…just announced her 2016 tour!

Hey guys! Long time no see!!! I’ve been on a 3 week hiatus. Hard to believe it’s been 3 weeks! No real point to it. Just busy and kinda on an eternal writers block.

It’s high time that I get back in the saddle, strap on my boots, and grab my MacBook Pro.

I know Adele’s comeback is in the works, of course I didn’t sleep through that HAHA I’m proud of her, but what I want to talk about today is the comeback of Carrie Underwood!

Carrie has had a busy and exciting life as well! She just gave birth to her firstborn, Isaiah, 8 months ago!

AWWWWWW!

She took time off from music to focus on the family which I can certainly respect!

Now CU is up and raring to go on tour again with her brand new album “Storyteller” that was just released last Friday, October 23rd! I can’t wait to listen to the whole thing over and over again 😀

#Storyteller

Miss Underwood’s music has been a staple in my life ever since she won American Idol in 2005! 10 years and counting! She’s unstoppable!

According to Carrie: “I can’t wait to play new music from Storyteller for the fans. I am so blessed to have this career and get to do to the things I do, but there is nothing like that moment when I get to step onto the stage to sing and all the fans are singing along with me.”

I’m sure that’s such an electrifying feeling for a singer to hear the crowd singing back to them!!

#MassConfusion

You’ve got to think that a Nashville tour date will be added in there somewhere…otherwise: THIS IS AN OUTRAGE! I mean, she lives here full-time! Her husband plays for the NASHVILLE Predators! C’mon people! Every venue is a stone’s throw away from her driveway! LOL

Just so yah know, Easton Corbin and The Swon Brothers will be her opening acts! I’ve heard great things from those guys so I’m excited to see them on tour with her…IN NASHVILLE! I’m so sorry, but this joke never gets old HAHA

Don’t grab your torch and pitch forks just yet or boycott the Nashville Predators. Carrie HAS to play Nashville too on her tour. She knows it, we know it, and perhaps the delay will be worth the wait…back to back shows, a performance on the rooftop of Music City Center…who knows?!

Congrats Carrie on your tour & I know I’ll see you soon!

Carrie Underwood is the top earning American Idol of all time!

Standard

I’m not really in Nashville because I’m nuts about country music, but it’s artists like…

Carrie-Underwood-Wallpaper-2

…Carrie Underwood that I can’t live without!

Carrie is now becoming known in 2014 as the top earning American Idol of all time! I thought that honor went to Season 1’s winner Kelly Clarkson, but as it turns out: I’m sorely mistaken!

I have a strange connection to Carrie Underwood because I remember watching her American Idol audition on TV and I said right then and there: “She’s going to win this year!” That’s the one and only time I’ve ever picked an Idol winner from the audition so I consider it to be a special connection that CU and I share 🙂

For old time’s sake, check out Carrie’s American Idol audition here:

That seems like forever ago…

…and it was! Can you believe that Carrie Underwood won American Idol 10 YEARS ago?!?! I’m absolutely floored by that! It makes me feel old! lol

Nowadays, Carrie is 31 with so many awards under her belt and not to mention: hit songs! Those hits are going to be repackaged for Carrie’s very own greatest hits album!

carriehitsHer 1st decade of music! Congratulations girl!

Greatest Hits: Decade #1 is out TODAY with a brilliant 2 disc collection of all of Carrie’s best hits that we all know and love! 🙂

It wouldn’t be right if I didn’t mention that she is having her first child (a boy) with her wonderful hockey husband: Nashville Predators Mike Fisher!

If Music Row Girl had to choose her favorite Carrie Underwood hit song it would have to be…”Before He Cheats”. I know that’s cliché of me to say, but that song is a classic and is never going out of style!

Let’s celebrate “Before He Cheats”:

“I dug my key into the side of his pretty little souped-up 4-wheel drive…”

Now granted, everyone loves “Jesus, Take The Wheel” and so do I. However my favorite CU song of all time is “I Know You Won’t”. There’s a fun fact for you and if you don’t know that song…YouTube it now 😀

Congratulations Carrie on decade #1! I can’t wait to see what’s in store for you next!
