Carrie Underwood flew above the entire crowd and descended onto the stage at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California, making the perfect, stunning entrance for her empowering anthem, “Crazy Angels,” at the 2022 American Music Awards. The song is one of the biggest from Underwood’s latest album Denim & Rhinestones, which released earlier this year. “Crazy Angels” stirs the desire to let loose and have fun:
“Yes, I'm one of those crazy angels/ Tilted halo with a neon shine/ Call me one of those crazy angels/ Even good girls wanna have a good time/ Heaven knows I'm flying low tonight”
Underwood’s jaw-dropping, aerobatic entrance is a signature moment from her ongoing “Denim & Rhinestones Tour,” which kicked off last month. Underwood just wrapped up her 2022 tour dates with her performance in San Francisco, California on Saturday (November 19). The powerhouse “Hate My Heart” singer-songwriter will kick off the second leg of her tour on February 2 in Miami, Florida, along with special guest, fellow country superstar Jimmie Allen.
Allen introduced Underwood to the AMA stage with host Wayne Brady on Sunday evening (November 20), leading into his introduction of the 17-time AMA winner with a soulful tribute to the late Loretta Lynn. Lynn, a beloved country music legend credited with blazing trails for women in music, passed away peacefully last month at her ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, her family confirmed. She was 90. Underwood recently teamed up with Miranda Lambert and Reba McEntire for a beautiful tribute performance to Lynn at the 56th annual Country Music Association Awards earlier this month in Nashville, Tennessee.
When she performed at the AMA awards on Sunday evening, Underwood rocked the performance with Las Vegas-worthy elements and power. In addition to being in the midst of her 43-city nationwide “Denim & Rhinestones Tour,” Underwood is expected to continue her smash-hit Vegas residency next year. This year, the show at Resorts World Theater marked 18 sold-out performances, according to her record label. Underwood previously shared that everything she’s learned from her Vegas residency (and Vegas-worthy performances), “only makes me a better performer and artist.”
