Get ready to rock ‘n’ roll, folks, because we’ve got some exciting news for you! Carrie Underwood, the country sensation who managed to work her magic and bring the legendary Axl Rose onstage not once, but twice, is now returning the favor.

She’ll be opening for Guns N’ Roses when they hit Nashville during their summer 2023 tour.

Can you believe it?

Underwood joined the entire GNR crew on stage in London last summer, and it’s safe to say that Music City is in for another treat with her rocking it out alongside Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan.

But that’s not all! Our girl Underwood will also be opening for Guns N’ Roses in Canada for two shows. The band, who made their epic reunion happen back in 2016, has also announced a stellar lineup of openers for their upcoming tour.

The one and only Chrissie Hynde and the Pretenders will be supporting them on several dates, including a newly added show at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. And as if that wasn’t enough to make your head spin, we’ve got the rockers from Los Angeles, Dirty Honey, the grunge icons Alice in Chains, and the incredible Mexican sibling trio, the Warning, playing select shows.

Now, let’s talk about our girl Carrie Underwood. She’s not just a fan of Axl Rose, folks, she’s a superfan! She’s been belting out those GNR tunes at her own concerts for years. In fact, she told Rolling Stone in 2022 that she’s been covering Guns N’ Roses for as long as she can remember.

It’s practically become a part of her musical DNA! She even learned how to sing by mimicking Axl Rose himself. She’s been mesmerized by his powerhouse vocals and constantly wondered, “How on earth does he do it?”

And let’s not forget the magical duet between Rose and Underwood in Los Angeles earlier this year. They brought down the house with their rendition of “Welcome to the Jungle.” It was a moment that left fans in awe and itching for more. Well, guess what? You’re in luck! Alongside their headlining tour this summer, Guns N’ Roses will be joining forces with AC/DC, Iron Maiden, and Metallica at the Power Trip Festival in Indio, California, this October. Talk about a lineup that’ll blow your mind!

So mark your calendars, rock enthusiasts! Guns N’ Roses is hitting the road and taking no prisoners. From coast to coast, they’ll be tearing up stages across North America. And with Carrie Underwood by their side, the energy is bound to be through the roof. From Nashville to Montreal, Boston to Chicago, and everywhere in between, get ready to rock your socks off. This is one tour you won’t want to miss!
