Remember that absolutely huge dress that Carrie Underwood wore at the Academy of Country Music Awards in April? It was huge. The dress contained 120 yards of fabric and featured an eight-foot train. She wore the dress during her performance of “I Told You So.”
Anyone who visits the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville beginning June 11, will have the opportunity to see that dress as part of “Carrie Underwood: All American Girl” exhibit, which is included with the regular admission price at the museum. The exhibit will be at the museum through the end of the year.
In interviews since the ACM award show in April, Carrie said “It was an honor to wear such a beautiful dress during one of the most special nights of my life. I truly felt like a princess!” The dress was designed by Rafael Cennamo.
Since winning American Idol in 2005, Carrie has become one of the most popular performers in the nation. Her debut album, Some Hearts, is the biggest selling American Idol debut project to date, having sold more than seven million copies in the United States. With the release of her current album, Carnival Ride, she has now sold more than 10 million albums in just over three years.
Carrie has won numerous awards over the last four years, including four Grammy Awards and numerous trophies from the Academy of Country Music, the Country Music Association, the CMT Music Awards, the American Music Awards, the People’s Choice Awards and more.
How convenient for visitors to this year’s CMA Music Fest for the exhibit to be opening the same day the Festival opens. I think a little side trip to the museum might be on the minds of a lot of festival-goers this year. That’s just one more thing to try to put into your already full schedule during your four-day Nashville stay.
Just in case you missed the award show back in April, here’s the video of Carrie singing “I Told You So,” … wearing the now famous dress.
Talk to you all soon – it’s mail night. So if I owe you an e-mail, you should have one from me before the night is over. Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday!
