Nashville – (February 27, 2013) – Six time GRAMMY winner Carrie Underwood will bring her critically acclaimed “Blown Away Tour” to AXS TV for a LIVE full concert performance from Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California on Sunday, March 3rd. Named the top female country touring artist of 2012, Underwood is currently on the second leg of the highly successful “Blown Away Tour,” which continues through May throughout the U.S., Canada, and across the pond to the UK and Ireland.
“The Blown Away Tour” Live 2013 is not Underwood’s first appearance on AXS TV. The multiple award-winning artist gave the network’s nightly live music news, trends and interview program, AXSLive, an exclusive backstage interview and live look in to “The Blown Away Tour” when it stopped at STAPLES CENTER located in the heart of the network’s home campus, L.A. LIVE:
Underwood says, “I’ve had the opportunity to play in so many wonderful cities and venues on this tour and still have many more to go, but I am so excited that AXS TV has given us the opportunity to be able to share the concert experience live with fans at home. It’s going to be a great night!”
“Carrie Underwood and AXS TV share two undeniable traits: a love for live music and passionate country music fans. I am thrilled to personally welcome Carrie to the AXS TV cadre of live LIVE artists. Fans will not be disappointed by the front row seat we give them to The Blown Away Tour on March 3rd,” said AXS TV Chairman Mark Cuban.
Concert review critics praised Carrie throughout “The Blown Away Tour’s” 2012 run…
“Carrie Underwood very well may be the most powerful vocalist in all of country music – not just right now, when she’s considered the reigning queen of the genre, but of the last decade or two.”
-Orange County Register.
“Underwood is, without question, one of her generation’s most formidable vocalists.”
-Fort Worth Star Telegram
“Underwood showed why she is one of popular music’s most widely celebrated and adored performers with brow-raising notes few can hit, much less consistently sustain. Each note on her range, belted high or softly sung, showed why she was the best in the country and continues to grow.”
