The donation of $1 from each ticket sold on the North American leg of “The Blown Away Tour” will support Red Cross disaster relief. Every year, the American Red Cross prepares for and responds to nearly 70,000 disasters across the United States. This donation will help the Red Cross provide shelter, food, and emotional support for those in need after a disaster. Proceeds from her Canadian concerts will be donated to the Canadian Red Cross.
Carrie’s Blown Away album made history this spring by debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart, making Carrie only the second country artist in the 47-year history of the chart to have each of their first four albums debut at No. 1. Blown Away also debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, making Carrie only the second country artist in history to have three consecutive albums debut at No. 1. Blown Away became country’s best-selling digital album debut since 2010 and has now sold a million copies. The album’s first two singles, “Good Girl” and “Blown Away,” both reached No. 1 status earning her a total of three weeks atop the country airplay charts in 2012, more than any other female country artist this year.
In addition to her CMA nomination for Female Vocalist, Carrie is also a double-nominee for the upcoming American Music Awards, up for Favorite Female Artist – Country, as well as Favorite Album – Country, for Blown Away. Airing November 18 on ABC, the American Music Awards are fan-voted, with online balloting underway now at www.AMAVote.com.
