Carrie Underwood has returned to her Resorts World Las Vegas REFLECTION residency this month. And on Sunday (March 27) the American Idol season 4 winner invited mom Carole to sing on stage with her.
The two had a sentimental moment together as they dueted on the country superstar’s 2007 hit “All American Girl.”
“You held that out a long time,” Carrie complimented her mother as she belted out the song’s final note. The two ended the performance with a hug. “You take care of her!” Carrie instructed a stage person as her mother left the stage.
Carrie shared photos of the moment on social media, remembering how her mother encouraged her to audition for American Idol. “’If you wanna go, I’ll take you.’ These might have been the most pivotal words anyone has ever spoken to me,” Carrie wrote. “I was busy talking myself out of trying out for American Idol and my mom said these words…the rest is history.” After winning American Idol in 2005, Carrie’s country music career took off like a rocket with her first big hit, “Before He Cheats.”
“Tonight, I got to sing with her on stage in front of the most incredible crowd in #LasVegas,” Carrie continued. “Life sure is amazing! Thanks, Mom, for everything! @resortsworldlv #REFLECTION: @jeffjohnsonimages”

Watch a fan video of Carrie and her mother singing “All American Girl” below. It’s cute, because Carrie obviously didn’t inherit her singing talent from mom. Maybe her dad can sing!
Carrie recently released a new single “Ghost Story”
The singer returned to Las Vegas March 23 for the second run of REFLECTION: The Las Vegas Residency at the Resorts World Theatre, having opened the new 5,000-capacity, world-class theatre with six sold-out shows in December.
Carrie conceived the show to celebrate some of the highlights of her recording and touring career over the years, celebrating her greatest hits from over 15 years as an award-winning singer.
Earlier this month, Carrie released her latest single “Ghost Story.” Josh Kear, Hillary Lindsey and David Garcia co-wrote the tune. David Garcia and Carrie and co-produced.
