(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that's happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)
Hey, New York. Whatever you have going on Thursday (Aug. 16), cancel it. If you have to work, it might be a good day to call in sick. If you have kids, it's probably time to get a babysitter. Because Carrie Underwood is coming to the city and would love to have you in her audience. Just answer some questions, like your favorite Underwood song, why you're such a fan and why you belong in the audience for this super-intimate concert. (That first question would be a tough call, though. "Songs Like This"? "Good Girl"? "I Know You Won't"? "Two Black Cadillacs"? "Quitter"? "We're Young and Beautiful"? I'd literally change my mind a hundred times if I was entering.) The concert is being taped for a VH1 special, so if you're camera shy, this may not be the show for you. But if it sounds like the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity it is, just send an email with all your information and your picture to Gotham Casting and they'll do the rest.
