Lucky Carrie Underwood fans in Atlanta, GA. got an awesome opportunity when it was announced that the country singer would perform a surprise show for CMT’s Instant Jam series.
Wristbands were available Friday morning (Sept. 18) after the announcement was made, and in less than 3.5 hours, the show was sold out, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Underwood played an intimate venue in Atlanta called Variety Playhouse and treated the audience to a special 10-song set, including “Smoke Break,” “Something in the Water,” “Before He Cheats,” and “Wasted.”
“I think I must be the luckiest person on the planet sometimes because I get to do this,” Underwood told the crowd. “And I never thought I’d be on a stage like this in front of amazing people like you guys. Please know how grateful and thankful I am.”
Fans who follow Underwood on social media were made aware that something was going to happen because of her cryptic posts including a picture of a peach and a video of her singing “Georgia On My Mind”.
Fans who were unable to see the performance live will be able to catch it on Instant Jam on Oct. 17th at 10PM ET on CMT. Underwood’s much-anticipated new record, Storyteller, is set for release Oct. 23.
