Carrie Underwood is so rock and roll, and I’m here for it.

She’s actually a huge fan of rock music, and is especially a self-proclaimed lover of Guns N’ Roses, even covering them quite a bit on her her Denim & Rhinestones tour last year.

She previously brought out frontman Axl Rose for a performance of “Sweet Child Of Mine” and “Paradise City” during her headlining set at Stagecoach last year, and also surprised fans at one of their shows in London to sing with the whole band.

And about two weeks ago, Carrie’s dreams came true when she got to open for the band at their show in Nashville, Tennessee at Geodis Park (in addition to opening a couple other shows in Canada).

During the evening, she joined Axl on stage for a duet of a couple songs, including fan-favorites “Sweet Child Of Mine” and “Paradise City,” but one of the coolest moments came when she delivered a rousing cover of Motörhead’s “Ace Of Spades.”

Written by frontman Lemmy along with former guitarist Eddie Clarke (who left the band two years later, as he says he was “forced” out) and drummer Phil Taylor, the song was included as the title track to their 1980 album Ace of Spades.

It’s certainly Carrie like you’ve never seen (or heard) her before, and I love every single second of it. She crushed this cover, and I was pleasantly surprised with how good it is.

I of course love Carrie’s stunning vocals on songs like “How Great Thou Art,” where her pure and angelic voice shines, but this is just too much fun.

Do yourself a favor and check it out:
