Crash Carrie Underwoods Costume Closet

If you’re headed to Nashville this summer; add this to your sightseeing list!

Carrie Underwood: The Blown Away Tour exhibit opened last week at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and it features a lot of costumes and accessories.  Carrie says the tour required so many outfits for a few reasons.  “For me, I don’t know about you guys, but I don’t want to wear the same thing to work every day.  I like to change things up too.  And also, being a lady, sometimes I feel … hmmm … smaller than others,” she laughs, “so it’s important to be able to have things for every occasion and make myself feel comfortable and be at my best every single night.”

Carrie explains that she had all of her costumes and accessories cataloged in a book and she would go through it before each show and put sticky tabs next to the things that she wanted to wear for the night.  But her choices weren’t all about keeping herself happy.  She also wanted to keep in mind her fans who were seeing the tour multiple times.  “Hopefully every time they came to a show they got to see something different,” she says, “different accessories, a different hair thing, different shoes, completely different outfit.  So that was important for me too, just for people to be able to come back and notice different things.”

Carrie Underwood: The Blown Away Tour exhibit will be open through November 10, 2013 at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.  You can learn more at CountryMusicHallOfFame.org.
