Seven-time Grammy winner and 2-time ACM Entertainer of the Year Carrie Underwood and three-time Grammy winner and a CMA Entertainer of the Year Brad Paisley performed together for the Grand Ole Opry’s 4,940th consecutive Saturday night broadcast on Sept 5.
Carrie opened the show with her six-week #1 debut single “Jesus, Take The Wheel” and spoke of the honor she felt to be on the Opry stage and that the circle is still unbroken. The American Idol season 4 winner went on to perform many of her hits including “Dirty Laundry” and “I Told You So.” Brad performed his new single “No I In Beer” and several other hits as well as duetting with Carrie on “Whiskey Lullaby,” “Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man,” and their hit “Remind Me.”
Before the closing song, Brad said, “These times are so unique, and I find it so inspiring that the Opry is still going. When all is said and done, we will never take for granted getting to come out here and sing again. For me, as long as the Opry keeps going, I have hope!” The pair closed the show with “Will the Circle Be Unbroken.”
Carrie and Brad have been friends since touring together early in Carrie’s career. The two country superstars went on to an 11-year run as one of the most popular and successful hosting duos in CMA Awards history. Brad has been an Opry member since 2001 and Carrie has been an Opry member since 2008.
