Carrie Underwood definitely knows how to steal a show! During Monday (April 11) night’s 2022 CMT Music Awards, the country queen and eight-time Grammy Award winner slayed the stage with a never-before-seen performance for her current track “Ghost Story.”

Kelsea Ballerini, who hosted the show from home after testing positive for COVID-19, introduced Underwood as an artist who has won the most CMT Music Awards in history and teased the audience about a soaring performance that’s about to happen.

Carrie Underwood Then Took The Audience To New Heights 

In a pre-recorded clip, Carrie Underwood looked dazzling in a glittery lavender bodysuit with tulle detail. She was joined by a whole cast of acrobatic dancers performing a routine in aerial silks as she sang her brand-new country pop ballad “Ghost Story” off her forthcoming album, Denim & Rhinestones.

The crowd quickly erupted in cheers as they witnessed Underwood delivering a pitch-perfect, powerful finale to her emotional ballad.

The recently filmed video was actually taken at Resorts World Theatre in Las Vegas, where Underwood has a residency in the place.

Meanwhile, this year’s CMT Music Awards was broadcasted live from its brand-new place, the historic Municipal Auditorium. In addition to Ballerini, Kane Brown and Anthony Mackie were also tapped to host the show.
