Carrie Underwood Pays Tribute to Toby Keith With “Should Have Been a Cowboy”

Carrie Underwood is always pretty much flawless.

She continued her long streak of stellar vocal performances last night at The Grand Ole Opry with a tribute to the late, great Toby Keith with a pitch-perfect rendition of “Should Have Been a Cowboy”:


I love how Carrie can be pure Country one minute, Gospel the next, and then rip a Guns N’ Roses song to shreds.

Also, her legs are basically National Treasures.

I’m pretty sure Toby Keith would be proud!

Let’s be real, it’s a world better than Brooks and Dunn’s tribute at the CMT Awards last weekend:

Now, I LOVE me some B&D, but something was definitely off there. Sammy Hagar honestly had the best tribute that night, and he’s not even a little bit Country.

Hey, we all have our bad nights, right?

But yeah, Carrie Underwood, though.

Kind of rude that she gets that voice AND those legs, though.

I kid.

Mostly.

Carrie Underwood Pays Tribute to George Michael

Carrie Underwood never fails at a live performance.

Especially when it’s honoring one of her heroes, the late George Michael.

On Friday night, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony was held, and George Michael was recieving a posthumous honor of being one of this year’s inductees. Carrie Underwood has always been a fan, and had in several interviews mentioned that George was her dream collab.  So, in a way, that dream got realized Friday night when Carrie honored him with a version of his song “One More Try”, and she just nailed it, as always.


Dayummmm, girl…

Such an incredible talent.

Also, I need her leg workout routine. I really need to start hitting the gym again…

A few other notable performances from Friday night’s ceremoney:

Willie Nelson and Chris Stapleton:

Sheryl Crow and Olivia Rodrigo:

Missy Elliot!!!


Those are just a few of the performances, and I can’t wait to see them on the actual broadcast! That will be airing on Jan 1st on ABC.

Carrie Underwood ROCKS!

There really is no end to Carrie Underwood’s talents.

She got to open up for Guns N’ Roses over the weekend in Canada over the past weekend, and naturally, she added some Rock covers into her setlist and she pretty much killed it on everything from Motorhead to Led Zeppelin.

Check it out!

Motorhead: “Ace of Spades”

Led Zeppelin “Rock and Roll”

Joan Jett “Bad Reputation”

Pat Benetar “Hit Me With Your Best Shot”

Rolling Stones “Wild Horses”

Not too shabby, right?

It’s just fun to see this side of Carrie- who usually gives major Country Barbie Vibes- and see her let loose and get her rock on.  She can totally handle it vocally and performance wise.

As a Rock and Country fan, color me impressed!

Honestly, I prefer this side of Carrie, as opposed to a lot of her Country music of late.

Can we get a Rock album next?

I’d so be down.

Or at least a Carrie/Axl collab on a song.

Come on, universe. Make it happen!

 

 

Are These The Best Female Country Singers of All Time?

A new study by Studyfinds.com shows the “Best Female Country Singers of All Time”, and I’m really not gonna argue this one.

 

The List: Best Female Country Singers of All Time, Per Critics and Fans

 

1. Dolly Parton
The top spot on the list goes to perhaps the most influential country singer ever, Dolly Parton. This famous blondie appeared in the top spot across 70 percent of the sites referenced. Dolly isn’t just known for having one of the best amusement parks in the South, but her iconic status as one of the best in country will last long after she’s gone.

2. Loretta Lynn
The Coal Miner’s Daughter was the clear choice for second. Simply put, Loretta Lynn is a country music icon.

3. Reba McEntire
The red-headed country legend appeared on 70 percent of the sites we referenced and for good reason. Reba is recognizable by her first name alone, and that notoriety even helped her land her own TV show. Through it all, Reba has remained true to her country music roots.

4. Patsy Cline
Patsy Cline is responsible for some of the most iconic country music songs of all time and is beyond deserving of her place as one of the best.

Cline recorded these hits before she was lost in a tragic plane crash.

5. Carrie Underwood 
The former ‘American Idol’ winner is one of the most decorated female singers of all time. “… Underwood has maintained her chart-topping success. Her career has gone on for nearly two decades, earning her over a hundred awards from various organizations, which has given Underwood the outstanding title of the most awarded country singer of all time.”

Honorable Mention: Miranda Lambert.  I just think they should have put her somewhere in there because, well, she’s a badass!

Axl Rose and Carrie Underwood Rocking Out!

I’m really envious of Carrie Underwood.

Not just those pipes and those legs, but getting to perform with Axl Rose (One of my Rock Idols) several times recently? I mean, DAMN, girl.

#RESPECT

I love that Carrie has this side of her. I always wrote her off as a prissy girly-girl, but damn can she rock.  Turns out she’s a big fan of Classic Rock and metal, and she can certainly deliver the goods.

It’s really cool to see the “other” side of Carrie.  This combined with her love of fitness and red wine, well, hot damn, maybe we can be friends after all!  She’s been gaining some serious cool points with me lately.

 

Oooohhhh… maybe a Rock album is in her future?

I would support the fire out of that.

 

New Carrie Underwood Is Here!

Carrie Underwood is back with new music today! It’s been a few years since she’s released a solo Country single, so I was curious to hear what she had for us this morning.

I was NOT disappointed.

I actually think this is one of my favorite of hers. Way better than that “Southbound” mess she put out a few years ago.  Carrie is a true vocalist, and I like her better on either ballads, or haunting songs like this.  The party/drinking songs…I just don’t buy it on her.

Anyhow, after hearing this new single, I’m excited to hear what else she’s got for us this year.
