As Carrie wraps up her time in Las Vegas for her Reflection residency at the Resorts World Theatre until she returns for more shows in September, she seemingly commemorated the occasion in a unique way with her family.
Carrie shared a carousel of photos on Instagram earlier, saying that her 74-year old mom, Carole, asked Carrie and her two sisters, Shanna and Stephanie, to get matching tattoos with her while they were in Sin City.
She joked that they were in shock that Carole wanted to that, adding that she “never thought she would’ve seen the day” that her mom would get some ink.
But hey, you know what they say about Las Vegas…
“When your 74-year-old mother asks you and your sisters to get matching tattoos with her in Vegas, the only questions are, ‘what?’ and ‘where?’
I never would’ve thought I’d see the day that Mama Carole would be gettin’ some ink!#WhatHappensInVegas.”
It looks like they all got the same small heart on the inside of their wrist, with Carrie getting the same exact heart on her foot:
Back in May, Carrie got a small flower tattoo while on a beach trip to Destin, Florida with her sisters-in-law, so it sounds like this might be a new tradition of sorts with Carrie and her female family members:
💎 September 20, 22, 23, 27, 29, 30
💎 November 29
💎 December 1, 2, 6, 8, 9, 13, 15, 16
Carrie Underwood Brings Her Mom On Stage To Sing “All-American Girl”
Who knew mama Underwood could sing, too?
Carrie Underwood brought her mom, Carole, up on stage during a show last year at her Las Vegas residency, Reflection, to sing “All-American Girl”.
Co-written by Carrie along with Ashley Gorley and Kelley Lovelace, it was the second single from Carrie’s 2007 album Carnival Ride, eventually peaking at #1 on the Billboard U.S. Hot Country Songs chart.
When Carrie asked her mom if there was “anything you want to say to these fine people?”, Carole responded:
“I’m so happy you’re here, and I hope you enjoy the show.”
And while it was more like a karaoke session than full-blown professional performance, it’s adorable to see the two of them up there singing together. And you can tell Carrie comes by her natural stage presence honestly, because Carole jumped right in like it was nothin’, belting out every line she could in between their laughter.
Carrie later shared a sweet Instagram post about the moment, noting just how important her mom has been throughout her career and the advice she gave her way back at the beginning of her country music journey on American Idol:
“‘If you wanna go, I’ll take you.’ These might have been the most pivotal words anyone has ever spoken to me.
I was busy talking myself out of trying out for American Idol and my mom said these words…the rest is history.
Tonight, I got to sing with her on stage in front of the most incredible crowd in #LasVegas. Life sure is amazing! Thanks, Mom, for everything!”
