Carrie Underwood Prepares to ‘Play On’ with 2010 Tour

Carrie Underwood Prepares to ‘Play On’ with 2010 Tour

Its been just over a month since Carrie Underwood hit store shelves with her latest album “Play On,” and she isn’t wasting any time putting together her tour for 2010. Underwood has penned to hit 45 cities in the spring starting on March 11 in Reading, Pennsylvania and wrapping up on May 30 in Spokane Washington. Opening support will be provided courtesy of Craig Morgan and Sons of Silva. A full listing of Carrie Underwood tour dates are outlined below.

Strangely absent from this list of dates are the major markets. No Los Angeles, no New York, no Chicago — opting for the home of the Masters (Augusta) over the heart of the South (Atlanta). She may just be catering to her country loving audience squirreled away in more back woods locales or this could signal just the start of a fuller menu slated to continue on well into 2010.

Carrie’s latest album “Play On” saw similar success to her last “Carnival Ride,” debuting at number one on Billboard’s top 200 album charts. She garnered two Grammy nominations last week for Best Country Collaboration for her work with Randy Travis on “I Told You So” as well as Best Female Vocal Country Performance for “Just a Dream.” The well certainly isn’t running dry anytime soon. She’s already collected four Grammy awards in each of the past three years. She’s come a long way from battling it out on the stage of American Idol.

Underwood has also been lighting up the trashy news feeds with her candid interview with Esquire magazine. When asked if her new track “Cowboy Cassanova” was about a certain Cowboys quarterback, she replied, “No. I would never immortalize a guy that did me wrong. I would never give him that much credit.” Guess there is no love lost between her and Romo. The boy can throw a football (well even that is debatable at times), but he sure doesn’t know how to hang on to a good woman when he has her.
