The American Country Countdown took an awesome look back at the top ten stories of 2015, and naturally, Carrie Underwood’s big return to music was one of them. We got an early Christmas present from Carrie as she performed ‘Smoke Break’ during the big show on Dec. 17.
We LOVE Carrie Underwood and got the sweet treat of seeing her give a mind-blowing performance of “Smoke Break” during the American Country Countdown’s Top Ten Stories of 2015 special, hosted by Florida Georgia Line, on Dec. 17. The show ranked the the biggest stories of the year in country music and her release of Storyteller – the 32-year-old’s first new album of fresh material since 2012’s Blown Away – was definitely a highlight of 2015!
To end her epic 2015, the country superstar performed “Smoke Break” and looked amazing wearing a sleeveless black minidress. The singer rocked out behind her guitar and further proved why she’s one of the most successful country artists ever. Buy Carrie’s Storyteller album by clicking here.
2015 was a pretty amazing year for Carrie. Not only did she finally return with a brand new album, she became a first time mom when she welcomed son Isaiah Michael with hockey star husband for five years Mike Fisher back on Feb. 27. But being a new mom certainly didn’t slow down the former American Idol champ. She did her annual stint as co-host of the Country Music Association awards on Nov. 4 alongside pal Brad Paisley, performed her hit “Smoke Break,” and rocked a whopping 12 outfits in one night! She followed up that performance by triumphing at the American Music Awards, taking home the trophy for Favorite Female Country Music artist later that month. Go Carrie!
We already know Carrie is going to have an even more amazing 2016 coming up. She’s the official Saturday night the headliner for the annual Stagecoach Music Festival held in Indio, CA in late April, on an evening that includes other hot country acts like The Band Perry and Chris Statpleton. Being a headliner at Stagecoach is a definite sign that you are absolutely at the top of the country music world!
