Carrie Underwood recently updated her Instagram account. The Cry Pretty singer has been steadily filling her feed with mash-up videos as she traverses the U.S. on her “Cry Pretty 360” tour, although not all the cities she has visited have been as major as the one featured in today’s video.

The singer’s appearance at New York City’s Madison Square Garden this week was recently documented by The Inquisitr, although the gun metal mini dress seen in a snap posted to MSG’s Instagram account only proved the tip of the iceberg compared to this video. Carrie’s mash-up today included a whole host of sizzling looks, with the footage also including some backstage moments. For fans of Carrie, these likely proved the most touching.

Carrie’s video showed her both on the stage and off it. During her performances, Carrie was seen belting out her songs, although the video itself opened by honoring the Big Apple location. The city’s iconic block infrastructure was seen, with a poster of Carrie’s face in front of Madison Square Garden also appearing.

Carrie was then heard saying that it was “good to be back in New York City this evening,” with fans then hearing the mother-of-two’s famous “Southbound” song playing.

Carrie was also featured in some backstage pics. One unusual snap showed the singer rocking a simple pair of jeans in a group setting – she tends to appear in glittery dresses – but the singer speaking to the camera is likely what did it for fans.

Carrie’s backstage moment saw her rocking a pink one-shouldered dress. The blonde seemed so excited, it was like she could barely contain herself. An “oh my god!” was heard as Carrie expressed her excitement at being in the Big Apple, with the singer seen pointing behind her as she noted her Madison Square Garden location.

Carrie then seemed to struggle to find words for how amazing the crowd had been; she even put her hands over her eyes at one point. Carrie then admitted she was in a state of disbelief.


“I don’t know what just happened,” she said. “Wow.”

Admittedly, there was a moving element to seeing this country singer gushing backstage at one of the world’s most prestigious venues. Carrie is a superstar in the music industry, with her early days auditioning in front of Simon Cowell appearing to be a distant memory. Carrie now has a solid career, a business, and a family. Clearly, the star was moved by her recent appearance.
