Carrie Underwood tour - Tamworth

Five-time Grammy Award-winner Carrie Underwood will tour outside North America for the first time this month, including most capital cities of Australia.

Carrie Underwood will tour Australia on the back of her self-described 'stormier' fourth studio albumBlown Away. Released in Australia in May, the new album includes the new hit single Good Girl, which she can add to her discography along with other smash hits like Jesus, Take the Wheel, Inside Your Heaven, Wasted, All-American Girl, Just a Dream, Cowboy Casanova and Undo It.

In 2004, Carrie Underwood was the winner of the fourth season of hit US TV show American Idol with prizes including a recording contract, use of a private jet for a year and a Ford Mustang convertible. Since Underwood's claim to fame she has released four albums and performed for fans on six tours.

Joining Underwood on the Australian leg of her tour will be multi platinum singer/songwriter Damien Liath. Last year saw the release of his most triumphant album to date, the highly successful Roy - A tribute to Roy Orbison. April this year saw Leith return with Roy's anticipated follow-up Now & Then.

Leith shot to fame when he became the winner of the Network Ten hit show Australian Idol in 2006. He will be warming up the stage for Underwood in Melbourne, Tamworth and Brisbane.

Underwood will perform at The Palais Theatre in Melbourne on June 26; TRECC in Tamworth on June 29; the Convention Centre in Brisbane on June 30; and the Opera House in Sydney on July 2 and 3.
