Rising star Priscilla Block is a lifelong Carrie Underwood fan. So much so, that she sang Underwood’s 2007 hit song “Wasted” in her elementary school talent show.

“So, I started doing talent shows in elementary school, just ‘cause all of my friends were doing it, whatever,” Bloc recalled in a recent interview with her record label. “And my first talent show, I think I was in second grade, and I sang – I’ve been a trainwreck since day one,” she said with a laugh. “Honestly, I sang ‘Wasted’ by Carrie Underwood for like my third-grade talent show. And I remember my friends’ parents were like, is she? They’re singing ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ and I’m singing ‘Wasted’ by Carrie Underwood. It was just, oh my gosh, yup, that was me.”

In another talent show, the singer/songwriter performed Rascal Flatts’ “God Bless the Broken Road.”

Little did she know, in a little over a decade, she would be climbing the charts with her own songs.

Priscilla Block’s latest single, “My Bar,” is featured on her debut album, Welcome To The Block Party. Out now, the project also features fan favorites like “Thick Thighs” and “Just About Over You.”

In addition, Block made her CMA Fest debut at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, TN and will be supporting Jon Pardi on select dates of his upcoming tour. She will also be hitting the stage at the Boots & Hearts Festival in Ontario, Canada on August 7th where she will be joined by a star-studded lineup, which includes Shania Twain, along with many others.

Fifteen years since releasing “Wasted,” Carrie Underwood continues to top the charts with her new music. Most recently, the country music icon released her ninth studio album Denim & Rhinestones and is preparing to embark on the Denim & Rhinestones Tour kicking off October 15th, 2022 in Greenville, South Carolina.
