Dressed in flowing blue, Underwood sang in front of a massive video screen that projected a dazzling array of colors and eye-popping designs. In typical fashion, Underwood delivered a polished, impressive vocal performance, extending one big note ahead of the final chorus. To drive home the song’s message, she was joined by the diverse members of a choir who harmonized with her in the final moments of the song, making heart signs with their hands as they received a standing ovation.

“Love Wins,” which Underwood wrote with David Garcia and Brett James, appears on Underwood’s 2018 album Cry Pretty. Released in September, Cry Pretty is Underwood’s sixth full-length album and first where she served as a producer, working alongside collaborator Garcia. “It was all about taking more ownership over what I was doing in my artistry. It was kind of a leap of faith,” Underwood recently told Vulture about the decision to produce her own work.
Underwood, who co-hosted the CMAs with Brad Paisley for an 11th time, will launch her headlining Cry Pretty Tour next May, featuring guests Maddie & Tae and Runaway June.
