Carrie UnderwoodJulie Andrews

Carrie Underwood will be taking on a new role next year. NBC has just announced that Carrie will portray Maria Von Trapp in the three hour special broadcast of The Sound of Music. NBC is partnering with Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, the team that produced the network’s musical series Smash.

“We’re thrilled to be presenting the Broadway version of The Sound of Music live,” Zadan and Meron said in a press release announcing the production, “and having Carrie Underwood as the star brings it to a new generation who will fall in love with it for the first time as many millions of people already have. It’s a particular joy to us as producers to see this amazing artist stretch into new territory with this classic musical.”

Do you think Carrie will pull off the role made famous by the legendary Julie Andrews??

    My sorority sisters and I think it is great that Carrie landed the part and we know she will do it justice as she has great work ethics and works hard at anything she does. It was AMAZING that Christopher Plummer, the cast of Sound of Music, Rodgers & Hammerstein, etc. endorsed choosing Carrie and they all think she was the RIGHT choice and will be great. They all feel she has so much in common with Maria (the real Maria) and they love her vocals. She will represent country music great as she does in everything she does. The country music industry needs to start doing right by her. SHE is the face of country music and she is the first name spoken when we talk about country music. We love her on campus.
