CARRIE Underwood has announced plans for her debut UK show at London’s Royal Albert Hall on June 21, 2012.

With 14 million album sales to her name, Carrie is a modern phenomenon and one of the biggest talents and sellers a TV show has ever produced.

A multi-platinum artist, five-time Grammy winner, Carrie has transcended expectations and the country music genre like no other and her musical vital statistics are astonishing.

Her debut album went seven times platinum and after 14 No. 1 singles she is now preparing to release her fourth album, Blown Away, as her first official UK release.

Underwood commented: “I had such an amazing time making this album. We worked really hard and the end result is a wonderful collection of diverse material.

“The album sounds bigger and more epic, expanding even more than my previous albums. I’m influenced by so many types of music, and I think you can hear that in the songs. Even the album artwork is amplified – I wanted a stronger and more fierce feel than what we’ve done in the past to take things to a new level.”

Commenting on her debut UK performance, Underwood intends to impress, saying. “It’s been a long time coming to head over to London to perform for my UK fans… I’m so excited to play there in June.

“It’s the home of some of my musical influences. I’m a huge fan of George Michael, Annie Lennox, The Rolling Stones, and of course, Adele. I want to do that tradition proud. There are so many great British artists doing well in the US at the moment; I want to show the UK another side of America.”

Tickets for the gig at the Royal Albert Hall on June 21, 2012, range from £45 to £22.50 and go on sale on Friday, April 27, at 10am.
