As always, Carrie Underwood killed it with her look at the CMT Music Awards on June 9. Carrie always brings her A-game at award shows, and this was no different. The country superstar skipped the red carpet, but looked like a superstar when she took the stage with NeedToBreathe from the Bonnaroo farm. Carrie and the band duetted on their song “I Wanna Remember,” and they absolutely killed it.

For the performance, Carrie wore a white pantsuit, along with a chunky black belt around her midsection. The belt had a moon engraved into the middle of it, and Carrie completed the look with black shoes to match. Her hair was in simple curls and parted down the middle, while her silver eye makeup went perfectly with the sparkly, celestial look. As always, her powerful voice was her best accessory on stage as she belted out the song.

Carrie has been loyal to the CMT Awards since the very start of her career. At her very first CMT Awards ceremony in 2006, she actually took home two awards — Breakthrough Video of the Year and Female Video of the Year. Since then, she’s won at the show 20 more times, and has been nominated plenty more. Carrie actually has the most wins in CMT Music Awards hisotory!
In 2021, she scored two more nominations for her song “Hallelujah” with John Legend. The song is up for Video of the Year, and was one of four finalists left in the running based on fan votes leading up to the show. “Hallelujah” was also nominated for Collaborative Video of the Year, but lost to Kane Brown and Chris Young.
Although Carrie hasn’t released an album with all original music since 2018’s Cry Pretty, she’s been hard at work in the studio recently. In 2020, she released her first Christmas album called My Gift. She followed it up with a gospel record called My Savior in March 2021. In December of this year, Carrie will begin her Las Vegas residency, in collaboration with Resorts World Las Vegas, as well.
