The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will launch the exhibition Carrie Underwood: The Blown Away Tour on June 5. The exhibit, which features original costumes, custom accessories, set pieces, a tribute to Carrie’s fans and much more, will run through November 10.
“Carrie Underwood’s dynamic ‘Blown Away Tour’—starring her peerless powerhouse vocals and featuring amazing special effects including a tornado— has been entertaining music fans around the globe,” Museum Director Kyle Young said. “It’s easy to see why she was Pollstar’s 2012 top female country touring artist. Touring has always been a key element connecting music artists with their fans; those interactions help forge and strengthen the artist-fan relationship, and this exhibit speaks to that.
“We are delighted to be able to show our visitors key elements from Carrie’s show,” he continued. “Whether re-living their favorite memories of the tour, or experiencing it for the first time via our exhibition, fans will enjoy this ‘up close and personal’ look at a world-class, superstar level music tour.”
The exhibit will recreate nearly a dozen vignettes from the tour. It will include one-of-a-kind gowns and other stage wear, an assortment of shoes, jewelry and accessories, colorful customized microphones made for and used by Carrie throughout each show, band members’ costumes and instruments and items from Carrie’s backstage meet-and-greet area, including gifts and signs given to Carrie by fans throughout the tour.
Carrie’s Blown Away Tour will play 112 dates by the time it wraps May 23 including shoes in the United States, Canada, the U.K., Northern Ireland and Australia.
