Country music star Carrie Underwood will bring her concert tour to Wichita's Intrust Bank Arena. The concert is scheduled for Tuesday, October 19th. Underwood will be joined on tour by Billy Currington and Sons Of Sylvia.
Underwood is a five-time Grammy Award winner, a member of the Grand Ole Opry, the 2009 Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year, and three-time CMA and ACM Female Vocalist winner. Carrie Underwood has amassed more than 11 million in U.S. album sales since her debut CD in 2005, more than any other American Idol winner. Along the way, she has consistently broken new ground and became the first country artist in history to achieve twelve consecutive #1 singles.
Mercury Nashville singer/songwriter Billy Currington made his country debut in ‘03 with the Top 10 hit “Walk A Little Straighter” and the Top 5 smash “I Got A Feelin.’” He went on to duet with Shania Twain on “Party for Two.” On his second and platinum-certified album Doin’ Somethin’ Right, Currington delivered “Why, Why, Why,” which he co-wrote, and #1 hits “Good Directions” and “Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right,” the latter for which he won “Hottest Video of the Year” at the ’06 CMT Music Awards. In the fall of ’08, Currington debuted his third album Little Bit Of Everything, and he just picked up his third, fourth and fifth #1 singles consecutively, for “Don’t,” “People Are Crazy,” and “That’s How Country Boys Roll,” which he co-wrote. He’s co-written 19 of the tracks off his trio of albums and has been nominated for two Grammys and multiple CMA and ACM awards. He’s performed on The Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Good Morning America and MARTHA. He has toured with Brad Paisley, Sara Evans, Trace Adkins and Sugarland and been chosen as People magazine’s “Sexiest Man.” Currington's next single from his forthcoming fourth album is due out soon.
