Underwood opened the show with her six-week #1 debut single “Jesus, Take The Wheel” and spoke of the honor she felt to be on the Opry stage and that the circle is still unbroken. Underwood went on to perform many of her hits including “Dirty Laundry” and “I Told You So.” Paisley performed his new single “No I In Beer” and several other hits as well as duetting with Underwood on “Whiskey Lullaby,” “Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man,” and their hit “Remind Me.” Before the closing song, Paisley said, “These times are so unique, and I find it so inspiring that the Opry is still going. When all is said and done, we will never take for granted getting to come out here and sing again. For me, as long as the Opry keeps going, I have hope!” The pair closed the show with “Will the Circle Be Unbroken.”
Paisley and Underwood have been friends since touring together early in Underwood’s career. The two multi-award winning superstars went on to an 11-year run as one of the most popular and successful hosting duos in CMA Awards history. Paisley has been an Opry member since 2001 and Underwood has been an Opry member since 2008.
