Multi-platinum country music vocalist Carrie Underwood kicks off new tour in Manchester – Before she was making the headlines, Carrie Underwood was writing them. The reigning queen of country music once dreamed of a career as a journalist, but things changed in college when she decided to audition for a show called “American Idol,” and her life hasn’t been the same since.

A dozen or so get up to groove near the stage, as if dancing to a vintage Wurlitzer whose volume is jacked up as high as she’ll go. – Read more at Las Vegas Weekly
