When Grammy-winning singer Carrie Underwood gets her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles on Sept. 20, the guest speakers will be two people who have been major participants in her TV career—former "American Idol" judge Simon Cowell and Underwood's longtime CMA Awards co-host Brad Paisley. Underwood was the winner of "American Idol" in 2005, and Cowell was a judge on the show from 2002 to 2010.
It's Cowell's second time at a Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony this year. He received his own Hollywood Walk of Fame star on Aug. 13. The Walk of Fame ceremony
Underwood and Paisley are co-hosting the CMA Awards again this year, with the ceremony taking place Nov. 14 at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena. ABC will have the U.S. telecast of the show.
Underwood's Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony will take place at 11:30 a.m. PT in front of the Capitol Records building at 1750 N. Vine Street. After spending most of her career at Sony Music, Underwood signed to Universal Music's Capitol Nashville in 2017. Her first Capitol Nashville album, Cry Pretty, is set for release Sept. 14. She recently shared lyric videos for album tracks for "Love Wins" and "End Up With You." The "Love Wins" video premiered on Apple Music. Underwood embarks on a North American tour in 2019 in support of the album. As previously reported, the tour was postponed to begin after she gives birth to her second child.
