^ So she does open the show with GG. For a while there, when Chris Young said he would be in the opening with Carrie and a few other artists, I thought it would be a group performance of a different song.. then GG would come later in the show. GG would be a great opening number!
As for the international tour, I hope there are Asian dates. But realistically, she'll probably visit Australia again and have a few European stops doing small concerts like what Brad and Martina did. It would be great timing for her to do that before her US tour. She and Mike can go and do a vacation/work thing.

She said she's gonna try to dance for the performance tonight.... oh goodness. lol
Carrie Underwood might make her performance of new single “Good Girl” on the Academy of Country Music Awards tonight look effortless, but she promises it’s harder than it looks.
“This is my first TV performance of anything from my new album,” she said before the show. “The song whips my butt. I’ve been working on breath control. We wrote a really hard song that day, and I tend to pick hard songs to sing because I like a challenge. I’m definitely keeping my fingers crossed. Our first rehearsal was a little rough. You just have to figure out where to breathe. We think when we’re on stage. I’m like a duck paddling under the surface, but hopefully I look cool.”
Underwood’s new album Blown Away will be in stores May 1.
Good performance, but I could hardly hear her over the music sometimes. They need to work on that.
We say that every year. It's clearly not going to change. To me that's why Carrie should go for a more scaled back (even unplugged) performance at these things.
"'Vision Of Love', when I first heard that song, I knew it, my mind was made up, I had to be a singer." - Beyonce "When I discovered Mariah Carey and 'Vision of Love,' that was a breath of fresh air. And I adored her from that moment on and idolized her." - Christina Aguilera "I think ['Vision Of Love'] was a vision of the future world of American Idol." - Rich Juzwiak, Slant
Yeah, there was definitely breath/pitch issues. I love Carrie, and still loved the performance, but they have to figure out something. I don't need her to be dancing around for these kinds of songs. I'd rather her just stand there and nail it vocally. I think she was nervous too though.
