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.

Carrie Underwood made her way back to US soil after just returning home from the United Kingdom and Australia where she wrapped up a promotional tour and a successful chain of concerts on “The Blown Away Tour.” Her new album, Blown Away, was recently released on both countries and debuted at #1 on both the UK and Australian Country Charts.

Carrie’s overseas trip included her first-ever show in the United Kingdom at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall, which sold out in 90 minutes. The concert received a 4 star review from the Evening Standard as well as many other stellar reviews.

While in the UK, Carrie also performed a private show at the Dover Street Arts Club for some of the UK’s biggest media outlets and journalists, visited the Prime Minister’s residence at 10 Downing Street, and held a CD signing event for her UK fans at London’s Oxford Street HMV.  She also interviewed with various print, online, radio and television outlets including interviews with Steve Wright and Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2, as well as performances on BBC BreakfastLoose Women, and more.

The Australian leg of Carrie’s trip brought “The Blown Away Tour” to Melbourne, Tamworth, and Brisbane, wrapping at the iconic Sydney Opera House where a second show was added due to high ticket demand.

During her Australian tour, Carrie made appearances on many of the country’s high profile radio and television shows including Sunrise, the Today Show, and more.

The Blown Away Tour continues on August 12th with a show in Bowmanville, Ontario at the Boots and Hearts Country Music Festival. For more tour information, head on over to carrieunderw00d.fm.
