Carrie Underwood‘s fans were treated to a performance by an unexpected guest during the singer’s REFLECTION: The Las Vegas Residency on Saturday (March 26). Carrie invited her mom Carole Underwood on stage to help her sing her 2007 hit “All-American Girl.”
“Come here, my love,” Underwood said as she led her mom to center stage. “This is mom! Are you ready? Do you have anything you want to say to these fine people?”
“I’m so happy you’re here and I hope you enjoy the show,” Carole said to the crowd of cheering fans before the intro for “All-American Girl” began to play.
The pair went on to perform the song together with Carole singing every word enthusiastically, even going solo at times.
Carrie shared photos of their performance on social media along with a note crediting her mom with her success.
“’If you wanna go, I’ll take you.’ These might have been the most pivotal words anyone has ever spoken to me,” Carrie wrote. “I was busy talking myself out of trying out for American Idol and my mom said these words…the rest is history. Tonight, I got to sing with her on stage in front of the most incredible crowd in #LasVegas ❤️ Life sure is amazing! Thanks, Mom, for everything!”

Saturday wasn’t the first time Carole joined her daughter on stage. During a 2019 tour stop in Tulsa, near Carrie’s Oklahoma hometown, Carole Underwood took on the rap parts in “The Champion.” The recorded version of the song featured rapper Ludacris and served as an opening theme for NBC Sports’ tv broadcast of Super Bowl LII.
