Seven-time Grammy Award-winning superstar Carrie Underwood, launched her new arena tour, THE CRY PRETTY TOUR 360, on Wednesday (May 1st), with a sold-out show at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina. Sponsored by CALIA, the new tour will play more than 55 arenas across the U.S. and Canada.
The superstar’s two-hour set featured songs from her critically-acclaimed album, Cry Pretty, including the title track, her recent hit single, Love Wins, and the just-released “Southbound,” which had its broadcast debut on the recent ACM Awards and is the most-added single at country radio this week. She covers numerous hits spanning her spectacular 14-year career, including new arrangements and special mash-ups created for the tour. Another highlight of the show featured the winner of an ongoing contest wherein fans submit stories about what Underwood’s hit anthem, “The Champion,” means to them for the chance to join her on stage and perform the rap originated by Ludacris on the platinum track.
Carrie takes her tour to Birmingham, Alabama on Friday (May 3rd), followed by shows in Little Rock, Arkansas (May 4th) and San Antonio, Texas (May 6th).
Last night, Carrie was also named Top Country Female Artist at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards.
