On The Cover: Carrie Underwood Graces MusicRow Magazine’s 2018 Publisher Issue

Carrie Underwood is featured on the cover of MusicRow Magazine’s all-new 2018 Publisher Issue.

Underwood emerged from the promise of her 2005 American Idol win to become a true multi-format, multi-media superstar, spanning achievements in music, television, and film. A seven-time GRAMMY® Award winner, she has sold 64 million records worldwide and recorded 26 No. 1 singles, 13 of which she co-wrote.

She released Cry Pretty, her first studio album on Capitol Records Nashville on Sept. 14, marking the first time she has co-produced her own album. In Spring 2019, Carrie will launch The Cry Pretty Tour 360, which will kick off in May and will play 55 arenas across the U.S. and Canada. Earlier this year, she released the hit event anthem she co-wrote, “The Champion” featuring Ludacris, which opened NBC’s Super Bowl LII and was incorporated into the network’s coverage of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games.

MusicRow Magazine’s 2018 Publisher Issue features an annual directory of top Nashville-focused music publishers. This issue also includes exclusive editorial examining Irving Azoff‘s Global Music Rights as well as Florida Georgia Line‘s growing Nashville empire, and highlights a slate of recent documentaries highlighting Nashville’s songwriter community. Additionally, this issue features songwriter interviews with Kassi Ashton, Shy Carter, Zach Crowell, Justin Ebach and Jessie Frasure.

Single copies of the Publisher Issue are available for purchase for $45 at musicrow.com, and are included with yearly subscriptions at no additional cost. First Class subscribers to MusicRow will receive their copies first, in the coming week.
