Tell us your favorite Carrie Underwood memory: My favorite Carrie Underwood memory was one that changed my life and every time I think about it I smile. I had never seen Carrie Underwood live but had wanted to since the first time I saw her on American Idol. I saw on Twitter that she was going to be at the Grand Ole Opry in June 2018. I begged my dad to let me go and he bought us tickets. The day that she was going to be performing, we did a backstage tour. I was wearing a CU Fan Club shirt and a CU baseball hat. The security guard looked at me and told me that she had to check in with him before she could go backstage. He then asked me if there was anything that I wanted him to tell her for me. I got so excited and asked him if he would tell her that I was one of her biggest fans, if not the biggest and that her music changed my life. He asked which show I would be at that night and I told him the second one. He then told me that he would take care of it and for me to be ready to be on cloud nine that night and that it was going to be the best night of my life. Well, I had no idea how right he was. That night, just before she came out, the announcer said “Up next we have someone very special and there is a huge fan in the audience that I would like to help me welcome the next artist, so Victoria McNeil, would you help me welcome Carrie Underwood?!” I got so excited and jumped up and started screaming. Then as Carrie Underwood came walking out, she said “Hi Victoria, thank you for your support!” Then a usher came up to me and told me that the security guard had told him to come find me and that he wanted me to sit front and center on the front row while Carrie Underwood was singing so that I could have the best experience possible and remember that night for the rest of my life. I then got to see her two more times within the next 3 days. I went from not seeing her live at all to seeing her at the Grand Ole Opry, CMT Awards and CMA Music Festival all within four days.
What is your go-to Carrie-Okie song? Jesus Take the Wheel
What is the best part about being a Carrie Underwood fan? There are many things that make being a Carrie Underwood fan amazing and the best. However, I think that the best thing about being a Carrie Underwood fan is getting encouraged by her and getting to share how amazing she is with other people.
