Carrie Underwood 'Blows Away' Fans
Carrie Underwood, 29, has a lot to be singing about lately — namely, the fact that her new single, "Blown Away," which she named her current tour after, is number one on country radio for the second week in a row, according to Billboard, and that she and Brad Paisley will be hosting the CMA Awards for the fifth time in a week and a half.
So how are country music crooners Underwood and Paisley planning to keep it fresh this year? "Well, there's always new songs, new artists up for nominations, new things that they have done," she told CMT, as well as "new political issues, and this is an election year and we're right before the election, so I'm sure we'll be touching on that."
Underwood's tour is also getting a lot of play. On Sunday she sang her heart out to an adoring crowd in Glendale, Ariz., opening with her own "Good Girl" and "Undo It," before launching into a cover of Randy Travis' "I Told You So." For Underwood's encore, she treated her audience to renditions of "I Know You Won't" and, of course, "Blown Away."
Almost as stunning as Underwood's voice was her ensemble, a sleeveless, shimmering purple and pink number that showed off Underwood's legs in the front; bejeweled, pink, fingerless gloves and a badass spiked bracelet.
