Carrie Underwood: Even In The Rain, She Rocked
There was an hour of rain and lightning delay before Carrie Underwood took the stage at Nashville’s GEODIS Park to open for rock legend Guns N’ Roses Saturday (8/26), but that didn’t stop the country superstar from charming the rock fans with many covers and an electrifying show.
Before opening for Guns N’ Roses, she told us what she would be doing on stage. She said, “I’m doing some cover songs of some rock stuff that I love. I’m mashing up some of my songs with some other songs. We just look at it as an opportunity to be creative and get to do something we’ve never done before; just have a good time with it. So, hopefully, my fans who are at the shows will see things that they’ve never seen and hear things that they’ve never heard in a really cool way. Then also, even if there are people out there who have no idea what I do, hopefully, they’ll really enjoy seeing us before Guns N’ Roses and just have fun with us, too.”
She added, “Their fans are absolutely incredible and so supportive and just have been so much fun with everything that I’ve seen from them. I’m also looking forward to just doing some things in our set list that I might not get the chance to do any other time.”

Underwood opened for Guns N’ Roses on their Word Tour at a Moncton, New Brunswick show earlier this month (8/5). She also opened for the legendary rock band on August 8 in Montreal, Quebec, before the show in Nashville over the weekend.
Carrie posted to Instagram at soundcheck on Saturday (8/26) a photo of her in black leather looking out at the stadium seats, “Do you know where you are? You’re in NASHVILLE, baby!!! #GNRWorldTour.”
Many fans reacted to the post, including one who commented, “It was such a great show in Nashville! You always kill it!!” Another fan wrote, “I was there, and the entire show was great… even with the rain!” One more fan said, “It was so awesome!!!!”
