Who wants to be blown away, specifically by Carrie Underwood and her tour memorabilia? Well, you're in luck if you do.
The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville [CountryMusicHOF website] 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.
The exhibition will include costumes, instruments, microphones, set pieces and more from the six-time Grammy winner's 2012-13 Blown Away Tour, which saw a relaunch on February 13 and runs 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.
