There is nothing that Carrie Underwood can’t put her spell on. Every time she opens her mouth to sing a song, she gives justice to it. Nobody who hears Underwood sing walks away. Instead, they’ll listen to her until the end of the song.
Underwood can always turn a song into something everyone will love to hear all the time. Her performance of “How Great Thou Art” will evoke emotions in you that you don’t want to face.
She performed the song many times, but there are three significant performances of “How Great Thou Art” she did.
Carrie Underwood’s Grand Ole Opry Performance
First, her 2008 performance at the Grand Ole Opry. It was recorded and turned into an album, together with other artists performing. The show named How Great Thou Art: Gospel Favorites from the Grand Ole Opry invited artists such as Alan Jackson, Loretta Lynn, Vince Gill, and many more.
The album had reached the top ten of the Billboard Christian chart. Furthermore, it secured a spot on the Top Country Albums chart too.
“How Great Thou Art” with Vince Gill
Another performance of “How Great Thou Art” she did was with Gill. She performed the song during the ACM’s Girls’ Night Out Superstar Women of Country in 2011. First, Gill performed Underwood’s award-winning song “Jesus takes the Wheel,” and she followed it with a standing ovation performance of “How Great Thou Art.”
Elvis Tribute Concert
Her latest performance of this classic gospel song was last February. She performed Elvis Presley‘s famous cover of “How Great Thou Art” as a tribute to him. The performance happened live at NBC. When she was asked how it feels like to sing a song for The King, Underwood says that it was an honor to do so.
“I’m honored to be in that because that’s something that I do as well in my music and that’s one thing that I love about Elvis is, he was the King of Rock N’ Roll but there was so much country in what did and he had the gospel thing too.”
We can all agree that no matter how many times Underwood performs the song, she always sounds great.
