Carrie Underwood will win the 2019 CMA Award for Entertainer of the Year when it is handed out on November 13th, 2019. During the show, Underwood somewhat awkwardly received a CMT Artist of the Year award and hastily delivered a short speech to a live TV audience. CMT also aired her performance of a couple of songs last night too.
During an April 2013 interview with People , Underwood admitted that although they were finally based in the same state, they still spent an enormous amount of time apart. At the time of the interview, she revealed she hadn’t seen him in a week due to her long tour schedule and his busy hockey season. Despite their separation, she was determined to keep their union afloat. “You just have to commit and make it work,” she said.
So when country megastar Carrie Underwood posted a call to action earlier this year, Molly, a 2018 Norwin graduate who already had tickets to go to Underwood’s show Saturday at PPG Paints Arena with her mom, jumped at what could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
The singer’s bassist, Mark Childers, wanted to introduce her to his friend, National Hockey League star Mike Fisher. Skeptical about a blind date with someone who lived so far away (Carrie lived in Franklin, Tennessee at the time) and fearful the encounter might be awkward, she suggested they meet backstage at one of her concerts. The casual meet-and-greet proved worthwhile—their physical chemistry was off the charts.
Overall experience was good and I do really like PPG arena and coming to Pittsburgh. All of the entertainers did well, but the complaint I have is that it was too loud at times and overpowered the singers voice. Also, there was too much time in between performances. I think it was nearly 40 minutes between Carrie and Maddie and Tae. So I know you want people to get up and buy food and drink but that is a reason why i won’t go back to her concert.
In case you’re still questioning Carrie Underwood’s devotion to Mike Fisher and their unconventional marriage, the singer told People that her husband is her top priority. However, she also mentioned that she’s ready and willing to ditch her music career if he ever “needed” her to quit.
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.

Though Underwood chatted several times throughout the night – about her family, her musical inspirations and her own amazement at her head-spinning career (It was just such a big dream” she said of her winning stint on American Idol”) – she’s perfected the art of being perfectly congenial without ever really saying much.

Her booking agency AEG also took out a full page ad in Billboard Country Update saying Hey Girlfriend, here’s our Entertainer of the Year.” Combined with other moves from the Carrie Underwood team, it’s clear a full court press has been called by anybody and everybody involved with Carrie to make this happen in 2019.

last night was my first time ever going to a concert like yours. I Had the best Time last night it was so much fun. This morning i woke up and everyone in my household said i look hung over. Thank You So Much For Making Last Night The Best Experience Of my life.
So all things considered I think Carrie will take it too as she had the most successful year in general and it’s always the face of country music in all genre events. I just feel that the hype for Carrie is huge and she deserves it.
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.

Carrie has amassed over 100 major honors, sold 64 million records worldwide, and recorded 26 #1 singles, 13 of which she co-wrote, with a catalog of songs that has been streamed nearly 3 billion times worldwide.
This initially caused a bit of discord in their relationship. Underwood explained that it was challenging for the pair to find common ground. She felt “passionately about animals,” while Fisher felt “more connected to God while out in the woods.” To make things even trickier, Underwood is also vegan. So what’s a girl to do? If your answer is: slash a hole in all four tires , nice guess. But the country singer decided to compromise instead. They agreed to avoid meat from “large-scale farms” and only serve meat that Fisher had killed.

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.
