Dolly Parton offered a sweet message about Carrie UnderwoodThe inner values before the star took the stage at the Academy of Country Music Awards 2021.
During the award ceremony on Sunday, April 18, the 75-year-old singing legend gave a sentimental introduction to the former DSDS winner. Dolly in particular took note of Carrie’s personal values, including her beliefs.
“I’ve always admired Carrie’s incredible talent, but I’m just as impressed with her personal qualities: her compassion, kindness, generosity, and most importantly, the strong faith we both share,” said Dolly. “Now your appearance today speaks for your confidence in a medley from their new gospel anthem album My Savior, which I know is a real passion project for you.”
Carrie, 38, wore a beautifully shimmering dress and started a solo rendition of “Amazing Grace” before introducing the legend CeCe Winans to join her for “Great is your loyalty”. Carrie then ended the medley with “How Great Thou Art,” which was highlighted by a stunning series of closing notes.
