From Idol to queen.
Thursday, Oct. 25, at 7:30 p.m.
Will Carrie Underwood ever be able to separate herself from American Idol, the TV singing competition she won in 2005? Maybe the question should be, “Does she want to?” Since being named winner of the Fox television show’s fourth season for her country soul and dynamite voice, Underwood has racked up enough awards and accolades to appease the gods, including multi-platinum artist, female vocalist of the year (Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association) and entertainer of the year (ACM). AI is just the first in a long line of titles Checotah’s favorite daughter will assume through her monumental entertainment career. Billboard’s “reining queen” of country music sets down her "Blown Away Tour" with opening act Hunter Hayes at the Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W. Reno Ave., Oklahoma City. Show is at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25. Tickets are $46-$66. For more, go to www.chesapeakearena.com.
