Carrie Underwood Concert~ York Fair, York, PA

What a great show! I originally bought the tickets as a gift for my dear hubby and I just went along for company...as I am not a HUGE Carrie Underwood fan. Don't get me wrong, I wanted her to win American Idol and I thought she was great but after seeing her show, I am now a fan! Since I already had "Jesus take the Wheel" on my iPOD, I am now seeking out other songs to add as well. And I definitely wish I had downloaded "I'll Stand By You" when I had the chance back in the spring...because you can't get it now on itunes. Anyway, we had a great time and I've borrowed a photo of her from the concert so I can't take credit where credit is due. I love to take photos as a hobby but this one is great and not one of mine! Dear Hubs really liked the concert too but didn't like the seating I selected. Again, I try! Maybe next time the York Fair folks will provide the usual video screens for people who aren't sitting in the front rows. Also, we saw her opening act which turned out to be pretty good, a group called "Lady Ante Bellum" which is a strange name, but I think they should do well. We had to wait a long time for the crew to strike down their set before Carrie's set was ready. She was worth it in the end! Whoo hoo! I hope this doesn't turn me into a country girl...

awesome! I also hated country music too before american idol and carrie lured me in...I still prefer rock, and always will, but I have begun to like some country artists like keith urban, kenny chesney, martina mcbride and rascal flats, due to carrie exposing me to them. Carrie is amazing live, and is way under-rated as a performer. She has improved alot since american idol. Glad you had fun- and welcome to carrie land. Go to carriefans.com if you want to download some free mp3s of her live performances of her songs-including I'll stand by you. Also- her fanclub is only 25 bucks to join and it is great, totally worth the money. -theresa
