Carrie Underwood is ‘Drinking Alone’, Miranda Lambert sings from her wedding site, while Brad Paisley and Darius Rucker team up for a rendition of ‘Wagon Wheel’ and pay tribute to the late Kenny Rogers.
AceShowbiz -Country music stars have joined forces to entertain their fans as they continue to stay at home amid the coronavirus crisis. On Monday, April 6, the likes of Shania Twain, Lady Antebellum, Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani took part in “ACM Presents: Our Country”, which aired in place of the now-postponed 2020 Academy of Country Music Awards.
Luke kicked off the show with an uplifting performance of “Most People Are Good” from his comfy couch. Dressed in a white button-down shirt, he played acoustic guitar as he crooned the optimistic lyrics, “I believe this world ain’t half as bad as it looks/ I believe most people are good.”
Shania, meanwhile, serenaded her horses as she took the camera into her stable for her performances of “Honey I’m Home” and one of her hits “Man! I Feel Like a Woman”. At one point, her horse got a little too attentive, rubbing against her face and licking her strings as she was singing. Being a professional as she is, the 54-year-old kept singing while smiling.
Miranda, on the other hand, was surrounded by serenity as she sang from her farm in Tennessee. “I actually got married right here,” she said of the place. Miranda sat on her porch while delivering a rendition of “Bluebird” and playing her guitar.
Brad Paisley and Darius Rucker connected via FaceTime for a duet of “Wagon Wheel”. Brad was seated on his truck bed with an acoustic guitar while Darius sang from his front porch in Charleston, S.C. They also paid tribute to the late Kenny Rogers, who passed away in March, with a cover of “Lucille” and “The Gambler”. Earlier, Brad belted out his feel-good song “Mud On the Tires”.
Carrie aptly sang her song “Drinking Alone” as she talked about surviving while in home quarantine. “Now we have to find things to do when we’re alone together,” she said from her living room. “We’re not really alone. We are alone together, and this is exactly how we’re going to get through this mess.”
Lady Antebellum was not alone as the members enlisted their children while socially distancing at their respective homes. Dedicating their single “What I’m Leaving For” to the doctors, nurses, first responders and everyone in the medical field on the frontlines of the coronavirus, they were joined by their kids to deliver the poignant ballad. Charles Kelley sang with his son Ward on his lap, Dave Haywood‘s son Cash sat behind his guitar before the boy stole the show by making some funny faces in front of the cameras.
Blake and Gwen, who are quarantining together, delivered their duet “Nobody But You” from their home in Oklahoma. “We’re happy to be in Oklahoma hiding away … drinking all day,” Blake jokingly said as he gave an update of their live while in self-isolation.
Keith Urban sang “Wasted Time”, which he said has taken on a different meaning in the midst of the coronavirus crisis, Thomas Rhett sang his new song “Be a Light”, which lyrics deliver a message of togetherness, while Kane Brown and John Legend joined forces for a television debut of their new duet “Last Time I Say Sorry”.
Other artists taking part in the two-hour television special included Tim McGraw, Sheryl Crown, Dierks Bentley, Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett and Brandi Carlile among others.
