DETROIT LAKES, Minn. – Carrie Underwood traveled a long way to headline the final night at WE Fest, but not as far as one Vining, Minn., woman.
Karen Nyberg, who grew up an hour south of the Soo Pass Ranch, introduced the star from the International Space Station, high above the earth.
Underwood then hit the stage in a denim shirt, jeans and cowboy boots to “Good Girl."
