Carrie Underwood: The Blown Away Tour Live on DVD

Grade: B+

Carrie’s concert DVD won’t give you the charge of being there live, but it comes darn close.

If you’ve never seen Carrie Underwood in concert, now is your chance. And you don’t even have to leave your home. The new DVD, Carrie Underwood: The Blown Away Tour Live, gives viewers a front-row—and sometimes onstage—seat to one of the hottest tickets in country music.

Early in the concert (right from the first verse of show opener “Good Girl”), it’s clear why Carrie is considered the finest female vocalist working in country today. She downright sizzles. The DVD’s pristine production preserves the integrity of one of the best light and video touring shows on the circuit.

Transitions from songs and sets are virtually seamless, and the segue from “Jesus, Take the Wheel” to “How Great Thou Art” is a stunner.

And can we talk about Carrie’s impeccable vocals? Probably not—because there is hardly an adjective that adequately describes how dynamic, strong and impassioned they are.

If you were one of the lucky ones who caught Carrie on the Blown Away Tour, you’ll enjoy the bonus content that includes behind-the-scenes footage of rehearsals, wardrobe selection and the tour’s first show. There’s also a photo gallery and four of Carrie’s music videos, including her most recent, “See You Again,” which she performs in the DVD.

It’s a total package that is pleasing to both the ear and the eye.
