"Carrie Underwood's dynamic 'Blown Away Tour'-starring her peerless powerhouse vocals and featuring amazing special effects including a tornado- has been entertaining music fans around the globe," said Museum Director Kyle Young. "It's easy to see why she was Pollstar's 2012 top female country touring artist. Touring has always been a key element connecting music artists with their fans; those interactions help forge and strengthen the artist-fan relationship, and this exhibit speaks to that. We are delighted to be able to show our visitors key elements from Carrie's show; whether re-living their favorite memories of the tour, or experiencing it for the first time via our exhibition, fans will enjoy this 'up close and personal' look at a world-class, superstar level music tour."
The Blown Away Tour exhibition will recreate nearly a dozen vignettes from the tour and include the following artifacts:
- One-of-a-kind gowns, embellished separates and other stage wear created by Emmy Award-winning costume designer Marina Toybina including a wide array of coordinating shoes, jewelry and accessories
- Colorful customized microphones made for and used by Carrie throughout each show
- Select band members' costumes and instruments
- Items from Carrie's backstage "meet-and-greet" area, including a selection of gifts and signs presented to Carrie by fans during the tour
