Carrie Underwood belts out “Alone” as she opens for Guns N’ Roses

American Idol fans were treated to a blast form the past when season 4 winner Carrie Underwood performed her game-changing competition song, “Alone” by Heart during her concert on Saturday (Aug 6).

Reprising the monster 80’s rock anthem made sense, as the country superstar opened for Guns N’ Roses on Saturday (Aug 6) at Croix-Bleue Medavie Stadium in Moncton, NB, Canada.

When Carrie performed “Alone” on American Idol, it proved that she was more than just a country singer, and she could belt a rock n’ roll classic, matching some of the best rock vocalists out there. The Nashville singer has always been a hard rock fan, and when she finally shared the stage with Axl Rose a few years ago, it was a dream come true for her.

Carrie covered a handful of rock anthems

Carrie covered a handful of rock classics, including Joan Jett’s “Bad Reputation,” Pat Benatar’s “Hit Me with Your Best Shot,” The Rolling Stone’s “Wild Horses,” Led Zeppelin’s “Rock and Roll,” and Motörhead’s “Ace of Spades.”

Carrie’s 18-song set also featured performances of “Last Name,” “Undo It,” “Church Bells,” “Blown Away,” “Flat On The Floor,” “Somethin’ Bad,” and “Before He Cheats.” 

And she performed a handful of tunes from her upcoming album, Denim & Rhinestones (Deluxe Edition), including “Crazy Angels,” “Hate My Heart,” “Poor Everybody Else,” “Velvet Heartbreak” and “Out Of That Truck.”

“Just a country girl living out some rockstar dreams…”

Later, Carrie returned to the stage during Guns N’ Roses main set, joining them for duets of “Sweet Child of Mine” and “Paradise City.” Saturday night’s show is the first of three dates the Carrie is scheduled to play with Guns N’ Roses this summer. Next, she and the band hit Montreal on Tuesday (Aug. 8) and then her home turf Nashville on August 26.

“Just a country girl living out some rockstar dreams…” Carrie penned on Instagram alongside a gallery of photos. “I want to say a HUGE thanks to @gunsnroses for having us out on tour, as well as their amazing fans! I was super nervous playing for another band’s crowd (of a completely different genre, no less) but you all made us feel so welcome!!!”
