Reigning CMA Female Vocalist and five-time nominee this year Pearce will perform a special song from her most recent album. With three nominations this year including CMA Entertainer of the Year, Underwood will perform her newest single “Hate My Heart.”
The country heroine co-wrote the song with frequent collaborators Hillary Lindsey and David Garcia, and with artist/songwriter Hardy. Her Denim & Rhinestones tour began in Greenville, SC on October 15, with dates to continue this fall and in the spring of 2023.
Underwood’s special guest on all the shows is Jimmie Allen, and $1 from each ticket sold for the tour will be contributed to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation. Since 9/11, the fund has been helping America’s heroes by providing mortgage-free homes to Gold Star and fallen first responder families with young children and by building custom-designed smart homes for catastrophically injured veterans and first responders. Tickets and more information are available at carrieunderwoodofficial.com/tour.
“Hate My Heart” is the second single from Underwood’s Denim & Rhinestones album. The country superstar launched the song with a new video clip providing a behind-the-scenes look at her rehearsal of the song for her upcoming tour.
