehicle to tackle difficult topics. “The Bullet”, from Cry Pretty, may not be an Underwood original but its lyrics - which turn the passage of a bullet into an extended metaphor for the long-term damage caused by gun violence, to a visual backdrop of military graves and prayer vigils - “feel like my own”.
    A medley of older songs gives Underwood the chance to celebrate two guitarists who have performed alongside her throughout her 14-year career: the mostly acoustic “Temporary Home” spotlights her Christian faith, while “See You Again” becomes a beautiful tribute to absent friends, mobile phone torches lighting the arena and bringing a lump to the throat as the music swelled around the chorus. Tragic ballad “Just A Dream” gets a rocky update, with a snippet of Aerosmith’s “Dream On” thrown in for good measure.
    But its on the upbeat numbers that Underwood really shines: “Last Name”, “Undo It” and, of course, righteous anthem “Before He Cheats”, on which a whole arena are invited to live out their “Louisville slugger to both headlights”-style revenge fantasies. “The Champion” is another unexpected highlight, as local teenager Casey is introduced to fill in rapper Ludacris’ role - and pull off a couple of big notes of her own - while unapologetic power ballad “Cry Pretty” and “Love Wins” provide a perfect finale.
