    Hey, Aussies and UK'ers! Carrie's comin'. That's good news for country music's favorite blonde beauty.

    Underwood will head overseas this summer to perform for the first time headline concert dates in Australia and the United Kingdom in late June to coincide with the release of her new album Blown Away.

    The new CD was released May 4 in Australia, and a special UK edition will be released there on June 18. These international shows on "The Blown Away Tour" are sponsored by Olay.

    Carrie's UK show, which sold out in 90 minutes, will be held at London's prestigious Royal Albert Hall on June 21. Congrats, lady. That's a big deal.

    The star's Australia tour dates will take her to Melbourne, Tamworth, Brisbane, and Sydney, wrapping at the iconic Sydney Opera House. Carrie made her first promotional visit to Australia last summer in support of the release of the deluxe edition of Play On, which went on to reach Gold certification status in Australia.

    International tour dates on The Blown Away Tour thus far include:

    June 21 London, England Royal Albert Hall SOLD OUT!
    June 26 Melbourne, VIC Australia Palais Theatre
    June 29 Tamworth, NSW Australia Tamworth Regional Entertainment & Conference Centre
    June 30 Brisbane, QLD Australia Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC)
    July 2 Sydney, NSW Australia Sydney Opera House

    Carrie has already announced 54 arena shows in the U.S. and Canada for the fall leg of The Blown Away Tour, presented and hydrated by vitaminwater®, sponsored by Olay, and promoted by AEG Live. Special guest Hunter Hayes will open on the North American dates. Tickets will be available for The Blown Away Tour beginning Friday, May 11.

    Will you be Blown Away by Carrie Underwood?
