Carrie Underwood looked fear in the face...and won. Over the weekend (Dec. 11), the superstar and her crew took to the skies over Sydney, Australia to do some free falling. "I just went skydiving. That just happened," she said in a compilation clip of her day (below). Taking a day off from touring as part of Keith Urban's Ripcord World Tour in the Land Down Under, the Okie did not even flinch when jumping from a plane 14,000 feet above the earth's surface.
After the high-flying adventure, the 33-year-old and team were awarded colorful certificates for participation. "It's official. I have proof that I did it. That's me..." she points to her married name, Carrie Fisher.
Throughout the day, Underwood took to Instagram and Twitter to document her adventure--her first time ever skydiving, FYI, and she appeared rather nonchalant about the whole thing. "How are you feeling?" her instructor asked. "I don't know..." she quipped, suiting up into her skydiving gear. In another clip, Underwood teased her fans about the day's escape with some well-known pop hits, John Denver's "I'm Leaving on a Jet Plane" and The Pointer Sisters' "Jump (for My Love)." Later on, her band and backstage crew joined in for a rousing version of Tom Petty's on-the-noise hit "Free Falling."
"When the boss says 'jump,' you say 'how high,'" one band member joked.
Check out a slew of photos and videos of the adventure below.
Hot off the heels of her wildly successful Storyteller Tour, Underwood reclaimed her illustrious Female Vocalist of the Year trophy at last month's 50th CMA Awards after an eight-year drought. Last week, she scored another Grammy nomination for Best Country Solo Performance for her boisterous "Church Bells" story-song, a cut from 2015's Storyteller LP.
Later this week, Urban and Underwood play three more shows. Check out the final tour dates:
Dec. 14 - ICC Sydney Theatre - Sydney Australia
Dec. 16 - Entertainment Centre - Brisbane, Australia
Dec. 17 - Entertainment Centre - Brisbane, Australia
