If it wasn’t for Carole Underwood’s seven important words to her daughter, we may not have had the pleasure of enjoying the powerhouse vocals of Carrie Underwood for the past decade and a half.
The singer brought her mom out as a surprise guest, introducing Carole to the crowd before asking her, “Is there anything you want to say to these fine people?” The singer’s mom turned to the audience and said, “I’m so happy you’re here and I hope you enjoy the show.”
From there, the two Underwoods launched into a duet performance of “All-American Girl,” Carrie’s chart-topping hit from 2007, which appears on the track list of her second studio album, Carnival Ride. The song demands stellar vocal control and plenty of belted-out high notes, but Carole more than kept up, even taking some of the lines solo, with her superstar daughter pulling away from the mic to let her mom take the spotlight.
And as stunning as Carrie is, it is Carole’s charming presence on stage that breaths new life into the song.
That’s one mother-daughter moment to be remembered. Not just by Carrie and Carole, but by everyone else in attendance that night. After all, moms are the best.
