Carrie Underwood Kicks Off The Fall Leg Of Her "Play On Tour" With A Fantastic Performance

Carrie Underwood's second leg of the Play On Tour resumed last night. Joining Carrie were Sons of Sylvia and Billy Currington and they did a great job getting the fans ready for an undoubtedly fantastic evening.

Ashley, Austin & Adam Clark, 3 brothers comprising the band Sons of Sylvia, have become permanent fixture on Carrie's Play On Tour this year. The band offers a little bit of everything in their music as they uniquely merge pop with country and some rock. Sons of Sylvia do a great job entertaining fans with their performance as they set the tone for the evening.

Billy Currington is a fantastic addition to Underwood's Tour. His solid performance had everyone on their feet from the beginning with "That's How Country Boys Roll". However, Billy didn't roll in with the standard cowboy boots for footwear, this country boy stuck to his roots & donned a pair of flip-flops. Currington played "a little bit of everything" throughout his set as well as some new songs off his recently released album Enjoy Yourself, including "Pretty Good At Drinking Beer" which of course was a crowd pleaser. "Must Be Doin' Something Right" was a strong performance that had fans singing along from the start. Currington performed his next single off Enjoy Yourself, "Let Me Down Easy", which is sure to be another hit for him. Billy closed out his set with "People Are Crazy" leaving everyone with a smile on their face and completely "enjoying themselves" as they geared up for the main event.

Carrie Underwood may have taken some time off this summer but as she rose up from the floor of the stage with hit song "Cowboy Cassanova", she was spot on. Her vocals were strong & powerful and the smile she wore throughout the evening while performing was priceless. Carrie's adoration for her fans shines through as she performs each song with all her heart & soul. During the evening, Underwood takes you to the Grand Ole Opry and performs a visual duet with Randy Travis on the classic song "I Told You So" which she ends with a stellar rendition of "How Great Thou Art". Hit after hit is performed along with scene & wadrobe changes that happen very quickly. Carrie's performance of "Change" is incredible and reminds you that your spare change can make a difference. Underwood is donating 36 cents of every ticket sold from her Tour to the Save The Children Program where she serves as an Artist Ambassador.

If you have not attended a Carrie Underwood concert, we don't want to spoil too much for you, however, that being said, she entertains from the moment the lights go out in the venue awaiting her arrival until the last note of her set and the lights come back on. Her voice is as powerful and solid as you see on TV and hear on the radio. The fall leg of her Play On Tour is of to a strong start.
