Last week, Carrie Underwood released a signed vinyl box for her Denim and Rhinestones album. The singer who made headlines with her latest release transformed into a dazzling country chic for her new musical era, and her fans are here for it!
The 39-year-old started the rollout for her new era early in May by singing on some of the biggest music stages, from the Grammys to American Country Music Awards and Grand Ole Opry. She also granted interviews to major fashion publications, including Elle, where she played a game of Song Association.
Underwood wore a multicolored blue sleeveless skintight minidress with a matching denim cowgirl jacket. Her jacket worn halfway had fringes on the sleeves adding a dramatic flare to her ensemble and her long, blonde hair blew around her face framing her shimmery eyeshadow and glossy lips.
During her announcement, Underwood opted for a buttoned short-sleeved denim jacket worn with diamond jewelry while her hair stayed sleeked down the sides.
Underwood sat down with Kelleigh Bannen of Apple Music’s Today’s Country Music to talk about her album and detailed some of the writing processes. She explained how some of the songs on the album came spontaneously when she and her co-writers least expected it, and how others were written within short periods.
The singer played a game of song association with Elle and sang songs from her childhood, youth, and new album. Her competitive side came out during the interview as she provided more than one option for some cue words. The singer said she’s always been drawn to big voices without knowing the singers personally. Underwood scored 14/15 making her number two on the country music artists’ scoreboard after Kacey Musgraves.
Starting The Denim And Rhinestones Tour In The Fall
Underwood sang Pink Champagne on Fallon Tonight last week wearing a black shirt with a floral pink mesh sleeve decorated with black fringes. Then she tucked the top into mini black shorts peppered with strings of rhinestones and a bejeweled leather belt.
Per Rolling Stone, the singer will start a six-month-long tour alongside Jimmie Allen in October until Spring 2023. She’ll kick off in Greenville, S.C., but take a break in December before resuming in February. She confirmed this position to 11.4 million followers on Instagram last month. For now, her tour is restricted to the U.S., but she may add more international dates along the line.
