Carrie Underwood still remains to be one of the best female country singers of her time. Even though we catch her singing her original song or see her cover a classic track from a legendary singer, she definitely knows how to deliver it in a way that captivates her audience. We can, therefore, say that Underwood is also a legend in the country music industry.
We have known her from her glory days at the American Idol and her classic hits like “Jesus, Take the Wheel,” “Before He Cheats,” and a lot more. However, Underwood is more to that because she can deliver a wonderful classic hit, giving her own spin to it while making us appreciate it like the original version.

In 2012, Underwood was invited by the Grand Ole Opry to perform on their stage and she chose to sing one of Alan Jackson‘s greatest hits, “Remember When.” She began by saying that Jackson was one of her idols, and she dreamed of singing with him on stage or perform a song of his. She even mentioned that Jackson’s concert was the first one she attended and she was inspired by him.

The Original Version of “Remember When”
“Remember When” is known to be one of Jackson’s signature songs. It reached the top of the chart in early 2000. He wrote the song taking inspiration from his marriage.
Remember when I was young and so were you
And time stood still and love was all we knew
You were the first, so was I
We made love and then you cried
Despite the fact that the two had been through a lot in life that even led to an almost end to their marriage, Alan and Denise, with the help of God, stood firm. Hence, making their marriage strong than it was ever before.
