Checotah native Carrie Underwood will bring her critically acclaimed “Blown Away Tour” to AXS TV for a live full concert performance from Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, Calif., on Sunday.
Named the top female country touring artist of 2012, Underwood is currently on the second leg of the highly successful “Blown Away Tour,” which continues through May throughout the U.S., Canada, and across the pond to the UK and Ireland.
Underwood said in the release, “I’ve had the opportunity to play in so many wonderful cities and venues on this tour and still have many more to go, but I am so excited that AXS TV has given us the opportunity to be able to share the concert experience live with fans at home. It’s going to be a great night!”
“The Blown Away Tour” Live 2013 is not Underwood’s first appearance on AXS TV. The multiple award-winning artist gave the network’s nightly live music news, trends and interview program, AXSLive, an exclusive backstage interview and live look in to “The Blown Away Tour” when it stopped at Staples located in the heart of the network’s home campus, L.A. Live.

Fans will not be disappointed by the front row seat we give them to The Blown Away Tour on March 3rd,” said AXS TV Chairman Mark Cuban in the release.
