Carrie Underwood announces new tour; Josh Turner opens
Monday, January 7, 2008
– Touring with Keith Urban apparently did not satisfy Carrie Underwood's touring jones because she now is launching a separate tour in February as well with Josh Turner as the opening act. The tour will consist of more than 30 shows and hit the road in February in the northeast as the "Carnival Ride Tour."
Underwood will also co-headline dates with Urban on the "Love, Pain & the whole crazy Carnival Ride Tour," starting Jan. 31.
"I'm so excited to be hitting the road and doing the full show of my music that I have always dreamt of doing," said Underwood. "I have been so fortunate to learn from so many other great artists while touring with them, and they have inspired me in so many ways. They have helped me to get to this stage of my first real headline shows, and now I finally feel ready. I can't wait to travel throughout the U.S. and Canada and see all my fans."
The first round of "Carnival Ride Tour" dates go on sale this Saturday, Jan. 12, with more dates to be announced soon.

Feb. 20 Amherst, MA / Mullins Center
Feb. 22 Pittsburgh / Petersen Events Center

Therefore, you won't hear about Santa, reindeer or even toys under the tree.
The only truly secular track is "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," which is not – by a long ...
Carrie Underwood's life was reading straight from the storybooks: one of the few American Idol Winners with ongoing success; a professional athlete for a husband; a beautiful baby boy.

This was atop a frightening fall at her home that ended with her face in nearly 50 stitches. Sharing these moments with her fans makes the beamingly-beautiful singer ...
