Carrie and her band have had so much fun on the Cry Pretty Tour 360 that Carrie wanted to run one last contest to fly you and a guest to Detroit to the last concert of the Cry Pretty Tour 360 on October 31st!

Throughout the Cry Pretty Tour 360, Carrie and her band included 7 hidden gems throughout the show. These hidden musical gems are non-country songs woven into Carrie’s songs throughout the show at various places. They could be anything from a verse to a riff. Some include vocals, some do not. None of the songs are part of the Women of Country Medley.
