Carrie Underwood has become one of the biggest names in country music, since winning American Idol’s fourth season in 2005.

And the seven-time Grammy winner has often shown her appreciation for the women who came before her.

On Wednesday, she paid tribute to Dolly Parton, Patson Cline and other country queens, performing a mix of hits at the 55th Academy of Country Music Awards.

The 37-year-old dazzled in a red floral gown as she marked the 95th anniversary of the historic Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, where she took the stage.

She prefaced the song, addressing the empty audience: “Patsy and Loretta, Martina and Barbara, Reba and Dolly. These strong voices mean so much to me and to all the other female artists who stand on their shoulders.

“These are some of my heroes, and I am very honored to stand with them as a member of the Grand Ole Opry. It is my pleasure to pay tribute to these legendary ladies as we celebrate the 95th anniversary of the Opry.

Artist Last Name was also nominated for Female Artist of the Year, which ultimately went to Maren Morris.

Carrie took to Instagram before the show, as she put rollers in her hair, while getting ready in leopard-print leggings from her CALIA by Carrie line, writing, “Get ready for tonight! Let’s do this, @ACMawards! ‘

After a five-month delay, amid the global COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s show was moved from Las Vegas to Nashville for the first time, with no live audience.

Artists like Carrie have taken the stage at three iconic country music venues, including Grand Ole Opry, Ryman Auditorium, and Bluebird Cafe.
