Country icon Carrie Underwood just announced her “Cry Pretty Tour.”

The North American tour will visit 55 cities, including Denver, in 2019 and kick off in Greensboro, North Carolina before making its way to the Pepsi Center September 16 of 2019. Underwood’s latest album, Cry Pretty, drops next month, September 14, 2018 — nearly a year before her Colorado appearance, giving fans plenty of time to get to know her new material.

In addition to bringing new music to Denver, Underwood is slated to open the show with two new names to country music — Maddie & Tae and Runaway June.

It’s been a while since Underwood has hit the road with new music. Cry Pretty is her first album since Storyteller, released in 2015. And her last tour, “The Storyteller Tour,” featured an in-the-round stage and her 2019 tour is set to do the same. The Cry Pretty Tour is launching nearly eight months prior to the album release, which leaves us wondering why the star is waiting so long to bring her new music live. However, in an online video this morning Underwood revealed that in addition to the tour, her and her husband are expecting a baby — explaining the reasoning behind her delay.

And while we’re all looking forward to having a ball at her show in 2019, it’s not all about the fun and games. The tour is predicted to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars by raising money for a good cause. A dollar from each ticket sold will go to Danita’s Children, a group that takes care of abandoned children in Haiti and offers education and nutrition programs to families. The Cry Pretty Tour kicks off May 1, 2019.
