Volcano’s Ash Forces Carrie to Take Road Trip

She ends up on an 11-hour ride in Australia.

Carrie Underwood is like the U.S. Postal Service—neither sleet nor snow nor hail nor tons of ash from a Chilean volcano will stop her.

OK, the U.S. post office probably doesn’t deal with Chilean volcano ash very often, but Carrie had to on the trip to Australia that she just wrapped. Carrie, after making appearances on Australian television’s Dancing With the Stars and The Circle, found herself in Melbourne and in need of getting to the TV show Sunrise in Sydney, but air travel had been shut down. So she hopped a bus for an 11-hour trip.

“I didn't want to take the chance to miss performing for my fans in Sydney, so we decided to get a bus and make the drive!” Carrie said in a statement.

“It also gave me an opportunity to see more of the country than I’d otherwise get to see which was very exciting!"
