Despite its use in almost every description of her, the term “girl next door” just seems to go hand-in-hand with Carrie Underwood. Radiating the kind of uncanny likeability that can only be outmatched by her drop-dead gorgeous looks, the Muskogee, Okla., native has been on a professional tear since winning the fourth season of “American Idol” in 2005. With the kind of country pipes that evoke comparisons to Faith Hill and Martina McBride, Underwood is only three albums into her career and has achieved multiplatinum status, numerous Grammy Awards, induction into the Grand Ole Opry, and Entertainer of the Year honors from the Academy of County Music. Sure to sing plenty of her Billboard-topping hits such as “Before He Cheats,” “Last Name” and her most recent single, “Cowboy Casanova,” Underwood — you're still staring at the picture, aren't you? — is scheduled to perform at the Richmond Coliseum on Tuesday, April 27, at 7:30 p.m. $35-$55.
