Carrie Underwood recovered like a true pro after a pretty awkward technical glitch during the opening night of her “Cry Pretty Tour 360” at Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina, on May 1. Video shared by concertgoer @carrieismyqueen on Twitter following the gig showed the star keeping calm and carrying on after her microphone stopped working part way through her set.
The clip posted by the fan during the opening night saw Underwood belting out the song “Drinking Alone” from her 2018 album Cry Pretty into a dangling microphone that stretched down from the ceiling. However, the star’s voice couldn’t be heard at all through the mic – meaning all fans heard was the sound of her band.
But the mishap didn’t seem to faze the talented mom of two at all, as she ditched the microphone and sassily walked across the stage – which is a huge production in the center of the arena that sees her perform for fans in the round – to grab a wireless microphone to keep on singing.
Making things even more awkward for 36-year-old Carrie, the second microphone didn’t work at first either, but her powerful voice returned after a few seconds to fill the arena as she belted out the sultry hit from her latest album.

The country superstar has already been getting rave reviews for her brand new tour, which will see her perform night after night across the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. until October.
Several fans flocked to Twitter after seeing the very first stop on the string of shows to praise Underwood – who shockingly only welcomed her second child into the world back in January – for the huge production she put on earlier this week.

Carrie also appeared to be having a pretty great time herself as she hit the road for the first time since 2016 when she toured across North America as part of her “Storyteller: Stories In The Round Tour.”
Sharing two photos of herself on stage, the star wrote on her Twitter account after the show, “Thank you, Greensboro, for an AMAZING first show of the #CryPrettyTour360! We truly felt the love tonight!!!”
Underwood – who The Inquisitr shared spoke candidly about the possibility of having more children after suffering three miscarriages – recently opened up to Entertainment Tonight about her huge tour, sharing how excited she was to be able to bring her two sons, 3-month-old Jacob and 4-year-old Isaiah, on the road with her.
“Our first day of the ‘Storyteller Tour,’ my son Isaiah walked for the first time. Now he’s four and we’re on the ‘Cry Pretty Tour,'” the “Love Wins” singer told the outlet. “I just know we’re gonna have many more milestones with him and with Jacob, who is three months old.”
“It just makes my heart happy [that] I have the kind of job where I can bring my children with me and they can be a part of it,” Carrie then continued of making her latest tour a family affair. “My work and my life kind of collide all together and it makes for a big, wonderful mess.”
The American Idol winner’s confessions about motherhood come shortly after The Inquisitr reported earlier this week that Underwood shared the sweetest photo of her 3-month-old son sleeping his way through tour rehearsals ahead of opening night.
