NASHVILLE, Tenn., February 12, 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. 
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.
             Since releasing her debut, Some Hearts, in 2005, Underwood has sold more than 15 million albums with Some Hearts, 2007’s Carnival Ride, 2009’s Play On and 2012’s Blown Away, making
her the best-selling American Idol in the U.S.  She’s accumulated 16 #1
singles, seven of which she co-wrote, and she became the first country
artist in history and the only American Idol winner ever to
achieve 10 #1 singles from her first two albums.  In addition to being a
six-time Grammy Award winner, Underwood is a two-time Academy of
Country Music Entertainer of the Year, a three-time Country Music
Association and ACM Female Vocalist winner, and a proud member of the
Grand Ole Opry.
