Just two hours after receiving the American Music Award for Favorite Female Country Artist for the fourth consecutive year in a row and performing “Spinning Bottles” during the award show, Carrie Underwood took the stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live! for the debut performance of the track “Ghosts On The Stereo” from her sixth studio album, Cry Pretty. Penned by Tom Douglas, Hillary Lindsey and the late Andrew Dorff, “Ghosts On The Stereo” tells the story of a person reclusively letting themselves emotionally fall apart at home due to a failed relationship one final time, before pulling themselves together and moving on.
Closing out the show, Jimmy Kimmel introduced the performance with a Cry Pretty vinyl in-hand, “This is her album, it’s called Cry Pretty. Here with her song “Ghosts On The Stereo”, Carrie Underwood.” Backed by a full band, Underwood took the stage in a gorgeous metallic blouse that put her adorable baby bump on display. The crowd began to sway along to every word but once the beat drop at the end of the first chorus hit, the audience transitioned into full-fledged dancing. As always, her astonishing vocal range made this yet another unforgettable performance. Off camera, the country superstar continued her outdoor mini-concert with two of her older hits, “Before He Cheats” and “Dirty Laundry,” as well as the new album’s title track, “Cry Pretty,” and powerful anthem “Love Wins.”
The singer-songwriter undoubtedly gave fans watching Jimmy Kimmel Live! a taste of what’s to come on her ‘Cry Pretty Tour 360’ which will kick off next Spring with special guests Maddie & Tae and Runaway June. The tour will touch down in New York City on October 2, 2019, at the iconic Madison Square Garden. Tickets are available here.
