Who doesn’t know Carrie Underwood’s story: A farm girl from rural Oklahoma suddenly swept in front of every camera for winning a televised singing competition? Not everyone, however, has read about her Checotah Animal, Town and School Foundation, which purchased music instruments for her old high school, funded her hometown’s spay/neuter program for the animal shelter (which she also built) and shared in installing playground equipment at a town park. Oklahoma still loves Carrie, who has set a new pace and style for country music beyond her American Idol win in 2005. Carrie’s Blown Away Tour hits T-Town Nov. 21 for a 7:30 p.m. show at the BOK Center, 200 S. Denver Ave. Of every ticket sold, $1 will go to the American Red Cross for disaster relief. With prices running $46-$66, that’s sure to be a much appreciated gift. For more, go to www.bokcenter.com. Visit www.okmag.com for a chance to win tickets.
