During a recent appearance on The Howard Stern Show, country superstar Carrie Underwood opened up about her love for rock legends Guns N’ Roses and what it was like to perform with the band’s frontman, Axl Rose.
Underwood, who has covered Guns N’ Roses songs in the past, revealed that the band had been a major influence on her growing up. “I have been a fan of theirs since I was a little girl,” she said. “It’s just one of those things where they’ve always been there.”
The singer also talked about her experience performing with Axl Rose during the 2017 CMA Awards. The unlikely duo teamed up for a rendition of Guns N’ Roses classic “Paradise City.”
Underwood also revealed that Rose was very hands-on when it came to planning the performance.
Despite her success as a country artist, Underwood has always been a fan of rock music. In addition to Guns N’ Roses, she has covered songs by other rock icons, such as Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith.
It’s always great to see artists stepping out of their comfort zones and collaborating with musicians from other genres. Carrie Underwood’s performance with Axl Rose is just one example of how unexpected collaborations can lead to unforgettable moments in music.
