Carrie Underwood Set for Walmart Soundcheck, FOX Holiday Variety Special With Adam Shankman

The promotion wheels are beginning to turn for Carrie Underwood’s next album Play On, set to be released on November 3rd.

On October 15th, a performance she filmed for Wal-mart Soundcheck, will debut on October 15. Checkout a preview HERE. She’ll perform her single “Cowboy Casanova” and other tunes from Play On.

Carrie won’t be the only Idol promoting a new album via Wal-mart this fall. There are reports that Adam Lambert, Kris Allen and Allison Iraheta will also be filming Soundchecks for Wal-mart, but no official word on that yet.

Carrie is also set to star in her own holiday variety special for FOX.

Producer, film director, choreographer and So You Think You Can Dance judge, Adam Shankman told the peeps at Good Day LA on Monday that he’s co-producing (with Nigel Lythgoe!) and directing her special. Early Monday morning, he   tweeted about it too:   “On good day la tomorrow morning. Also like 16 fox affiliates for SYTYCD, then off to shoot sketches for carrie underwood special. Zzzzzzz.”

Tomorrow, Brad Paisley is set to film a performance for the special at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, according to a fan from the, who received an email invite to the Paisley taping via his fan club. Carrie and Brad will be co-hosting the CMA awards–Carrie will also be performing–on November 11.

I’ll post more info on Carrie’s special as it becomes available.
