The ACM Awards were supposed to take place on April 5 in Las Vegas. However, since the coronavirus has spread quickly throughout the country, the awards were postponed until September 16. But that didn’t stop the ACM from gathering country’s biggest stars to entertain us straight from their homes for the ACM Presents: Our Country special on CBS.
Carrie Underwood was one of those artists who shared some encouraging words and her powerful voice right from her couch.
“Hey everybody, I am sorry we can’t all be together in person tonight but I’m glad we could still find ways to be connected and to celebrate community and healing power of music,” Carrie said. “So let’s continue to support each other an stay strong until we can all be together again.

“But right now we have to find things to do while we are alone together, right? I have an idea,” she says sipping from her glass of wine. “So this song seems to be striking a chord, more than ever with a lot of you these days, especially while so many of us are riding things out at home. Just remember thought we are not really alone. We are alone together. And that is exactly how we are going to get through this mess. ”
As Carrie hit play on her computer to begin the background music, she belted out her current single “Drinking Alone,” a song apropos for the times as it’s something we are doing in these quarantine days.
After the moving performance, Carrie grabbed her glass of wine and said “Cheers” to the camera.
