Carrie Underwood shared a mysterious video on Twitter earlier today, seemingly teasing an upcoming project, due out this Friday. While the country performer captioned the post solely with an eye emoji, the visual showcased a starry night sky, along with the date “March 18th.” In addition, it featured a short-but-hypnotic music snippet.
The cryptic project will follow Underwood’s recent hit with fellow country star Jason Aldean, “If I Didn’t Love You.” The pair performed the duet last Monday at the 57th annual Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards, and shared a win for Single of the Year.
During a backstage interview at the event, Underwood hinted at a new project. “Obviously we can’t spill too many beans right now, but my fans know what I mean when I say… soon.” The singer-songwriter continued, “actually, [my fans] hate it when I use that word, because they’re like, ‘What does that mean?!’ But, [I’ve] been busy for sure.” The day after the award show, Underwood shared a picture of herself in the studio, with the caption, “So, I did a thing…” furthering the excitement about fresh music.
Underwood has also been busy performing at her Reflection residency at Las Vegas’ Resorts World Theater, which spans fifteen years of hits from the best-selling artist. She is the first performer to grace the stage at the newly-opened casino’s 5000-capacity venue.
“It’s such a special honor to be the first artist to perform on this incredible stage in a brand new, beautiful, state-of-the-art theatre at such an exciting new destination as Resorts World Las Vegas,” said Underwood in an earlier statement. “I’m so proud of this show and so happy to finally get to share it with the amazing audiences here in Las Vegas.”
After a brief hiatus from the residency, which launched in December, Underwood is set to return to the stage on March 23. Tickets (including VIP packages) and more information are available via the show’s website.
