First Photo of Carrie Underwood in ‘The Sound of Music’


Carrie Underwood will be starring as Maria von Trapp in a NBC adaptation of The Sound of Music … and the first photo of her in costume is here!

The promotional poster for the live event has just been revealed and Carrie is rocking puffed sleeves and a corseted dress just like the beloved character made famous by Julie Andrews.

It’s no surprise the country singer managed to land a role in this iconic musical because not only does she have an amazing voice, but previous acting experience. In 2010, Carrie guest-starred on How I Met Your Mother and later in 2011, in the film, Soul Surfer

The live show, which also stars True Blood‘s Stephen Moyer as Georg von Trapp, will also have a supporting casts of Broadway stars, including Audra McDonald, Laura Benanti, and Christian Borle.

The Sound of Music is set to air live at 8/7c on December 5. Which song are you most excited to see Carrie and the rest of the cast perform?
