SiriusXM announced that eight-time GRAMMY® Award winner Carrie Underwood, will launch an exclusive year-round SiriusXM channel, CARRIE’S COUNTRY, in June.

CARRIE’S COUNTRY will be a musical journey hand-crafted by country’s iconic rhinestoned superstar.

Listeners will also hear high-octane favorites from classic to hard rock for your morning exercise or your late-night jam sessions.

In addition to Underwood’s own extensive hit-filled catalogue, SiriusXM subscribers will hear music from Keith Urban, Dolly Parton, Brad Paisley, and Miranda Lambert to AC/DC, Guns N’ Roses, and The Rolling Stones.
“I’m thrilled to partner with SiriusXM on my new channel,” says Underwood. “I can’t wait to welcome listeners into my personal musical universe, sharing my favorite music across all of the genres I love, from classic rock to the latest in country.”
“Carrie Underwood is one of country music’s biggest and most multi-faceted artists today, and to collaborate with her on her very own SiriusXM channel is truly special,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer. “CARRIE’S COUNTRY will give listeners and fans the opportunity to connect with her on a new level, beyond her musical choices and influences, as she curates the channel’s programming. We welcome her to the SiriusXM family as we continue to expand our country music offerings to our subscribers.”
CARRIE’S COUNTRY original programming will include monthly themed shows, morning workout and late-night hard-rock blocks, as well as Savior Sunday – a full day of inspirational music including Carrie’s own gospel catalogue, country titles, and more of the music that is close to her heart.
