On Wednesday (Sept. 16), Carrie Underwood wowed fans with a show-stopping medley of songs during the 55th Academy of Country Music Awards.

The superstar took the stage at the Grand Ole Opry to honor Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Barbara Mandrell, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton in celebration of the 95th anniversary of the Grand Ole Opry.

An Opry member herself, the Oklahoma native performed Cline’s “Crazy,” Lynn’s “You Ain’t Woman Enough,” Mandrell’s “I Was Country When Country Wasn’t Cool,” Parton’s “Why’d You Come in Here Lookin’ Like That,” McEntire’s “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia” and McBride’s “Broken Wing.”

Underwood’s goosebump-inducing performance was one of the most buzzed-about moments of the night and will likely go down in history as one of her most memorable awards show moments ever.

Following the show, one of Underwood’s longtime fans pieced together an incredible video, showcasing the newly-crowned ACM Entertainer of the Year performing “Broken Wing” 22 years ago alongside her ACM Awards performance. The throwback clip even caught the attention of Underwood, who shared the video and wrote, “Still love @MartinaMcBride and singing this song 22 years later!”

After tying with Thomas Rhett for the ACM Awards Entertainer of the Year title, Carrie Underwood has now become the first female artist in ACM history to take home the honor three times.

Underwood previously won ACM Entertainer of the Year in 2008 and 2009 when the award was partially fan-voted.
