Carrie Underwood Named Top Female Country Touring Artist of 2012

It’s no coincidence that Carrie Underwood‘s tour was titled the “Blown Away Tour,” as she blew away audiences and critics alike across the United States, the UK and Australia in 2012. The first leg of the 62 city tour wrapped on December 22, and according to Pollstar‘s Year-End chart, Underwood was the top female touring artist of the year.

Didn’t see Carrie in 2012? The tour will re-launch a second leg on February 13, 2012, sponsored by vitaminwater® and supported by Hunter Hayes. Additionally, $1 from each ticket sale will go to Red Cross Disaster to relief to provide shelter, food and emotional support for those in need.

If you already have a ticket for 2013, prepare to truly be blown away by Carrie’s show. “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,” shared the Orange County Register. Additionally,  The Fort Worth Star Telegram said, “Underwood is, without question, one of her generation’s most formidable vocalists.”
