Carrie Underwood proved she doesn't need a big stage to deliver a powerful performance. During the ACM Presents: Our Country special on Sunday (April 5), Underwood delivered a flawless performance of her current single, "Drinking Alone."
"This song actually seems to be striking a chord, more than ever with a lot of you these days, especially while so many of us are riding things out at home," Underwood said from the couch of her Nashville home. "Just remember though, we're not really alone. We are alone together. And that is exactly how we're gonna get through this mess."
The country star then raised her glass of red wine to fans before singing the bluesy tune. Watch Underwood's jaw-dropping virtual performance below.
ACM Presents: Our Country replaces the 55th Annual ACM Awards which were postponed due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Blake Shelton, Tim McGraw, Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, Thomas Rhett and more were other artists featured on the special as well.
The 2020 ACM Awards will now take place a few months later on Wednesday, September 16. The rescheduling moves the event from its typical Sunday night to a Wednesday night, although the ceremony will still air live on CBS at 8PM ET. Country star, Keith Urban, is still set to host the ACM Awards on the new date.
In years past, the ACM Awards have usually taken place in Las Vegas, Nevada. This year, however, the location has yet to be confirmed. Further details including venue and performers will be announced in the coming weeks.
