Carrie Underwood gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at her Denim & Rhinestones Tour earlier this week when she shared a video that included backstage clips and moments from the massive arena tour. 

The clip highlights many exciting moments of Underwood’s show, including her epic drum solo, aerial performances, and more. It also gives fans a bit of an inside look at what goes on behind the scenes of the Entertainer of the Year-worthy concert.  

Underwood’s many outfit changes are also showcased throughout the video. 

“Only a few more weeks and WE ARE BACK for Leg 2! MIAMI, here we come…LET’S GO,” the eight-time GRAMMY winner captioned the post. 

The Denim & Rhinestones Tour launched in the fall. After a brief hiatus for the holidays, the trek returns on Thursday, February 2 at FTX Arena in Miami, Florida. The next leg of the tour also includes stops in Tampa, Florida, Atlanta, Georgia, New York, New York, and Nashville, Tennessee.

Joining Underwood on the tour is fellow country hitmaker Jimmie Allen.  

“I felt like he made sense,” Underwood previously explained to Country Countdown USA of her tour mate. “He embodies denim & rhinestones, almost as much as I did.”

The Denim & Rhinestone Tour will wrap up on March 17 in Seattle, Washington. 

Return To Vegas

After her headlining run, Underwood is set to return to Las Vegas for her wildly successful REFLECTION: The Las Vegas Residency at Resorts World Theatre.

The superstar unveiled plans for 18 new dates in Las Vegas beginning June 21.   

“I’m thrilled to be returning to Resorts World Las Vegas next summer,” says Underwood.  “REFLECTION is a show I’m so proud of and have so much fun performing.  I love being out on the road with THE DENIM & RHINESTONES TOUR and look forward to returning to Vegas once that wraps, as it has become our home away from home where we get to play to audiences from all over the world.”

Underwood was the very first artist to grace the Resorts World Theatre stage when she made her debut at the 5,000-seat theatre with a sold-out show on Dec. 1, 2021. With several costume changes and state of the art production, REFLECTION quickly became a must-see Las Vegas residency

The Oklahoma native’s return to the road comes after she closed out 2022 as Billboard’s Top Country Female 2022, Country Aircheck’s #1 Top Female of the Year, and Mediabase’s Most Played Female Country Artist this year. 

Last year, she released her ninth studio album, Denim & Rhinestones, to rave reviews.

The latest single off the project, “Hate My Heart,” is making its way up the charts at country radio now. Underwood co-wrote the song alongside Hillary Lindsey, David Garcia, and HARDY.

Underwood recently brought the song to life with a music video that explores life after a breakup. 

Directed by Shaun Silva, the clip opens with Underwood and four of her friends breaking up with their significant others. As they slam the door on their respective failed relationships, the friends turn to each other to cope via a group text thread.

After the Oklahoma native and her friends find themselves single again, they each turn to their personal post-breakup coping mechanisms. Underwood hits the gym, one eats ice cream while watching an emotional film, another spends her newfound free time shopping online and the other friend decides to dive head-first into the dating scene once again via online dating.

Underwood then sends a message to the group thread saying, “We’re Goin’ Out, Who’s IN?”

Next, the five ladies find themselves out on the town dressed to the nines. As they enter a bar, Underwood and her friends notice an all-female band on stage. As the band plays, “Hate My Heart,” viewers realize that the performers are actually other versions of the group of friends.  

As the night continues, (and after a few shots of tequila!) Underwood crowd surfs her way to the stage to join her superstar double in belting out the lyrics to the breakup anthem.

“‘Hate My Heart’ was definitely part of my desire to have fun on this album. I wanted songs that would be exciting to perform live and would fill up an arena, and that’s exactly what we’re about to do with The Denim & Rhinestones Tour,” she previously shared in a statement. “This one is definitely going to get everyone up on their feet and having a good time. It was great writing ‘Hate My Heart’ with Hillary Lindsey and David Garcia, who I love collaborating with, and also getting to work with Hardy, who brought a cool vibe and an energy to the track.”
