Carrie Underwood just scored her 27th #1 single with "Southbound" and is now releasing her next single! "Drinking Alone" is her fourth release from Cry Pretty and you may have heard her sing it when she recently stopped at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse in Cleveland for her Cry Pretty Tour 360!
Carrie will be co-hosting the 53rd Annual CMA Awards along with Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton on Wednesday, November 13th on ABC, and she is nominated for the CMA's Entertainer of the Year award!
Carrie Underwood premiered this song earlier this month at the ACM Awards (along with tour mates Maddie & Tae and Runaway June joining her for the performance), and now it is officially her next single from her album Cry Pretty! "Southbound" is a fun, upbeat song that one might call their summer anthem! What do you think, you rolling down your windows for this one?
First, we have to flashback to March 5th when Little Big Town invited Kelsea Ballerini to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry. After Kelsea's performance, Little Big Town took to the stage to close out the show and invited her back on stage to sing "Girl Crush" with them. The lyrics changed just slightly at the end, watch the moment again below:
Second flashback is this past Tuesday (April 16) when Kelsea officially became the newest and youngest member of the Opry, being inducted by Carrie Underwood. Not only did Carrie officially introduce and induct her, but they sang a duet together. Check out their cover of this Trisha Yearwood classic, "Walkaway Joe"!
Congratulations again to Kelsea Ballerini, it is quite an honor and accomplishment to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry!
