“Lip to lip,” the 12-year-old fan instructed country superstar Carrie Underwood in Louisville, Kentucky. It was during the 2012 Blown Away Tour when Underwood lived up to the tour’s title by giving an onstage smooch to young fan Chase Kurnick.
The lucky boy was spotted in the front row holding a sign that read, “Carrie, Be My First Kiss.” The generous star decided to make Kurnick’s dreams come true and invited him up for a quick peck. Needless to say, the audience went wild.
After admitting that her first kiss was at the age of 14, Underwood playfully warned that “her husband [Nashville Predators player Mike Fisher] might be looking for him later.” That did not deter the eager fan from getting what he asked for.
“That’s the only time that is ever going to happen!” Underwood told the audience and Kurnick, whom she dubbed “the smartest kid ever.” Not only was the very public smooch an unforgettably sweet moment, but it afforded Kurnick lifelong bragging rights about an epic first kiss.
Visiting 110 cities across three continents and six countries, Underwood’s Blown Away Tour wrapped with 112 shows — almost all of which were sold out. A million dollars of the tour’s proceeds were donated to American Red Cross disaster relief, after a tornado devastated Moore, Oklahoma, a city in Underwood’s home state.
