Carrie Underwood released her new single, “Ghost Story” on March 18. The song has Underwood singing to a former lover, saying how her memory will continue to haunt him forever.
Underwood delivered her first live performance of the song at the 2022 Grammy Awards on April 3.
Just a little over a week later, Underwood delivered another performance of “Ghost Story” during the 2022 CMT Music Awards. The annual fan-voted awards ceremony was held on Monday night (April 11). Kelsea Ballerni and Anthony Mackie served as the hosts.
Underwood has been a staple performer at the CMT Music Awards over the years. She is also the most-awarded artist in the show’s history, with a total of 23 wins to her name. To top it off, she holds the record for the most wins in the Video of the Year Category.
Once again, Underwood was up for Video of the Year at the 2022 ceremony. Her and Jason Aldean‘s music video for their duet, “If I Didn’t Love You,” was nominated in the category. It was also nominated for Collaborative Video of the Year.
But before the winner of Video of the Year was revealed, Underwood took to the stage to sing “Ghost Story.”
In the leadup to the ceremony, Underwood was teasing the fact that this performance would be unlike any other she’s ever done. She wasn’t kidding!
Underwood’s performance was pretaped at Resorts World Las Vegas, the home of her Reflection residency.

Vegas performances are known for being elaborate, and Underwood’s performance was no exception. She started off by singing on a raised platform in the middle of the stage as a group of acrobats performed around her while using aerial silks.
Then, in a stunning moment, Underwood joined the acrobats in her own set of silks. She delivered the end of the song while suspended in midair!
