Carrie Underwood: The Blown Away Tour Exhibition To Open June 5

Posted by Kristina Burton on 02/25/2013
The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum will explore superstar Carrie Underwood’s critically acclaimed world tour with the exhibition Carrie Underwood: The Blown Away Tour, which opens on June 5, 2013, and runs through November 10, 2013.
The exhibition will include costumes, instruments, microphones, set pieces and more from the six-time Grammy winner’s 2012-13 Blown Away Tour which is set to re-launch on February 13 and run through May 23. The 2012 leg of the Blown Away Tour entertained more than a half a million fans in 62 cities across three continents.
“Carrie Underwood’s dynamic Blown Away Tour—starring her peerless powerhouse vocals and featuring amazing special effects including a tornado— has been entertaining music fans around the globe,” said Museum Director Kyle Young. “It’s easy to see why she was Pollstar’s 2012 top female country touring artist. Touring has always been a key element connecting music artists with their fans; those interactions help forge and strengthen the artist-fan relationship, and this exhibit speaks to that. We are delighted to be able to show our visitors key elements from Carrie’s show; whether re-living their favorite memories of the ‘Blown Away’ tour, or experiencing it for the first time via our exhibition, fans will enjoy this ‘up close and personal’ look at a world-class, superstar level music tour.”
Underwood’s Blown Away Tour also has a strong philanthropic element. The American and Canadian Red Cross will receive $1 dollar from each ticket sold on the North American leg to help provide shelter, food, and emotional support for those in need after a disaster. In 2012, Underwood also donated additional proceeds from her Atlantic City and Des Moines shows to local charities.
Carrie Underwood’s current release, Blown Away, made history last year when it debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart, making the Oklahoma native only the second country artist in the 47-year history of the chart to have each of their first four albums debut at #1. Blown Away also debuted at #1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, making her only the second country artist in history to have three consecutive albums debut at #1. Blown Away became country’s best-selling digital album debut since 2010. In addition to reaching #1 on the country airplay charts, “Good Girl” and title-track, “Blown Away,” have both been certified platinum for selling more than one million digital downloads. The videos for both songs also reached #1 on CMT’s Top 20 with “Good Girl” spending a record setting 14 weeks at #1. Carrie’s current single, “Two Black Cadillacs,” has already broken the top 10 on the country charts and continues to soar.
