Carrie Underwood sang a Patty Loveless song as a child: Look – Billboard


Carrie Underwood is a country music powerhouse, but she’s also been a lifelong country music fan, as evidenced by a throwback video the star shared of one of her childhood performances.

The clip begins with a performance by Underwood as a child, singing Patty Loveless’ 1993 classic “Blame It on Your Heart.” Meanwhile, Underwood’s outfit, which included black pants paired with a black and white shirt, gives off 90s Garth Brooks vibes. The music video then cuts to footage of Underwood performing the same song Loveless as as an adult on the Grand Ole Opry stage.

“How it started -> How it’s going,” Underwood captioned the clip, alongside a push for the next special Opry Live: Opry loves the 90s, which will air Saturday (July 23) at 8 p.m. CT on Circle All Access, as well as on YouTube and Facebook. The special will feature performances from Underwood, Jimmie Allen, Kelsea Ballerini, Breland, Deana Carter, Cody Johnson, Midland, Keith Urban, Lainey Wilson and Chris Young, all performing 90s country classics.

Of course, this is far from the first time that Underwood has done a classic country justice. At the 2020 Academy of Country Music Awards, Underwood celebrated the Opry’s 95th anniversary with a medley of “Crazy” by Patsy Cline, “You Ain’t Woman Enough (To Take My Man)” by Loretta Lynn, “I Was Country When Country” by Barbara Mandrell. It Wasn’t Cool”, “Why’d You Come in Here Lookin’ Like That” by Dolly Parton, “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia” by Reba McEntire and “A Broken Wing” by Martina McBride.

During her 2019 Cry Pretty Tour 360, Underwood teamed up with show openers Runaway June and Maddie & Tae for a medley honoring iconic female country music artists, with the performance including songs made famous by Tammy Wynette, Cline, Lynn, The Judds, Trisha Yearwood and more.

In 2010, Underwood performed the Brooks & Dunn classic “Neon Moon” as part of ACM presents: Brooks & Dunn.

“I remember the day I discovered one of my sister’s Brooks & Dunn tapes…you helped shape so many of us as artists,” she told the duo before the spectacle. “This song I’m going to do now is the one I’ve been singing since I was 8 years old.”

Underwood previously collaborated with Willie Nelson on his classic “Always on My Mind,” from his 2013 album To all the girls… and fresh out of her american idol victory in 2005, Underwood performed alongside Jamie O’Neal to cover the McEntire/Linda Davis classic “Does He Love You” as part of the CMT special 100 greatest duos. While she Idol run, Underwood has also covered many country songs, including hits by Jo Dee Messina, Shania Twain, McBride and more.

Underwood also earned a Top 5 Country Airplay Hit in 2009 with his rendition of “I Told You So”, a previous chart topper for Randy Travis in 1988. Underwood and Travis also had a collaborative version of the hit.
