Carrie Underwood will participate in a superstar Q&A at the second annual Billboard Country Music Summit in association with the Country Music Assn.
Underwood, who will be interviewed June 6 by Billboard senior chart manager Wade Jessen, is one of the most successful entertainers in country music. A three-time CMA female vocalist of the year winner, she has amassed 12.3 million in U.S. album sales, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and has placed 10 No. 1 singles on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart.
"We are proud to be able to announce Carrie Underwood as a keynote," Billboard editorial director Bill Werde says. "She's not only a stellar singing talent, but in a day and age when it's so hard to leverage early success into a lifelong career, she's made a lot of the right moves to turn herself into a bankable brand that stands for quality in music."
The Billboard Country Music Summit will be held June 6-7 at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel and will feature panel sessions, round-table discussions and keynote interviews. For information and to register, go to countrymusicsummit.com.
