Attending the unveiling of her wax figure at Madame Tussauds Museum in New York City on Wednesday, October 22, Carrie Underwood said she's honored and excited to be present at the event.
Getting wax treatment, Carrie Underwood helped to unveil her likeness at Madame Tussauds Museum in New York City on Wednesday, October 22. The "American Idol" alum even posed side-by-side with her wax likeness, which was put on the VIP Room.
"I am honored to have been asked to pose for a Madame Tussauds wax figure as this is truly a once in a lifetime experience," Underwood said in a statement. She then added, "I am really excited to attend my unveiling today."
Underwood was in the middle of a tour when she was approached by a team of Madame Tussauds studio artists for the so-called "figure sitting," which took more than an hour to make. She also donated a replica of the dress that she wore to the 2006 Country Music Association Awards to be worn by her wax figure. The dress was designed by Trish Townsend and constructed by Dez Zamek.
On Tuesday, October 21, Underwood released a holiday edition of her album "Carnival Ride." The holiday version is a two-disc package, which in addition to the original album, includes a second disc containing five Christmas popular songs, four of which are previously unreleased.
