American country singer Carrie Underwood has performed for the fist time in the UK, at a sold-out show at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall. The former American Idol winner is on tour following the release of her fourth album "Blown Away".

Underwood said she was happy with the reaction from the crowd. The first single from Underwood’s new record was released in February. ’Good Girl’ topped the US Billboard Hot 100 as well as the US Country Songs Billboard chart. The album ’Blown Away’ is out this week in the UK, with a second single set for release next month.

Underwood’s ’Blown Away’ Tour is heading to Australia next for a sold-out show at the Sydney Opera House. Underwood shot to fame in 2005 when she won the fourth season of American Idol. Since then she has become a multi-platinum selling recording artist, winning several Grammys and Billboard Music accolades.
