All-American girl, Carrie Underwood, is bringing her Storyteller Tour to the Times Union Center in Albany on October 27. Along with her award-winning band and performances, fans can expect an award-winning night to remember.
The reigning queen of country music has been on fire since her start in the business, just after winning the American Idol competition back in 2005 to a hands down vote of victory. Topping the charts with #1 Billboard singles one after another, including “Before He Cheats,” Jesus Take the Wheel” and “Good Girl,” Underwood’s career is still climbing and doesn’t look to be slowing any time soon.
With multi-platinum selling albums featuring influential collaborations, sold-out arenas and tours, which enabled her to add more shows to her current tour, Underwood has driven herself and her band to be the best and it shows everywhere as they all seem to be having so much fun doing what they love.
Scheduled to open the night at 7:00 p.m. are Florida native Easton Corbin and rising duo from Oklahoma, The Swon Brothers.
Corbin’s music adventures began in 2005 in Florida and flourished shortly after moving to Nashville before signing with label Mercury Nashville in 2009. Corbin has three studio albums and four charted U.S. Gold singles, “A Little More Country Than That,” “Roll With It,” “Lovin’ You Is Fun,” and “All Over the Road.”
The Swon Brothers consisting of Zach and Colton Swon, hail from Muskogee, Oklahoma, where they grew up playing music with their parents and entertained folks in a “family-style” variety show, playing songs from their favorite performers. In 2000, Zach and Colton began traveling around to local venues as a duo, sharing their music before eventually making an appearance on The Voice in 2013. Their hard work and appearance on the popular talent show earned them third place in the finals of season eight and the opening slot of this Storyteller Tour.
There are still a few tickets available for Oct. 27 at the Times Union Center in Albany, though they may go fast.
