Checotah native Carrie Underwood debuted her new single, “Two Black Cadillacs,” Sunday night on the 40th Anniversary American Music Awards with a spectacular performance.
The song, written by Underwood, Josh Kear and Hillary Lindsey, is the third single off her critically acclaimed album “Blown Away,” which garnered a win as Favorite Country Album. This win marks the fourth consecutive time an Underwood album has taken home the top album prize at the American Music Awards. Now a seven-time AMA winner, Underwood has been the fans’ choice in the country album category on every album she’s released, also claiming the Favorite Country Album honor for her debut “Some Hearts” in 2007, “Carnival Ride” in 2008, and “Play On” in 2010.
Underwood is bringing her highly praised “Blown Away Tour” to Tulsa’s BOK Center at 7:30 tonight with a short break for the Thanksgiving holiday between dates. The arena tour’s first leg will wrap on Dec. 22 and, as recently announced, will continue well into 2013, with 8 new shows selling out over the weekend. A $1 donation from each ticket sold on the North American dates of “The Blown Away Tour” will be given to Red Cross disaster relief.
