It’s one of the most anticipated ACM Awards moments, and Reba McEntire did not disappoint. Riding high off the success of her gospel album Sing It Now: Songs of Faith & Hope, McEntire took Las Vegas to church with an amazing performance of her single “Back To God.”

The red-headed singer announced her performance via a Facebook video announcement.
“I’m so excited to tell everyone that I’m performing a very special version of my single ‘Back To God’ with the incredible Contemporary Christian artist Lauren Daigle at the 52nd ACM Awards,” she said. “It’s gonna be fun night filled with performances from all of your favorites that you do not want to miss!”

McEntire’s gospel album included two discs, one of which was filled with traditional hymns, while the second is all original songs. “Back to God” is included on the second disc and was written by Randy Houser and Dallas Davidson.
McEntire’s good buddy Ronnie Dunn introduced the pair, who walked out on stage looking heavenly.
