Carrie Underwood has revealed plans to return to the road this fall for a nationwide tour in support of her brand new album, Blown Away. The country superstar will perform multiple shows in New England, including the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts on Wednesday, September 19. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $46 to $66, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.

“I can’t wait to get back out on the road and perform new music from my new album for my fans,” declared Underwood in a press release. “We have a lot of exciting things planned!”

Underwood will kick off the tour in New Hampshire with a show at Manchester’s Verizon Wireless Arena on Friday, September 14. She’ll hit Rhode Island for a show at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center on Monday, September 17. Fans in Connecticut can first catch her perform at the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport on Saturday, September 15. She’ll return for a show in Hartford at the XL Center on Saturday, November 10. Rising star Hunter Hayes will open all shows on the upcoming tour.

Blown Away, Underwood’s fourth studio effort and follow-up to 2009’s Play On, debuted at #1 on Billboard 200 after its release earlier this month. It was her third album to chart at #1, making her only the third woman to take three country albums to #1 on the Billboard 200 (the others being Linda Ronstadt and Faith Hill). She also became only the second country artist in the 47 year history of the chart to have each of their first four albums debut at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.

Produced by Mark Bright (Rascal Flatts, Reba McEntire), Underwood co-wrote eight of the Blown Away‘s fourteen tracks, including lead single “Good Girl”. The video for the song, which was filmed in Los Angeles by director Theresa Wingert, is streaming below.

Underwood will donate $1 from each ticket sold on the North American leg of “The Blown Away Tour” to support Red Cross disaster relief.
