Underwood showed her excitement for the big show by saying “It’s going to be a big party for all of us” adding “I’ve been lucky enough in my life to go to lots of different other genre concerts as a fan, and I think I would rather be in a country crowd than any other crowd, just because they’re fun, they’re singing along, they’re dancing, everybody’s cool to one another.”
