American singer-songwriter and one of the USA’s biggest stars Carrie Underwood is set to make her UK debut at the Royal Albert Hall on Thursday 21 June.
The Oklahoma-based artist rose to fame as the winner of the 4th series of American Idol and has gone on to become one of the biggest talents and sellers a TV show has ever produced.
Her 2005 debut album Some Hearts went 7 times platinum, and now 14 #1 singles and 5 Grammy Awards later, she has become American country music’s foremost sweetheart.
She now prepares herself for the launch of 4th album Blown Away. This is to be her first official UK release and is available to pre-order on Amazon now, ahead of the UK release on 18 June. The UK release will also feature 4 of Carrie’s US chart-topping hits.
Here’s a behind-the-scenes video for Good Girl, the new single from Blown Away to be released in the UK on Monday 7 May:
“It’s been a long time coming to head over to London to perform for my UK fans… I’m so excited to play there in June. It’s the home of some of my musical influences.
I’m a huge fan of George Michael, Annie Lennox, The Rolling Stones, and of course, Adele.
I want to do that tradition proud. There are so many great British artists doing well in the US at the moment; I want to show the UK another side of America.”
She has also spoken about the making of her new album:
“I had such an amazing time making this album. We worked really hard and the end result is a wonderful collection of diverse material.
The album sounds bigger and more epic, expanding even more than my previous albums.
I’m influenced by so many types of music, and I think you can hear that in the songs. Even the album artwork is amplified – I wanted a stronger and more fierce feel than what we’ve done in the past to take things to a new level.”
