Carrie Underwood’s Great Performance featuring Vince Gill

It is not that common for a country artist to have Vince Gill as their background guitarist. But for Carrie Underwood, he would make an exception as she belts out one of the most loved hymns of all time. Carrie started the performance with an already high note that she was able to sustain until the end. Right before the end of the performance, Gill had to show his amazing guitar skills for some time.

Carrie continued to amaze the audience with her performance. She was able to show the emotions of the song even while belting out some of the notes. By the end of it, the audience had no choice but to give her a standing ovation. Some of the audience include Blake Shelton, The Judds sisters, and Martina McBride.
