To celebrate Loretta Lynn's 50th Opry Anniversary, Carrie Underwood took the stage to perform Lynn's classic hit song, "You're Lookin' At Country", while the living legend herself was sitting in the audience, taking in the whole thing with a smile.
"You're Lookin' At Country" was released in 1971 on the album of the same name. It peaked at #5 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles chart and #1 on the Canadian RPM Country Tracks. The song expresses just how country Loretta is, as she hopes to find a slow-talkin' country boy and loves to run barefoot through cornfields.
Before performing, Underwood had a few words to say about the woman who she sees as an inspiration:
"I'm a very lucky woman for many reasons, but one of many reasons is that I have a lot of really amazing women that I get to look up to that pave the way for people like me to be in country music now. One of my favorites, and one of the strongest women - I'm talking about Loretta Lynn - We're gonna do a song now that's all hers, but I'm going to do my best not to mess it up."
Underwood's rendition of Lynn's classic song was absolutely fantastic. She paid homage to the Queen of Country in all the right ways. Obviously, no one can sing this like the great Loretta, but Underwood really showcased her exceptional talent with this one and it's nice to know that today's country artists still have respect for the legends that made it all possible.
This performance is a must-see, so don't miss out on it! Check it out.
