She has now become one of the most popular female performers in country music. Her ‘girl next door’ persona has given her mass appeal across the nation making her America’s Sweetheart.
Pollstar’s Top Female Country Touring Artist of 2012, and six-time GRAMMY® winner Carrie Underwood now brings the magic of her sold-out “Blown Away Tour” to video with the release of The Blown Away Tour: LIVE. Filmed in concert in March 2013 in Ontario, California, The Blown Away Tour: LIVE features more than 20 songs, with performances of Carrie’s #1 singles, including such favorites as “Before He Cheats,” “Two Black Cadillacs,” and the album title track that inspired her tour name, “Blown Away.” The live concert was directed by Christian Lamb and produced by Domenic Potter. Alongside nearly 100 minutes of performance footage will be exclusive bonus clips offering a behind-the-scenes look into the making of the tour, including interviews with Carrie and Raj Kapoor, the tour director responsible for the large production and effects that defined the visual elements of “The Blown Away Tour.” Exclusive bonus clips were produced and directed by Todd Cassetty. A photo gallery is also included. Carrie’s remarkable “Blown Away Tour” launched in the spring of 2012 and continued through May 23, 2013, for a total of 112 dates in 110 cities, six countries, and three continents, playing for more than 1,000,000 fans and selling out every concert this year. By the numbers, the state-of-the-art stage production for the “Blown Away Tour” included 575,424 individual LED lights in 3,000 square feet of video walls and an incredible 23,063 feet of cable to generate the 172 different colors used in the show’s lighting. As part of each show, Carrie and her band flew 150 feet above the audience on a secondary stage that weighed 5,890 pounds, while CO2 and Nitrogen tanks were used during the life of the tour to create the “Blown Away” tornado effect at each performance. Since releasing her debut album in 2005, Carrie Underwood has sold over 15 million albums and charted 17 #1 singles, eight of which she co-wrote.
