SAN JOSE (CBS News) – Carrie Underwood has announced dates for her fall tour, which kicks off Sept. 14 in Manchester, N.H., and makes her way to the HP Pavilion in San Jose on October 14.

Singer/guitarist Hunter Hayes will serve as the tour’s opening act. Tickets go on sale starting May 11. Underwood will donate a dollar from each ticket sold on the North American leg to the Red Cross.

The “American Idol” alum will be on the road behind her fourth album, “Blown Away,” released Tuesday. She co-wrote eight of the set’s 14 songs, including “Cupid’s Got A Shotgun,” featuring Brad Paisley on guitar.

She wrote a few of the songs with Josh Kear, known for several hits, including Underwood’s “Before He Cheats” and Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now.”

“When you go in to write, you have to be willing to sound stupid,” Underwood, 29, told the Associated Press. “Before you have a chance to think about something, you blurt it out and it doesn’t make any sense, and everybody gets a good laugh out of it. You can’t be afraid to sound completely dumb when you go to write.”

Underwood said she’s looking forward to taking the new songs on the road.

 
“I can’t wait to get back out on the road and perform new music from my new album for my fans,” she said in a statement. “We have a lot of exciting things planned!”
