Underwood is set to release her eagerly anticipated new album, "Cry Pretty," on Sept. 14. "Cry Pretty" will be her first studio album on Capitol Records Nashville and marks the first time she has co-produced her own album. The lead single and title track, "Cry Pretty," debuted as the No. 1 song in the U.S. all-genres. The song also topped download charts in 38 countries around the world and amassed over 3.5 billion social impressions across 66 countries during its week of launch in April. This was culminated with a show-stopping performance on the 2018 ACM Awards telecast.
Underwood co-wrote the single with Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna and Liz Rose (aka The Love Junkies), and co-produced "Cry Pretty" with fellow writer/producer David Garcia.
Following her successful "The Storyteller Tour - Stories in the Round," the new production will feature a brand-new stage in the middle of the arena floor, creating a unique, 360-degree setting to allow fans on all sides of the arena an intimate view of the concert. Barry Lather (Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson) is the tour's creative director, while Nick Whitehouse/Fireplay (Justin Timberlake, Beyonce) is production designer.
"I love performing in the round," Underwood said. "It's so much fun for me and the band to play in every direction and creates a much more intimate and immersive experience for the audience, even in a larger arena setting. It's been exciting to introduce audiences to 'Cry Pretty,' and I can't wait to bring the new album to life on this tour, along with all of the songs we love to play live. I'm thrilled to be going out with an amazing line-up - Maddie & Tae and Runaway June are incredible artists that are going to bring even more electricity to our shows."
Underwood has arranged for a donation of $1 from each ticket sold for "The Cry Pretty Tour 360" to be contributed to Danita's Children, which provides a safe haven for abandoned and vulnerable children in Haiti, while encouraging families to stay together through their education and malnutrition programs.
