“We had the best time on ‘The Storyteller Tour’ performing for the fans last year,” said the reigning CMA Female Vocalist of the Year. “The amazing production and 360-degree stage let me get closer to them than ever before.  I saw so many of their social media posts asking for a release of the show and we knew we had to do it.  I’m so happy to get this out and relive the most fun I’ve ever had on tour!”

“The Storyteller Tour – Stories in the Round” received rave reviews for its massive in-the-round 360-degree stage production as well as Carrie’s command of it.

“…the in-the-round setting provides each concert goer with the best experience possible. Simpler still is the storytelling aspect of the show and country music’s reliance on conveying memorable stories in song.”-RollingStoneCountry.com

“The most stunning part of the production however, remains Underwood’s voice, strong and nuanced.” – The Boston Globe

“Lasers and swaying spotlights and fireworks and explosions all added to the spectacle. But make no mistake, Underwood was the star of the show.” – Florida Times-Union

“…one of the strongest and most engaging performers in today’s music.” – Pittsburgh Tribune

“Carrie has developed a fantastic stage show … that manages to be both visually dazzling and intimate at the same time.”- Country music historian Bob Oermann

“Up-tempo or ballad, Underwood makes sure that every song has its moment – and it’s clear that now is hers.” – The Tennessean

The tour travelled over 50,000 miles among 18 trucks and 8 buses across North America. Each show consisted of 112 automation cues controlling all elements of the 150 foot-long in-the-round stage including 7 stage elevators, 3 rings of video screen, a revolving central stage, and mirror ball, through 56 axes of motion.

About Carrie Underwood:

Carrie Underwood emerged from the promise of her 2005 American Idol win to become a true multi-format, multi-media superstar, spanning achievements in music, television, and film. A seven-time GRAMMY® Award winner, she 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 have been streamed more than 2.6 billion times worldwide. The first female artist to be twice named the Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of the Year, Underwood was 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 also 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. All five studio albums, Some Hearts, Carnival Ride, Play On, Blown Away, and Storyteller – are certified Platinum or multi-Platinum, and each an American Music Awards winner as Favorite Country Album – and tallied an incredible 40 weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.  The RIAA’s highest certified country album artist to debut this century, Underwood also holds the distinction of the highest album certification of any country artist to emerge since 2000 with the 8x Multi-Platinum success of her 2005 debut, Some Hearts.  She is the all-time Top Country Artist (male or female) on RIAA’s Digital Single Ranking, also placing her among the Top 5 females in the history of RIAA’s Digital Single Program across all genres.  In December of 2014, she released her Platinum-certified Greatest Hits: Decade #1, which produced two new #1 hits co-written by Underwood, including the RIAA-Platinum, GRAMMY-winning “Something in the Water.” The Grand Ole Opry member demonstrated her creative diversity in 2013 starring as Maria von Trapp in NBC’s three-hour holiday blockbuster, the Emmy®-winning The Sound of Music Live!, whose airings attracted 44 million viewers. The reigning CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, Underwood claimed her fourth win in the category amid the ongoing success of her chart-topping platinum fifth studio album, Storyteller, which produced four #1 hits. This fall Underwood has returned for the fifth season as the voice of primetime television’s #1 program, Sunday Night Football, and in November she will co-host the CMA Awards for a tenth consecutive year where she is again nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year.
