Carrie Underwood will headline her own variety television special set to air Dec. 7 on FOX at 7 p.m. CT. While the exact title of the primetime special has not been announced, the two-hour event will include appearances by guests Dolly Parton, Brad Paisley, David Cook and others. Underwood will perform music from her upcoming album, Play On, as well as previous hits and holiday classics.
For three weeks leading up to the new album’s Nov. 3 release date, iTunes will exclusively offer a new track for purchase and download. The iTunes Countdown kicks-off today (10/13) with “Mama’s Song,” and subsequent tracks include “Temporary Home” (available 10/20) and “Undo It” (available 10/27). For each new track every week, fans will be able to visit Billboard.com for a 48-hour sneak preview of the song immediately prior to its Tuesday release on iTunes, with each posting remaining on Billboard.com for a week from its debut.
