Carrie Underwood was on double duties at the live telecast of the 44th Annual Country Music Association (CMA) Awards. Beside hosting the show with fellow country music singer Brad Paisley, she also performed more than one song at the November 10 event.

First, the "American Idol" alum opened the awards show with "Songs Like This". She delivered her powerful voice to the high-energy tune with Keith Urban assisting her on the banjo, and co-host Paisley strumming the guitar. She later returned to the stage to sing ballad track "Mama's Song".

Like Underwood, Paisley and Urban were also given a solo set each in addition to appearing on stage to support her performance. Paisley who won Entertainer of the Year that night catered fans with "This Is Country Music", and Urban sang "Put You in a Song".

The Bass player is the sickest upright player I've ever known. His name is Joe Fick check out his stuff.

Carrie is a great singer but somebody needs to work with her on her body moves when she's performing. That bent over chicken walk thing she does is just awful and very unappealing. It's a turn off actually.

I think she sucks and hate how she kicks up her knees when she dances

mike alan - you know that singing "flat" is "off key". They aren't two seperate things. You can be "sharp" which is also "off key", but "flat" is definitely still "off key". Carrie had a few "off key" moments in "Mamma's Song", but of all the performers of the night she had less "off key" moments.
