Carrie Underwood pays tribute to Dolly Parton and other country queens at the ACM Awards


Carrie Underwood has become one of the biggest names in country music since winning season four of American Idol in 2005.

And the seven-time Grammy winner has often shown his appreciation for the women he encountered.

She paid tribute to Dolly Parton, Patterson Cline and other queens in the country on Wednesday as she performed a medley of hits at the 55th Academy of Country Music Awards.

‘They are some of my heroes, and I am honored to stand with them as a fellow member of the Grand Ole Opry. It is my pleasure to pay tribute to these legendary women as we celebrate the 95th anniversary of the Opry. ‘

Carrie launched in Cline’s Crazy, before transitioning to Loretta Lynn’s You Ain’t Woman Enough, Barbara Mandrell’s I Was Country when the country wasn’t cool and Parton’s why you’d come here.

Carrie took to Instagram before the show, as she had rollers in her hair, while Carrie was getting her line from CALIA dressed up in some leopard-print leggings, writing: ‘Getting ready for tonight! Let’s do that, @ACMawards! ‘

After a five-month delay, in the midst of the global COVID-19 epidemic, this year’s show was moved from Las Vegas to Nashville for the first time with no live audience.

Artists such as Carrie hit the stage at three prestigious venues for country music, including the Grand Ole Opry, Raman Auditorium and Bluebird Cafe.
