Carrie Underwood had an incredible once-in-a-lifetime interaction with her fellow champions.
The seven-time CMA award-winner surprised students from Old Hickory, Tennessee’s Andrew Jackson Elementary School ahead of CMA Fest. The Eagle Honor Choir caught Underwood’s attention for their well-produced cover of her hit song “The Champion”.
“I can’t wait for you guys to crush it on Sunday,” Underwood told the kids. “You guys are going to be amazing. That crowd is not going to know what hit’em.” The Eagle Honor Choir even gave the country star a special performance of “The Champion” cover at rehearsals.
Following their visit from Underwood, the kids performed in front of 50,000-plus attendees at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium during CMA Fest in June.
