American Idol News: Carrie Underwood & Bo Bice Invade Tennessee

June 12, 2005 11:04 PM by Joe Blackmon

Oklahoma native Carrie Underwood and Alabama native Bo Bice might have had to travel all the way to Hollywood in order to become household names, but this week, both singers returned to the South to perform at two of the South’s largest music festivals.  Carrie Underwood was a featured performer at the CMA Music Festival in Nashville, Tennessee on Thursday, June 9, 2005.

Phil Vassar introduced Carrie Underwood at the CMA Music Festival, and then Phil and Carrie performed a duet of Phil’s original song “April Fools.”  Carrie also performed her American Idol single “Inside Your Heaven.”  Reality TV Magazine spoke to some fans in attendance at the event who said Carrie was given a very warm reception by the crowd.   

While Carrie Underwood was in Tennessee, Nashville’s newspaper The Tennessean reported that Carrie also sang the Reba McEntire/Linda Davis hit “Does He Love You?” as a duet with Jamie O’Neal for CMT’s 100 Greatest Duets TV special.  The Tennessean says the crowd “roared” every time Carrie hit a high note.

Of course no trip to Nashville would be complete without a visit to the Grand Ole Opry, The Tennessean’s entertainment columnist Brad Schmitt reports that Carrie Underwood received flowers from both Rascal Flatts and Trisha Yearwood as congratulations on her Grand Ole Opry debut.

Bo Bice also paid a trip to Tennessee.  Bo’s no stranger to Tennessee as his Sugar Money bandmates John Cooper and Shane Sexton currently reside in Tennessee.  According to Jambands.com, Bo Bice was the “Grand Marshall during Bonnaroo’s annual Centeroo parade” and made a “surprise appearance” with the band Galatic.  Bonnaroo is a rock festival held in Manchester, Tennessee that draws about 90,000 fans. 

Bo Bice has also posted a message to his band Sugar Money’s website thanking his fans for their support and asking for their input on which song on the Sugar Money “Recipe for Flavor” CD is their favorite.  (Reality TV Magazine’s favorite pick off the "Recipe for Flavor" CD is "Hold On", but "Papion" is a close second.)

    Well fellow Carrie lovers looks like Bo Bice has joined his no class, bottom feeding, Carrie bashing fans. Thanks to his articles in the press about being happy about winning, the whole world now sees the REAL Bo who belongs with his NO CLASS fans. Maybe now that he has $$$ coming in he has been able to afford better quality drugs than the ones he got arrested for in the past!!!!!!!!
