Carrie Underwood had some extra special fans in the audience for the first night of her highly-anticipated 43-city Denim & Rhinestones Tour, which kicked off in Greenville, South Carolina.
A few days after the sold-out show at Bon Secours Wellness Arena on Saturday (Oct. 15), the country star took to social media to share that her husband Mike Fisher and sons Isaiah and Jacob were present and giving their full support. As she soared over the audience during her performance of “Ghost Story,” her son was filmed raising his hands in excitement and calling out for his mom as he watched her in awe from her husband’s arms.
“One was blowing me kisses…one was sleeping soundly,” the singer wrote on the video.
Her caption read, “My sweet boys came to see their mommy’s first show! Jakey caught a few songs, at least, before he drifted off to dream land…”
Fisher, a former NHL player also shared several moments from the night on his Instagram. He snapped a series of photos of showcasing Underwood’s jaw-dropping on-stage displays.
The visually stunning production wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Directer Barry Lather (Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson), and Production Designer Nick Whitehouse/Fireplay (Justin Timberlake, Beyoncé).
This trek is in support of Underwood’s newest album, Denim & Rhinestones, which dropped in June. Special guest Jimmie Allen is joining her on the road to help create a show that is unlike anything fans have ever seen from the Oklahoma native. It features newly-added aerial displays, pyro, and much more.
This spring, the seven-time GRAMMY winner wrapped up her run with REFLECTION: The Las Vegas Residency which was held at the brand-new Resorts World Theatre.
Underwood will take her Denin & Rhinestones Tour across the country before returning to Las Vegas in 2023.
Underwood’s husband and boys previously had the chance to travel from Nashville to Vegas to catch this incredible show and once again, show their support for their mom and wife. In an Instagram post by Fisher, their sons were shown sitting in their seats eagerly awaiting their mom’s grand entrance.
“Boys are ready,” he captioned his post.
With her busy schedule, Underwood recently revealed how she plans to keep up with her family while she’s on the road for the next six months. During an interview on the TODAY Show, the “Before He Cheats” singer revealed that the kids will join her when they’re not in school and when they are at home, she will fly to them on and off.
When asked if her kids understand the type of job she has, Underwood responded that her oldest, Isaiah, is starting to pick up on the fact that his mom has a bit of a different career than his classmates’ parents.
“I feel like Isaiah, who’s seven and a half, he’s becoming more aware that it’s not normal. He’ll go to school, and somebody will be like, ‘I saw your mom on TV last night,’” she explained before adding, “He’s just becoming more aware that his mom does something that’s not normal.”
The couple tied the knot in 2010 at the Ritz-Carlton Reynolds on Lake Oconee in Greensboro, Georgia and welcomed Isaiah into the world in 2015. Four years later, Underwood gave birth to their son Jacob.
Carrie Underwood’s next show is set for Thursday, Oct. 20 in Lexington, KY. The Denim & Rhinestones Tour will continue with stops in cities that include Minneapolis, Houston, St. Louis, and many more before concluding on March 17, 2023.
