Underwood opens tour

Thursday, May 2, 2019 – Carrie Underwood launched her new arena tour, The Cry Pretty Tour 360 Wednesday night with a sold-out show at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, N.C.

This is the first of more than 55 shows in the U.S. and Canada.

Underwood was joined on the all female bill by special guests Maddie & Tae and Runaway June. In addition to their own sets, both groups joined Underwood onstage for a tribute to some of the country females that have paved the way for today's artists.

Underwood's two-hour set featured songs from "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. The show featured the winner of an ongoing contest wherein fans submit stories about what Underwood's 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.
