Carrie Underwood Announces Free Atlanta Concert

It’s a darn good time to be a Georgian if you’re a Carrie Underwood fan.

The singer announced she will perform a free show at Variety Playhouse in Atlanta today, Friday, Sept. 18. A few hours before the announcement, she hinted at the event by sharing a video of herself lip-syncing Ray Charles’ “Georgia on My Mind” on her Instagram account.

The concert is part of the CMT Instant Jam series, which has previously featured surprise performances from artists including Kenny Chesney and Florida Georgia Line. Fans lined up early this morning to grab a wristband for the intimate concert, which will be recorded for CMT.

This is the latest event that Underwood has announced ahead of the release of Storyteller, her fifth studio album. The record is set for release on Oct. 23, and features her current single, “Smoke Break”.  Underwood has been using her social media accounts to share info about the album with her fans. The track listing from Storyteller was revealed last week through a series of animated Instagram videos. She also interacted with fans for a quick Q&A session through the live-streaming app Periscope.
