Maddie & Tae's Madison Marlow and Taylor Dye put a lot of work into their show, even before the Cry Pretty Tour 360 opening night.

"We hired a creative director," Dye previously shared with and other media. "We knew that with a stage like this and having 35 minutes, we needed to utilize every second that we could. and utilize every bit of the stage. Carrie's awesome and allowed us to use basically all of the stage and all of the lights. She really set us up to have a great show, but we'd never done anything like it, so we hired a creative director. From the moment we started working with him, it was so much more than just the show."

Underwood's final show takes place in Detroit, Michigan. Her next scheduled appearance is on Nov. 13, when she will host the 2019 CMA Awards, as well as perform. Underwood is also nominated for three trophies, including the night's highest honor, Entertainer of the Year. The show will air live on Wednesday, Nov. 13, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
