While the world seems to cave in around us, Americans are continuing to not let the fear and threats of hatred and violence stop them from seeing their favorite artists out on tour. Indeed, live music venues remain a place to come together in a shared love of music, artists and summer.
And for country music fans, nothing is more important than getting out and seeing their favorite artists perform this summer. Can you guess one of those artists that seemingly everyone is seeing?
Well, that would be Ms. Carrie Underwood.
In a brand-new report released by “Billboard,” Carrie Underwood joins music acts such as Bruce Springsteen, Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift as one of the top 10 highest grossing tours of 2016 so far. The report states that Carrie’s tour has made nearly $30 million thus far and has played in front of nearly a half of million people.
And heck knows that this is just for the beginning for Carrie. Currently playing a barrage of fair and festival dates throughout the summer, the country superstar will jump on the fall leg of her The Storyteller Tour on Aug. 31 in Anchorage, Alaska and continue on to high-profile stops such as at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, Bridgestone Arena in Nashville and Madison Square Garden in New York City.
