Carrie Underwood serenades fans at private concert
ASHVILLE, Tenn. – As country music fans flock to Nashville for the annual CMA Music Fest, Carrie Underwood gave some of her fans the opportunity to attend a private concert.
Underwood only sang songs members of her fan club wanted to hear during the hour long concert held at the Grand Ole Opry House.
"We go on her Web site and choose songs that we like to hear her sing. That makes it even more fun because it's more interactive for people who belong in her fan club," explained fan Joyce Peterson of Houston, Texas.
The show not only gave 1,000 of Underwood's fans the opportunity to see the superstar perform live, but also participate in a question and answer session hosted by TV and radio host Storme Warren.
Jary Mclean is from Kansans. He told Nashville's News 2 he enjoyed the once of a lifetime concert and Q and A session.
"We found out that she appeared on Tootsie's stage at the age of 12. That's the kind of stuff you don't find out other places," he said.
Marilyn Haffey of Colorado said she has always been a fan of Underwood's.
"She's such a great role model. I think that's one of the things that attract her fans because she's such a down-to-earth, loving and caring person," she said.
Underwood is scheduled to hit the stage of the Grand Ole Opry on Tuesday night with Lady Antebellum and Darius Rucker among others.
