OFFSTAGE: Carrie Underwood Needs More Tour Tweets 

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Carrie Underwood is very excited for us to see her Blown Away tour stage, but she’s all talk and no pictures. She has only tweeted twice about the upcoming tour that starts in New Hampshire on Sept. 14. Late Monday night (Sept. 3), she wrote, “Got my first look at the full stage today. Can’t wait for you all to see it! #BlownAwayTour.” And last week, she did post one little photo of a rehearsal, saying, “Been rehearsing for #TheBlownAwayTour. 16 days to go!” But that’s it. No other hints about what we can expect. Fortunately, tourmate Hunter Hayes has been a little bit more loquacious. “Well, as most of you all I’m sure, I have an early day tomorrow. Starting rehearsals for #blownawaytour SO EXCITED. Will report with details!” and “I’m sitting here looking at the additions to the set. Or rather, The NEW and IMPROVED set. I’m so excited it’s insane …” and “First two days of rehearsals were so good! Got some killer new additions to the set! Can’t wait for y’all to hear it all.” Then, over the weekend, he wrote that Underwood’s “One Way Ticket” was playing on repeat in his head. “Seriously,” Hayes wrote. “Love that track!”
