The Carrie Underwood concert was awesome

December 5, 2010 - Pam Rodgers
I had the pleasure of attending the Carrie Underwood concert on Saturday at Wells Fargo. I really love her music and jumped at the chance to get tickets in April. I have been anticipating the concert since then, and I must say, the show did not disappoint.

Let me begin by saying that I had floor seats so they were suburb seats. Not right up at the stage but very close. I love taking photos and I was lucky enough to get an aisle seat so I could take pics without the hindrance of the people in front of me all the time. I got some great shots, I think I haven’t been through them all (I only took 1,008).

Now about the concert, Carrie is everything she seems on TV. She is nice, sweet and has one of the most powerful voices in professional music right now. Carrie sang all the songs I wanted her to sing. When she started the show with Cowboy Casanova making her entrance up through the stage on a love seat, I was literally shaking with excitement. She sang for a solid two hours with the only breaks being costume changes.

The coolest part of the show was when she came out on, as she put it, a flying blue truck. She circled the audience and got closer to the people in the back of the arena. Luckily, I was on the left side of the floor seats so I could still see her performing up above.

Carrie had some great costumes. My favorite was when she sang her song Change with a LCD video screen dress that changed images as she sang. It shows a great marriage between good old fashioned entertainment and the technology of today.

The most moving part of the show was when she sang her first single and number one hit Jesus Take the Wheel. Throughout the song, she was ascending on a circler stage in the middle of the main stage. At the end of the song when she was at the highest point, she broke out into How Great Thou Art, that had everyone screaming at the top of their lungs. It was incredible.

Her voice was great, despite the fact she has been battling a cold. It was so bad last week she had to cancel a show in Chicago, so I was a little nervous about Saturday’s show. But she sounded amazing, and I couldn’t tell anything was wrong.

I was so glad I got the opportunity to see her live. She’s is definitely someone I would suggest anyone go see, not just country music fans. I got to see first hand why she was voted ACMA’s Entertainer of the Year!
