Carrie Underwood kicked off Sunday night's Academy of Country Music Awards with a big blast of rock 'n' roll, showing her vocal chops in belting out "Good Girl."
Her sexy black and magenta mini-dress was a nice touch too.
To those looking for a lot of traditional twang out of the country gala, Carrie's song was something of a warning shot ... this is 21st century country music.
The ACMs are very much a celebration of what the genre has become, with arena rockers (Kenny Chesney and Jason Aldean) and a wave of 20-something upstarts incorporating different sounds into the genre (Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum).
