Talk about full circle moments — nearly 10 years ago, country music queen Carrie Underwood released her groundbreaking single “Jesus Take the Wheel,” fresh off her win on “American Idol” — and the song went straight to No. 1 on the Country chart.
The same writers, Brett James and Hillary Lindsey, who helped pen Carrie’s first chart topper are also responsible for her 24th No. 1 single, “Church Bells.” The talented trio joined together to celebrate their success with a party in Nashville.
While there, Carrie performed an acoustic version of the hit and it was, obviously, flawless.
And, since Carrie earns No. 1 hits faster than she can plan a party, the songstress and friends also celebrated her 23rd No. 1 hit “Heartbeat” with songwriters Zach Crowell and Ashley Gorley.
Before the party, Carrie talked about her upcoming role as co-host for the 50th Annual CMA Awards. She said Brad Paisley may even wear a tux this year. We’d love to see that.
In the meantime, she’s gearing up for the second leg of her Storyteller Tour, which kicks off in Alaska on August 31.
