The $50 Million Dollar Woman: Why Carrie Underwood’s Crying Pretty all the way to the bank

ABC/Mark Levine Carrie Underwood is on track to rake in $45 to $50 million on her Cry Pretty Tour, according to Billboard.

So far, the American Idol winner has sold more than 209,000 tickets and brought in more than $17 million through her June 23 date in Lincoln, Nebraska. Once the proceeds from her recent six shows in Europe and her remaining 30 dates later this year are added in, Billboard predicts Carrie will be in the $50-million ballpark.

That’s on par with her 2012-2013 Blown Away trek, which brought in $52 million, and her 2016 Storyteller dates, which made $58 million.

What’s impressive is that Carrie will still earn that much while playing considerably fewer dates on the Cry Pretty Tour.  She’s only doing 56 shows, as opposed to 106 on the Blown Away tour and 80 on Storyteller.

Carrrie’s outing with Runaway June and Maddie & Tae resumes September 10 in San Diego, California.
