LAS VEGAS, Nev. (April 4, 2022) — Carrie Underwood performed her single “Ghost Story” for the first time ever at the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards. This is the country singer’s first single since the release of “Drinking Alone” in 2019.
“I’m gonna be your ghost story. The keeping you up, all night memory. I’ll be haunting you, you’ll be wanting me. I’m gonna be your ghost story.” Underwood belts out each word as sheer, purple waves of fabric gracefully flow out from her lower torso.
Released in March, the song tells a story of revenge after a break up; The lyrics seem to paint a picture of holding onto an old lover. She croons the crowd, while describing the ways her love will follow [him] forever. Underwood produced this track alongside David Garcia, who also co-produced her sixth studio album, “Cry Pretty”.
The “Before He Cheats” singer is no stranger to GRAMMY performances, since she, herself, is a seven-time GRAMMY Award winner. This is Underwood’s first GRAMMY performance since 2013, when she performed “Two Black Cadillacs” and “Blown Away”.
She added a shiny new gilded gramophone to her collection on Sunday night just before taking the stage – taking home Best Roots Gospel Album for her 2021 project, “My Savior”. Her song “If I Didn’t Love You” with Jason Aldean also landed her a nomination for best country duo/group performance.
It’s bittersweet, as this GRAMMY performance also marks the Country Singer’s last performance in the entertainment capital of the world for a while. It comes just days after she expressed her feelings toward her Las Vegas Residency, “REFLECTION”, nearly coming to an end.
“I’m sad I only have one more show until I head home. I cannot explain how much I love #REFLECTION! Let’s do it again tomorrow night!” Underwood posted this caption to Instagram, alongside a carousel of pictures from all her numerous performances in the city.
There are 6 more dates remaining in her residency, for which she will return to Vegas in May to complete.
