Madam Tussauds now has a wax figure of Carrie Underwood in their VIP room. The statue was unveiled recently in New York. Carrie was on hand with her likeness. The wax figure was dressed in a gown designed by Trish Townsend. It was the one Carrie wore on the red carpet at the 2006 CMA awards. Carrie donated the dress for the museum.
This isn’t just a wax figure fans can look at – they will be able to take pictures with it, and even get free hugs from the wax statue.
If you have plans to visit New York, be sure to stop by the museum and have your picture taken with the statue. Carrie said she was excited to be able to attend the unveiling.
Carrie and Brad Paisley will be hosting the 2008 CMA awards on Nov. 12. You’ll be able to watch the program at 9 p.m. on ABC.

Back in February, I told you all about an article in People Magazine – about boots. They talked about Josh Turner’s Ariat Legend boots in black deertan for $169.96; and Willie Nelson’s crocodile boots with turqoise for $4,000 — the article also mentioned Luke Bryan’s Lucchese Classic Boots in Cherry Ostrich, which cost $1,200. Now Lukas been chosen to endorse Lucchese boots..and Luke says the partnership is perfect. He has been a fan of Lucchese boots for a long time, and said it has been fun getting to know the folks at Lucchese.
Luke has had a very successful year. His single "Country Man" made it into the top 10 on the charts, and "Good Directions," which he co-wrote for Billy Currington, won ASCAP’s Song of the Year. Luke has kept a busy tour schedule as well, opening for acts like Trace Adkins, Dierks Bentley and Kenny Chesney.
I hope you all had a great weekend. I’ll talk to you soon. Keep those e-mails and photos coming. Love hearing from you all.
