Carrie Underwood appeared on NBC’s Today on Thursday (May 13), filling fans in on the details behind some big performance news.
Just a day after announcing her first Las Vegas residency, Reflection, the country superstar checked in for a chat with hosts Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager to spread the word.
“We’re goin’ to Vegas, baby!” Underwood said, wearing a pink top and sporting long, wavy hair. “Country’s comin’ to town!”
Underwood announced her Reflection residency on Wednesday (May 12), revealing six shows at The Theatre at Resorts World Las Vegas — a brand new venue with an up-close-and-personal feel. Underwood’s first round of shows are scheduled for December 1, 3, 4, 8, 10 and 11, with general public tickets on sale Monday, May 24 at 10 a.m. PT at axs.com. And according to her, fans will be in for a show highlighting her long and successful career.
“It’s called Reflection because I’ve been blessed to be a part of an incredible musical journey and lots of incredible moments onstage, and we kind of just want to bring all of the best of the best to Vegas, and have some fun,” she told Today. “So I’m looking forward to being back in front of people again, and just doing what we do — what we were made for.”
Later in the segment, Carrie Underwood was surprised with the news that her music video for “Hallelujah” (with John Legend) had been nominated for two 2021 CMT Music Awards — Collaborative Video of the Year and Video of the Year, the night’s top prize.
After admitting she was shocked, the superstar went on to chat with a pair of her biggest fans, and gave them a surprise as well … tickets to her new Vegas show.
