Carrie Underwood to play Abbotsford

Country music superstar Carrie Underwood is coming to Abbotsford.

She will perform at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre on May 23 at 7:30 p.m.

Underwood has more than 15 million albums sold worldwide, 16 number-one singles and five Grammys to her credit, all in the past eight years.

Her rise to stardom came quickly after she became America’s sweetheart in 2005, when she won the fourth season of American Idol. The show helped transform her from a shy Oklahoma girl with a great voice to a budding superstar. Since then she’s become the show’s most successful alumni.

She is currently on a tour across North America to promote her latest CD Blown Away, a 14-song collection that covers an expanse of emotional territory.

Tickets for Underwood’s performance go on sale Friday, Dec. 14 at 10 a.m. and are available at the AESC box office and abbotsfordcentre.ca.

They are also available at Abbotsford and Matsqui recreation centres, Whatcom Wine & Spirits and Sevenoaks Shopping Centre (until Jan. 15) or by phone  at 1-866-977-2372.
