Carrie Underwood plays on in New York
Friday, October 23, 2009
– Carrie Underwood will head to New York City to celebrate and promote her new album "Play On," out Nov. 3. Underwood will perform on The Late Show with David Letterman on Nov. 2, perform a special outdoor concert at Lincoln Center on Good Morning America on album release day and will round out her week with a visit to Live with Regis and Kelly on Nov. 5.
Underwood will perform and co-host this year's 43rd Annual CMA Awards, airing Wednesday, Nov. 11 live from the Sommet Center in Nashville.
Underwood recorded "Play On" with producer Mark Bright, who helmed her "Carnival Ride" collection as well as 7 tracks from her 2005 album debut, "Some Hearts." The new CD's debut single, Cowboy Casanova, is the fastest rising hit of the year at country radio and had first-week sales of 110,236 digital copies. With this achievement, Underwood remains the only solo country artist this year to debut a digital single above the 100,000 mark - a feat she's accomplished twice in 2009, having also hit the figure with her recording of this past season's American Idol farewell theme, Home Sweet Home.

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. The string of great fortune turned sharply in 2017, when Underwood began the unfathomable experience of three consecutive lost pregnancies. 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 ...
