Carrie Underwood is used to rocking arenas and bringing thousands of fans to their feet. But last month, the country singer traded in sold-out stadiums for an intimate show at Atlanta’s Variety Playhouse. As part of CMT Instant Jam, Underwood performed a nine-song set that included her latest single “Smoke Break” and classics, “Jesus Take the Wheel” and “Before He Cheats.”
She also treated concertgoers to a high-energy performance of “Undo It” from her 2009 album Play On, and encouraged audience members to sing along. The performance, which debuted on Rolling Stone Wednesday, will air during Underwood’s Instant Jam special Oct. 17, six days before her fifth album Storyteller drops.
“I feel like this album is, it’s a little more twangy — if there’s a word I can use to describe it. Twangy, yeah,” Underwood told EW of Storyteller in August. “It’s got lots of different instrumentation for me and just kind of different feel but it’s going to be great live.”
And if her mini concert on CMT this weekend leaves you wanting more Carrie, the American Idol winner already has plans to tour with her new material in 2016. “I’m really excited to be able to get out on the road next year with it and play the new stuff,” she said. “I really feel like people are going to be able to relate to this album. We’ve explored different avenues, we’ve worked with different producers. I just wanted it to have a different feel and different sound altogether.”
