You’ve seen her in cowboy boots and slinky dresses, but we’re willing to bet you’ve never witnessed Carrie Underwood like this before! In a recently released poster for NBC’s upcoming Sound of Music broadcast, the American Idol alum proved she can pull off cute just as well as sexy, showing off a Maria von Trapp appropriate dirndl and braids.
Fans are getting super excited for Carrie Underwood’s performance in the televised version of The Sound of Music. Set to play Maria von Trapp, Carrie will once again show why she’s an international superstar. The singer certainly looks the part, as she proved in a brand new promotional poster. This image was shared via Carrie’s official Twitter account, along with the caption, “Here’s a first look of @carrieunderwood as Maria von Trapp in The Sound of Music.” In the accompanying photo, Carrie appears to be dressed in a dirndl, a costume choice more than appropriate for this distinctive role.
The Carrie Underwood poster was one of several spoilers released by NBC. The network also revealed the names of three additional stars set to appear in the broadcast: Smash’s Christian Borle, Private Practice’s Audra McDonald and former Maria von Trapp Broadway star Laura Benanti. Between these three talented entertainers, Carrie Underwood and True Blood’s Stephen Moyer as Captain von Trapp, the musical broadcast certainly has snagged itself an excellent cast lineup!
