Carrie Underwood w/ Billy Currington and Sons of Sylvia

Oct. 17 Carrie Underwood w/ Billy Currington and Sons of Sylvia Qwest Center, 455 N. 10th St. 7:30 p.m., $35.50-$55.50 qwestcenteromaha.com Maybe it’s because I grew up listening to the Rebas of 1980s country music on the radio of my mom’s beat-up, blue Mustang, but I have a soft spot for Carrie Underwood. Originally I negatively snap-judged Underwood, after she flew up the fame ladder winning season four of “American Idol.” But when she sing-snarled about digging her keys into the side of her cheatin’ man’s ride, f***ing up his leather seats and famously wielding that Louisville slugger in “Before He Cheats,” all of the sudden I “got” her. She’s the type of strong, complex woman I love; she’ll shoot whiskey and pool with you at a dive bar, but make no mistake, she’s loaded with the class to balance all that sass.
