It was a rare, intimate performance from Carrie Underwood in Napa Valley, California as she headlined the Live in the Vineyard Goes Country event Wednesday night.
“Two of my favorite things, wine country and singing country music,” Carrie told the crowd at The Blue Note in Napa. Her performance was a part a three-day festival that puts artists in the middle of gorgeous wineries all throughout winemaking country.
Carrie headlined the event, performing to a crowd of over 400 people.
The Oklahoma native took the stage sharing that new music is on the way and that her new album, Cry Pretty, won’t contain as many “revenge” songs as some of her earlier albums. (e.g., “Before He Cheats”, “Two Black Cadillacs” or “Blown Away”)
Carrie also performed her new single “Cry Pretty,” the lead track from her upcoming album, which currently sits at No. 17 and rising on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
Her husband, Mike Fisher, was in the crowd to watch his wife kill it on stage. According to Carrie’s Instagram, they came out a day early with son Isaiah to tour some vineyards and have a little family time.
“Napa Valley, you are my happy place!,” she wrote. “Amazing wine, beautiful scenery, wonderful friends, new places and a yummy dinner created by @chefchiarelloand his apprentice, Isaiah Fisher! And that was just the first day here! Life is good…❤❤❤ #napavalley #winetime #happy#IMarriedUp.”
For the record, Carrie wasn’t drinking wine on stage but has admitted to One Country in the past, it is the reason she runs….So she can drink wine. Same, Carrie. Same.
