It’s been quite a bucket list month for Carrie Underwood. First, she was invited to sing with the Rolling Stones. And now, she has all the treasure from her Blown Away tour in a brand new exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville. At Tuesday’s (June 4) reception at the museum, I asked her how it felt to check off two items from her bucket list.
“Oh, my gosh. They are both so amazing,” she told me. “I just can’t believe it, and I’m trying to just go with the flow.”
Dress in all black and white — a white corset-like top, black satin cigarette pants and a pair of black and white platforms — Underwood told the intimate crowd inside the museum what she hopes the exhibit will do.
“So many of us spent so much energy and so much time and so much love into putting together the tour,” she said. “And walking by the displays, people can relive those moments, and people who never got the opportunity to get out and see us live can get a sense of what the show was like.”
But even knowing how much joy the exhibit will bring to her fans, Underwood is still genuinely humbled to have her clothes and instruments and more on display.
“I really can’t believe my stuff is hanging out there with all those incredible artifacts and things from people that are far greater than I could ever hope to be,” she said. “I’m honored, and I’m blessed.”
Underwood will perform her current single, “See You Again,” during the 2013 CMT Music Awards airing live Wednesday 8 p.m. ET/PT on CMT and CMT.com.
