Carrie Underwood is considered to be not only one of the biggest success stories in country music, but also the owner of one of Nashville's biggest hearts. She continues that tradition with a performance at the Nordstrom Symphony Fashion Show on Tuesday, Feb. 28 -- all for a good cause.
Nordstrom, in partnership with the Nashville Symphony, will present the event, which will feature Underwood and an exclusive presentation of Oscar de la Renta's Pre-Fall 2012 collection on Tuesday, February 28 from 6-10 pm at Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville , with a cocktail reception before the show and dinner to follow.
This year marks Nordstrom's first time producing the fashion show since opening a store at Nashville's The Mall at Green Hills in September of 2011, as well as Carrie Underwood 's first performance at the Symphony Fashion Show. Guests will also have the opportunity to get a closer look at the featured fashions after the performance and fashion show at an exclusive boutique inside Schermerhorn Symphony Center.
Proceeds from the Nordstrom Symphony Fashion Show will assist the Symphony in reaching more than 95,000 people through free community concerts; bringing world-renowned artists such as Yo-Yo Ma , Bela Fleck and Emanuel Ax to perform for local audiences; providing barrier-free music education to thousands of students across Middle Tennessee; and supporting the work of today's leading composers.
Underwood, a 19 Recordings/Arista Nashville recording artist, is a current Grammu Award nominee and a five-time Grammy winner, a two-time Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year, a three-time Country Music Association and ACM Female Vocalist winner, and a proud member of the Grand Ole Opry. Since her debut in 2005, Underwood has amassed more than 12 million in album sales and has placed 14 No. 1 singles on the charts.
