Sparkling and Soaring: Carrie Underwood on “The Denim & Rhinestones Tour”

The opinions expressed in this article are the writer’s own and do not reflect the views of Her Campus.

In 2005, vocalist Carrie Underwood won the fourth season of American Idol and has been on a roll ever since. With 10 successful studio albums, 8 GRAMMY® awards, 16 ACM Awards, 23 CMT Music Awards, 7 CMA Awards, and 17 American Music Awards, the Grand Ole Opry member has become one of the most successful female artists in country music history. In June of this year, Underwood released her latest album, Denim & Rhinestones, and just four months later embarked on “The Denim & Rhinestones Tour.” The 43-city tour is currently making its way across the U.S. before it wraps up in the spring of next year. From aerial stunts and various costume changes to flashy pyrotechnics and a Guns N’ Roses cover, Carrie Underwood undoubtedly knows how to put on a show.
