The “Idol” rich: Carrie underwood toured this newly renovated townhouse on 18th Street. She’s the only woman who can even come close to competing with the men and since country music award shows are hardly based on merit, her win shouldn’t be controversial IMO.
That said, Vee noted that she will never forget where Stagecoach came from or the die-hard country music fans who sought out the festival in early years to catch some of the biggest names and icons within the genre. Next year, Alan Jackson will make his return to the festival. He performed on the Mane Stage during the inaugural year of the festival, alongside George Strait in 2007 Other iconic country music figures including Tanya Tucker , Marty Stuart, Neal McCoy, Pam Tillis and Shenandoah will also perform in 2020.
If Eric Church won Entertainer of the Year, it would be a public relations nightmare for country music, the CMAs, and Eric Church. Eric Church doesn’t even want Eric Church winning Entertainer of the Year. He wants to win Album of the Year. This is what his people will be lobbying for publicly, and telling everyone else to vote for Carrie Underwood as Entertainer.

Her second album, Carnival Ride , followed in 2007. It had one of the biggest opening weeks of all time by a female artist and won two Grammy Awards. Her next album, 2009’s Play On , was a commercial success led by the single ” Cowboy Casanova “. Underwood’s fourth album, Blown Away (2012), earned her a Grammy Award and was that year’s second best-selling release by a female artist. Her first compilation album (2014), a chart and sales success, spawned the Grammy Award-winning crossover single ” Something in the Water “. Her fifth album, Storyteller (2015), made her the only country artist to have all first five studio albums reach either numbers one or two on the Billboard 200 chart. With her sixth album, Cry Pretty (2018), she became the only woman to top the Billboard 200 with four country albums, and had both the biggest week for any album by a woman in 2018 and the best-selling solo female album of the year.
Only her latest album ‘Blown Away’ made it onto the UK charts yet her dedicated fan base sings along to old singles such as ‘So Small’ and ‘All-American Girl’. Carrie develops a rapport with her crowd from the offset, telling them stories behind the meaning of tracks and why they had been chosen for the setlist that evening. A special airing of ‘Leave Love Alone’ received huge applause from the baying masses.
Carrie Underwood’s accolades are nothing short of incredible. She is the first female artist to be twice named the Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of the Year. In addition to seven GRAMMY® awards, she has won seven CMA Awards, 18 CMT Music Awards, 13 American Music Awards and numerous other awards and honours. She also took home her 14th career ACM Award for Vocal Event of the Year for The Fighter,” her collaboration with Keith Urban.
I really believe Carrie will be crowned The entertainer of The Year for those in Nashville that think she is their Female Gold Star. First she will have to change into one of her Barbie Outfits, come out with her fake tears and act like she is surprised. Maybe they will have legions Reba and Dolly to present her the trophy. I do know Carrie has lots of fans, I just happen to not be among them.
Americans with Disabilities Act or ADA accessible parking is available at the Iowa Events Center by entering the lot south of Crocker Street, located next to the Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center.
Carrie Underwood was also recognized by Pollstar as the top female country touring artist for each of her headlining tours in 2008, 2010, 2012 and for 2016’s The Storyteller Tour – Stories in the Round.” Carrie topped Billboard’s Top 25 Tours of 2016 as the leading female country artist and was the leading female artist on Country Aircheck’s top country radio performers list for her success in both 2015 and 2016. Her first five studio albums, Some Hearts, Carnival Ride, Play On, Blown Away and Storyteller – are certified Platinum or multi-Platinum, each winning an American Music Award as Favorite Country Album and tallying an incredible 40 weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.
Her growth as an artist has been apparent through her six studio albums – last year’s Cry Pretty” is the impetus for this tour, which began in May and wraps on Halloween – and her comfort on stage has been a noticeable graduation as well.
Carrie is undeniably talented and she’s made some decent country music, but is that what she’s doing now? I’m not a fan of her latest singles at all. If they want to promote women in country (as I do – not for equality but just because I like their voices and perspectives), they should put Jamie Lin Wilson and Sunny Sweeney on the radio.
While Underwood performed on stage during a stop on her tour, Fisher recorded her from the stands. He shared the video of his wife on social media, accompanied by a sweet message praising Underwood for being able to balance touring with motherhood.
I have to agree with Miranda- Carrie has great legs- and she can sing- I’ve heard better renditions of How Great Thou Art though and I’m not sure that qualifies somebody for entertainer of the year in Country Music- but, I’m not sure what does either- Country Music singer should be a prerequisite though.
Underwood has arranged for a donation of $1 from each ticket sold for The Cry Pretty Tour 360 to be contributed to Danita’s Children, which provides a safe haven for abandoned and vulnerable children in Haiti, while encouraging families to stay together through their education and malnutrition programs.
But when it came time for her to share some thoughts on Carrie, the only female artist nominated for the award this year, her tone changed. Carrie Underwood performs at the KFC Yum Center on Oct. 17, 2019.
The cost for parking is $10 for cars and trucks. Large trucks, such as snow blades, cost $20. For RVs and buses, there is a $40 parking fee. There is no overnight parking available at the center and vehicles left overnight will be towed. There is street parking available throughout downtown with parking meters. Some meters have different time limits, and there may be parking restrictions. Usually, there is no parking from 4 to 6 p.m.
And with all due respect to Carrie Underwood, this might her last legitimate opportunity to win the award. She probably won’t be touring next year, and may not tour the year after. Her current singles have shown softness at radio, with Cry Pretty” topping out at #9, Love Wins” finishing at #11, and even the radio-friendly Southbound” stopping at #3 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, though it did get to #1 on Mediabase. That doesn’t mean Carrie Underwood’s run is over and she’s being put out to pasture. But her capacity to win something like Entertainer of the Year is going to continue to diminish as a new generation of artists take their place as the top entertainers of country music in the future. It’s now or never for Carrie, and her likability throughout the industry will translate into votes to make sure she can finally add this award to what will likely be a Hall of Fame career.
Best of all, she’s not just a pretty voice. Underwood has shown a gift for songwriting that few expected back in those reality TV show days. Undo It,” Backsliding” and Temporary Home” (which would be a reassuring standard at any funeral, provided you can find a singer with a similar pair of lungs) show the deft and clever touch of her pen and that of her co-writers, which is remarkable in this age of shallow mainstream country.
As a result the singer became highly acclaimed and received an intimidatingly-high number of coveted awards including Single Record of the Year for Jesus, Take the Wheel” from the Academy of Country Music, a Dove Award from the Gospel Music Association and five trophies courtesy of the Billboard Music Awards among many others. Into 2007 the singer was still releasing singles from her debut album including Wasted” and after a couple of Grammy wins the same year she issued her sophomore release Carnival Ride” in October 2007.
