Carrie Underwood to Perform at Emmy Awards During 50th Anniversary Tribute

by at . Comments

In addition NBC's Sunday Night Football theme song, country superstar Carrie Underwood can be seen at the Emmy Awards this Sunday night on CBS.

The six-time Grammy Award winner will perform during a special tribute honoring the 50th anniversary of 1963 television milestones. Why is that significant?

Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher Picture

Actor Don Cheadle will present a moving tribute to television’s role in assassination coverage of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963.

He will then connect that event to the legendary performance of The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show just 80 days later on February 9, 1964.

Both of these historic events are often mentioned together as two of the most significant TV moments in history, and the segment will link to two.

Following Cheadle’s presentation, Carrie Underwood (pictured above with husband Mike Fisher) will honor the music of the era with a special performance.

As if you needed another reason to tune in.
